Silver tag:

There are also two Chinas, but gear is labeled either China or Taiwan (mostly). Trying to be too pedantic about it could lead to more confusion than sticking with what the manufacturer felt most suitable and labeled accordingly.

Well. The Dutch live in the Netherlands. Only the western part with the cities (Amsterdam, Rotterdam) lie in Holland. Strictly. Sometimes the 'other' people don't want to name themselves 'Hollanders'. It's all about regions...
