    Not in US, but what for? If you mean because of DST, not all states follow DST changes, some even have regions in regions of states where DST changes or doesn't (eg: crossing Arizona diagonally has you changing the clock SEVEN times due to that), plus not all states that follow DST change time on the same date, US is a mindfuck as always, you people just can't keep things simple:P

    Most of the time when people say "oh the US is so complex" they kinda forget that all 5p states are basically their own country and could do whatever they want, and they tend to do really different things

    I know that, all the more reason US is complex, why is it even treated as one country when most states are wealthy and autonomous enough to be their own country (eg: CA)? Just because of some stupid treaty from 200 or so years ago, they just keep making things make less and less sense

    The UK actually IS different countries, 5 really (even though the last one is hardly mentioned), North Ireland (rest of Ireland isn't part of it), England, Scotland, Wales and City of London (yes, that's a COUNTRY inside normal London).

    Had no idea that Northern Ireland was actually considered separate from the rest. Now to go and check if my Irish bud is a commie bastard

    @kikongokiller Northern Ireland isn't separate, mainland Ireland is. The north is part of the UK, while the rest of the island is independent, making them two separate countries. There's a lot of hassle surrounding this actually since Ireland wants to stay in the EU but Northern Ireland is leaving it alongside the rest of the UK. Probably will mean they'll add border control.

    Otherwise ThoD is mostly right although City of London is not a country, it is a county.

    To quote Wikipedia: "The United Kingdom, made up of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, is an island nation in northwestern Europe. "

    It dawned on me after posting this that you might have meant its separate from the rest of Ireland, in which case yes.

    I meant for CoL that it's not really counted as a country, but it literally has everything an independent country has, self sufficient, has it's own government, it's own laws, pretty much everything about it legally is separated from the rest of England and so on... But anyway, sorry for derailing yet another profile post lol
