"Confused with Switzerland." King of Swaziland renamed state

45
On the world map today there are regular changes. This time, this is not about uniting and not splitting the states of the world, but about renaming.


"Confused with Switzerland." King of Swaziland renamed state


King of Swaziland Mswati the Third decided to leave a significant mark on stories African state by changing its name. Instead of Swaziland, a state called the Kingdom of Eswatini will now appear on the world map.

What caused such a decision, explains the king personally. According to him, if a citizen of Swaziland is abroad, then the name of the country there "Associated with Switzerland" - by the first letters of the word. Who specifically associates the Swazilands with the Swiss, Mswati III did not explain. If only CNN, in the reports of which Kiev is confused with Ulan Bator, is still in news reports indicate on the map a country called "Czechoslovakia", and the location of Donbass is shown somewhere in the Islamabad region.


The same report about Ukraine with the map of "Czechoslovakia".


Esvatini, as explained by the king, means "Land of Swazi". The decision to rename was made on the 50 anniversary of the country's independence. Mswati the Third recalls that such a name was his land before the British colonization.

Is it possible that if the name Swaziland, according to the king, is associated with Switzerland, then the name Eswatini will be associated with Estonia? .. Exactly for the same reason - by the first letters.

For reference: Swaziland is a state in southern Africa with a population of 1,1 million people. Below the poverty line in Swaziland is about 54% of the population. Every fifth subject is illiterate. Average life expectancy is 49 years. The per capita income level is 152 in the world. King Mswati the Third (aka - Ngvenyama - "the lion") occupies the throne from 1986.

    Apparently, the kingdom is also not among the prosperous states. Mswati the Third would have left a significant mark in the history of the African state if he had raised the standard of living of his subjects.

      He beat, not the king. On the contrary, he needs the name of his country as close as possible to Switzerland. And more banks to open. And there, you see, some oligarch, urgently withdrawing capital to a safe place, will be mistaken by the country and put a couple of green lamas in a Swaziland bank. And then show on local television (if, of course, they have it) how this clown with a Schengen visa will come to get his money.

    Yes, let it be amused, they have no big problems to see in the kingdom. Looks like in Switzerland trillions of euros lie on the bill, and so that Trump did not get this money, they decided to change the name of the country!

        Gold, diamonds and coal - not enough, but there is (we do not give a damn, but now we know smile) What they call themselves there is their business. They were called themselves before the colonization by the British. In general, why so much attention? The main attraction is every 4th HIV carrier, like, as in the leaders. To this day, I have never heard of all this. smile

        Soon, if in some small state they find oil, gold, or diamonds, then the locals will quickly bury everything back in the ground, so that no one would know. Otherwise, they will quickly begin to instill in Western democracy, in the form of bombings and revolutions. laughing

      He has enough affairs, every year he chooses a new wife. All the virgins of Swaziland gather every year for the Reed festival (100 thousand girls). Imagine what a daunting task it is to choose another wife. hi

And outside there is some kind of bastard. Who would have thought .. How will the heirs share the booty? Well this is how many ronin will resolve around the world, it's just terrible. does swaziland steers?

    He is king and king in Africa. I wanted to rename and renamed. Now in Europe they will breathe a sigh of relief - the confusion will disappear and the resident of Swaziland can not be confused with the Swiss, because outwardly "very similar."

      Think about it, because it is closer to you purely geographically, and in content there are a number of common signs. Don't you find? Make an alliance, it's about time. Russia already has an exhaustive search for “allies” who dream of changing their name.

    Who specifically Swaziland associates with the Swiss, Mswati the Third did not explain. If only CNN, in whose reports Kiev is confused with Ulan Bator, still in the news reports indicate a country called “Czechoslovakia” on a map, and the location of Donbass is shown somewhere in the region of Islamabad.

    Damn, everyone who knows English can read from those and associates. As I understand it, this is not about the authors of VO. Sam just recently read Swaziland as Switzerland. He also returned and rechecked - Sweden or Switzerland, but he came to the conclusion that Switzerland.
