      Depends on what you mean by the German equivalent of .... (beep)...:-)
      There is
      Tschechei, used by Nazis, which si not politically correct in Germany
      nowadays, and then there is Tschechien dated back to the old Austro-Hungary
      days, which is the recommeded form. BTW, Czech Ministry of Education has
      oficcialy recommended recently "Cesko" to be used in schools. At least it�s
      short and simple, if not loved by purists.

      But OK, I �ll try to use something else. What about CR? :-)

            The horrible "Czechia" seems to be a form used mainly by our German cousins.
            It's only a short step from this to adopting their (equally awful) "handy"
            for mobile phones...

            I first encountered the word "Czechia" on address labels with the Time
            (International) magazine I subscribed to from about 1993 and I quite liked
            it.

              Sad fact: Business Central Europe (a sister magazine of the Economist)
              supposedly specialises in this region, but still sends to addresses in
              Czechoslovakia...

              Ahoj!

                  If someone from Rusko is a Rus, shouldn't someone from C<esko be a
                  C<es? A C<ech should be someone from C<es<sko, right?
