What is Switzerlands Nickname?

Switzerland hasn't really got a nickname, or you could say Switzerland is itself a nickname. The full official name translates into English as 'Swiss Confederation'.

The official name in all the languages spoken in Switzerland is:
  • German: Schweizerische Eidgenossenschaft (shortened to 'Schweiz')
  • French: ConfĂ©dĂ©ration suisse (shortened to 'Suisse')
  • Italian: Confederazione Svizzera (shortened to 'Svizzera')
  • Romansh: Confederaziun svizra (shortened to 'Svizra')
  • Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica

Latin is used as a neutral language when there is no room to put all 4 official languages, for example on coins and for the abbreviation for the country 'CH'.
