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)

Ulaanbaatar?

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)

Caretaker

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.

Looks like that's Geoff. I'm sure he wouldn't mind your contributions as well. I'd reach out to him with your ideas. Just rememeber, QSS reigns! BoArthur 16:05, 27 July 2015 (PDT)
