I see that Mongolia uses Cyrillic, like *here*. However, they only use it here because of the very large influence from Russia. Is there such an influence *there*? I think it would make sense if they used their own script... Duane 15:56, 19 December 2005 (PST)
- Probably you are right. *Here* Inner Mongolia still uses Mongolian script. Abdul-aziz 12:50, 20 February 2007 (PST)
Why the capital of Mongolia is named Ulaanbaatar? That means literally "red hero" (named after Damdin Sühbaatar, who *here* liberated Mongolia from Ungern von Sternberg's troops) and is of communist origin. Paweł Ciupak 11:47, 20 February 2007 (PST)
- Probably this was not thought about previously. Ulan-Ude is known as Sagan-Ude in IB for example. I don't know Mongolian language or country's history in IB (perhaps it was not developed at all) so I cannot suggest another name however. Abdul-aziz 12:50, 20 February 2007 (PST)
- Before-communist name of the city (1911-1924, in times of Bogd Khan and Ungern von Sternberg (which may be a SNOR-ist *there*)) was Niislel Hüree ("capital city"), and probably this may it's name *there*. Paweł Ciupak 14:51, 20 February 2007 (PST)
- Sounds plausible. What is it with East Asian nations having capitals that just mean "capital" or "[adjective] capital"? :-) Nik 20:00, 20 February 2007 (PST)
- "effective pragmatism" might be the name of the naming disease... Jan II. 07:24, 22 February 2007 (PST)
If they would be willing, would the creator of this nation be able to make me the keeper of said nation? If not, I understand, but I'm basically jobless when it comes to countries right now.
