In conversation with Zenlan in the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion channel, they shared this link with the comment: "I threw up this little demo on the back of a talk by GDS about government registers, how to get the correct country name given someone's date of birth..."

We don't currently ask an individual's country of birth, but it's worth noting (and perhaps calling out somewhere) that as place names and boundaries change, it would be ideal to allow for an inclusive way to identify that place.

This also includes indigenous peoples who's land has been colonized. They may prefer to refer to their places using un-colonized place/territory names.
