One of our number started this UNofficial FACTS site, that he decided to call UNFACTS. Under his terminology, we are all FACTOIDS!

a mini-mission to have Mogambo appear on National Geographic maps
Hold your horses, bel! Just occurs to me that Mogambo could be an old name for a region now known by another name. In a similar manner to Ceylon 'becoming' Sri Lanka and Rhodesia, ummm, Zaire isn't it? And what was Yugoslavia now being officially recognised as a bunch of smaller countries.
Both Marty's reference articles are dated 1997 - may this have been the last time when it was politically acceptable to use the old name?
Just an idea.

Rhodesia is Zimbabwe. There seem to be a few web sites with Zimbabwe addresses so you could have be on the right track.
