What's the justification for this change, or indeed for this entry?
The country coded GB is "The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern
Ireland". "Britain" is a generic term referring to part of the UK *and*
part of France. "Great Britain" is the single largest landmass in the UK,
but so what?
NEITHER "Britain" NOR "Great Britain" IS THE NAME OF THIS COUNTRY.
Would you accept:
US Continental contiguous United States
