Do countries usually take the superessive case like this? Does that mean they also take the sublative case for "going to" a country?

Countries that take the superessive/sublative/delative are:

  • Islands (Izlandon, Fülöp-szigeteken)
  • Countries that end in "-föld" (Thaiföldön, Szváziföldön)
  • Hungary

So they have national pride built into the language? I love that!
