England is not a country. The name of the country is "UK" (United Kingdom).

To be fair, the amount CIC use 'England', 'Great Britain', 'UK', and 'British citizen' interchangeably all in response to the word "country", sometimes on the same form....

OP, question #7 & 12 on imm5669 asks for "town and country". The boxes on that form allows for Bristol England

Question 8 asks, town, or city & country

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kit...s/imm5669E.pdf

I suppose if its Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysilio gogogoch, then I would put Llanfair' Wales or UK

UK or GBR would work

"Hannover, Germany", probably fits in most cases though.

which is what it gets changed to, however, as I am sure you are aware, it implies born as German citizen not as a pads brat on a UK army base.

Maybe that is the perception from a British, US, or Canadian perspective, but the connection between place of birth and German citizenship is far more tenuous.

In any case, government forms are often badly designed/worded, and if you start trying to shoehorn the information into a form that you think belongs in there, but wasn't explicitly asked for, then you can end up tying yourself in an administrative knot.

far too true, after trying to explain to an Argentine immigration officer for over an hour the difference, which includes descriptions of the British Army of the Rhine, I was ready to just be German if it got me out of there on time.
