Poland's a country in Europe. Shouldnt that be right?

I wouldn't say that that is proper English, though colloquially we will mash a subject and "is" into a contraction with an apostrophe and an "s":

Tom is at the store. = Tom's at the store. Europe is a continent, not a country. = Europe's a continent, not a country. This bread is really moldy. = This bread's really moldy.

I honestly would probably never write things out this way, but, as I said, in speech it is very common.

... at least for the moment. It's not like they are going in the right direction lately... :(

I did it the way Duo wants, but was wondering if страна could be translated "nation"?
