Which is correct? Swisslande or Switzerland? Swisslande is referenced on the front-page, Switzerland has an article written about it. BoLingua 03:31, 30 Hrēþmōnaþ 2006 (UTC)

Not sure. I would have preferred "Switzerland". (In MnE, "Swiss" is a recent usage. The people of that land used to be called "Switzers", hence our name "Switzerland". "Switzer", like "Schweiz", comes from the canton of Schwyz.)
In either case the "Confederation" in the original German is an "Eidgenossenschaft", or "Āþbēorscipe" on Englisce.
