I also hated myself for clicking Great Britain :-)
As an outsider, I'm curious about this. My (perhaps innacurate?)
understanding was that "Great Britain" was more a geographical term
referring to everything on the islands rather than a political boundary
(as opposed to "UK" which is purely a political concept and includes
some, but not all, of the countries on the same islands). Is that not
enitrely correct? Or is that exactly the the part that's uncomfortable -
that it's a "Country" field which lacks the actual country name and only
offers a geographic collection in its place?
