That would be Republic of Azerbaijan, formerly Soviet-Socialist, etc.

How would you say: "It's the div!"

As in: Oh no/oops/yikes/get that thing away from me.

And on the off chance that somebody actually knows this one, thanks in advance! :D

P.S. For anybody who doesn't know and is just curious, a div is a folk-tale demon--from what I understand of it, comparable to an ogre.

Like a diabel (I think I spelled that right) in Polish?

And you might try the Word Reference Forums, which is where I always send folks...

Thanks, I'll check that out. :)

Here's a link to a story featuring one. Once you get past the introduction on children's folklore, it's really cute.
