WTF is the word “Turkiye”?

In Turkey, we try to change the world to call the country Turkiye instead of Turkey. But it’s proven to be futile.

Also, it’s still close to the Turkish phonetics we’d like to have adopted. It does sound similar to Turkiye.

Best of all, it’s not Turkey, which we, for some f*ing reason (🦃)!?, feel ashamed of.
