After Macedonia changed its name, 10 other countries followed suit

Skopje, Republic of North Macedonia

The Macedonian Parliament voted on Friday to pass a resolution that changes the country’s name, from the awkwardly long “Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” to a more viking-sounding one: Republic of North Macedonia. This is expected to solve the decades old dispute with Greece and allow the small Balkan country to keep its EU membership dreams alive. Realising that it is so easy to change a country’s name, 10 other countries followed suit, in a quest to make their own nations more attractive.

  1. The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland will change its name to The United Kingdom of Incompetence
  2. The Russian Federation will change its name to The Federation of Ex-Soviet States and the North Pole
  3. Hungary (Magyarorszag) just voted to change its name to NemSorosOrszag
  4. Turkey will now be called The Islamic Republic of  the North Saudi Ghetto
  5. Venezuela is as of today the Poor People’s Republic of No Food
  6. Moldova changed its name to East Romania, which is their only hope to enter the European Union
  7. The European Union is now The Union of Europe, Poland* and Hungary*
  8. Sweden changed its name to IKEA Republic
  9. Syria is the Islamic State of Boom-Boom
  10. The United States of America is the Twitter Federation
