This is the Czech Republic.
Possibly soon to be called Czechia.
Foreign Minister Lubomir Zaoralek said the decision to make the change was partly because of "distortions and misspellings" in the past.
If the new name is approved by parliament, ministers will submit it to the United Nations this summer, asking them to update their records.
The country will still officially be named the Czech Republic — in the same way France is officially the French Republic — with Czechia serving as the official geographic name.
