What's "lv"? Latvia? I ask because it is, of course, Livagia in the world in which Livagia exists. I don't know what Latvia is. Hmm. If "lt" is (I guess) Lithuania, then that only really leaves "lv" for Latvia, so Livagia would have to be "li" or "lg", unless Latvia were "la" or Lithuania were "li" or "ln". Who was it that decided these 2-letter country codes? Is there a list of them somewhere? Were they first established before the break-up of the Soviet Union (which would mean that Livagia would have been assigned "lv" before Latvia became independent)? --And.
