Some of the currently used long labels are outdated. E.g. "Poland, Peoples Republic of" is now "Poland, Republic of".

E.g. Phycobank Registration 100118 ff.

WHK: Just wanted to select "Poland", why I have to select "Poland, Peoples Republic of". With this selection from 1945+, we do not get acceptance from Polish colleagues.
How to change these strange political values? Or - why we can not use the English short names?

Note: the handling of long and short forms of country representations is handled in #4209

Musste heute im PhycoBank Production-System einen Country-Eintrag wieder rausnehmen. Ich wollte den Eintrag "Romania" haben, aber bekam nur "Romania, Socialist Republic of" angeboten. Das kann ich für einen 2018er Eintrag als inhaltlich Verantwortlicher nicht veröffentlichen. Jetzt ist im Eintrag eine Datenlücke, wenigstens kein Datenfehler.
