Location ST

Hello,

I was messing around around with the inspect element and I managed to set my location to “ST”. I don't know any nations with this initialism. I did this by editing the form input (On the location drop-down menu in settings) from “United Kingdom” to “ST”. I have seen this on other user's profiles. I can't seem to change it to anything but the given location options or ST.

EDIT: I've found I can do it with other letter combinations as well.

EDIT: More info: You can only do 2 capital letters, the last one being “T”, as far as I can see. So thats: AT BT CT DT ET FT GT HT IT JT LT MT OT QT…

IT is Italy, and BT is Bhutan. Looks like the location is using the two-letter country code when it should. Does setting it back to United Kingdom give UK?

I like the glitch. I don't know about you, but I don't want it to be fixed. Wait, is it even a glitch? I made my location NO. I think it also works for US, if I'm correct.

I'm just a little cosmic hamster from Planet NO, which is in another dimension. Are you, too?

Check out my games, if you want to. I make sure to share a cool variety, but even though I haven't shared much, I try to make each one count, but they can only count to 7 so far.
