I think it's off-topic, so I will only answer this email and shut my
mouth. But from what you quote, i only understand that the UK and the UN
don't have the same definition of what a country is. So, as it seems
that even the UK, the UN, the International Olympic Committee, the
International Rugby Board and the FIFA couldn't agree on what was a
country and what wasn't, it's pointless discussing it here.

Or does anyone have a perfect, universal definition of what a country is
(off-list) ?
