Re: USAGE: German revised spellings

Rearranging my books, I came upon a year-old issue of The Economist,
listing some events scheduled for 1998 - and one of them was:
        August - Eight countries whose people (or many of them) speak German
        begin a seven-year bid to reform German spelling.  Will anyone spot
        the difference?

Eight, hm?  Three obvious, plus Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Italy?,
Poland?, Czechland?
