East Timor is Timor's Spain. It is a pesky little country in the Indian Ocean that can't decide whether it is part of Eurasia or part of Oceania. Either way, it would have been part of one of the three superstates that existed in the years 1984 and 1985.
Another good nickname for East Timor would be Australia's Iraq. While America has soldiers bringing democracy to and keeping the peace of freedom in Iraq, Australia has soldiers bringing democracy to and keeping the peace of freedom in East Timor. The biggest difference is that East Timor is an island. It probably has oil in it, or nobody would be bothering.
