# Objects that are countries or nationalities (#2)

A follow-up to Dmitry Kamenetsky's Objects that are countries or nationalities.

Can you figure out what these countries and nationalities are based on the clues?

Country Clue
? nuts
? punched paper
? a pepper
? a gold coin
Nationality Clue
? a woven carpet
? a wood patch
? a pastry
? a young fish
? a shiny substance
?* a great dog

All words are valid words in the SOWPODS dictionary with the exception of the nationality marked with ?*.

Hint:

All answers, with the exception of #1 ("nuts") and #11 ("a great dog"), are nouns (by themselves) with the clue as their meaning when not capitalized.

Hint #2:

The answer to #7 ("an advocate") is commonly preceded by a five-letter word. The phrase originated from a movement consisting of people of this nationality before becoming a generic term.

Hint #3:

 Countries
_ _ _ _ _ _ = nuts
_ _ _ _ = punched paper
_ _ _ _ _ = a pepper
_ _ _ _ _ _ = a gold coin

Edit: Nationality #2 ("a rib-like form") was removed since there was an error.

First answer to include all 11 will be accepted.

Countries:

Brazil - (Brazil nuts)
Chad - (The little circles from hole punching are known as chad)
Chile - (chilli pepper - also known as a 'chile pepper')
Guinea - (Guinea coin thats made from gold - thanks @MacGyver88!!)

Nationalities:

Afghan - (Afghan rug) - thanks @El-Guest!
Dutchman - (A wood patch used in carpentry for repairs) - thanks @DarrelHoffman!
Turk - (Young turks was a political movement)
Danish - (Danish pastry)
Brit - (Young herring) - thanks @DarrelHoffman!
Polish - (As in 'polishing' - Shiny substance)
Argentine - an alternative answer for shiny substance is ‘argentine’, relating to silver.

• Country 4 could be rot13(Thvarn). – MacGyver88 Apr 29 '20 at 14:23
• @MacGyver88 ahhhh that makes a lot of sense! – Beastly Gerbil Apr 29 '20 at 14:35
• @eyl327 oh wow I was certain for polish :P I've been searching for the rest (mostly looking up a list of nationalities and typing ones that seem like they could be something else into google) but nothing yet, I'll keep searching! – Beastly Gerbil Apr 29 '20 at 16:03
• @BeastlyGerbil The woven carpet is likely this. – El-Guest Apr 29 '20 at 16:29
• @eyl327 could it perhaps be ‘Argent’? – Beastly Gerbil May 1 '20 at 8:44

For starters,

Chile

is a pepper,

a

Berber (while not exactly a nationality)

is a woven carpet

and a

Dane

is a great dog.

• The gold coins could be rot13(Oevgnaavn) but that's really a Latin country name... – Glorfindel Apr 29 '20 at 11:28
• 'Pepper' and 'great dog' are correct. I have something else in mind for woven carpet, though. – DenverCoder1 Apr 29 '20 at 16:02

• It is a valid word in SOPODS
• An informal term for Mexican nationality
• The Chicano movement

Though I don't know the five-letter word preceding it

Okay the answer probably is Turk

• The phrase is Young Turk
• Advocate is used in the sense as to support
• Young Turk is defined broadly as one advocating changes within a usually established group
• Good answer, but do you have a dictionary source for chicano being defined as "an advocate"? If so, this can be an alternate answer. – DenverCoder1 Apr 30 '20 at 16:41
• The word I am thinking of is defined on M-W with an "often not capitalized" definition. – DenverCoder1 Apr 30 '20 at 16:44
• Is the answer young turk – Rajeev Sebastian Apr 30 '20 at 22:49
• Well done. It is indeed Young Turk. – DenverCoder1 May 1 '20 at 7:37
