    The District of Columbia vs Moscow.

    Sparta vs Athens is the only interesting other one. Of course Thebans were an issue.

    Laconia (commonly known as Sparta, its capital) was not a city state.

      Sparta is the city, Laconia is the nearby region. I'm from the south, nobody would say they are Appalachian as a response to where we are from, but we would describe our home as Appalachia.

        The official name of the state was always Laconia.

          They're interchangeably referred to as Spartans or Laconians by others. Sparta is by far the more common in both Greek and Latin. The L on the shield is thematic, a motif recalling the geographic landscape, use of imagery invocation.

          >"Lacedaemonia" was not in general use during the classical period and before. It does occur in Greek as an equivalent of Laconia and Messenia during the Roman and early Byzantine periods, mostly in ethnographers and lexica of place names.

            >The ancient Greeks used one of three words to refer to the Spartan city-state and its location. First, "Sparta" refers primarily to the main cluster of settlements in the valley of the Eurotas River.[14] The second word, "Lacedaemon" (Λακεδαίμων),[15] was often used as an adjective and is the name referenced in the works of Homer and the historians Herodotus and Thucydides. The third term, "Laconice" (Λακωνική), referred to the immediate area around the town of Sparta, the plateau east of the Taygetos mountains,[16] and sometimes to all the regions under direct Spartan control, including Messenia.

            >In classical Greece, Laconia was Spartan territory but from the 4th century BC onward Sparta lost control of various ports, towns and areas.[15][16] From the mid-2nd century BC until 395 AD, Laconia was a part of the Roman Empire.

            >Unable to produce a male heir, King Eurotas bequeathed the kingdom to Lacedaemon who then renamed the STATE after his wife,[1] SPARTA, who was also his (Eurotas's )niece

            Let's look at wikipedias source for that statement, shall we?
            >Having no male issue, he left the kingdom to Lacedaemon, whose mother was Taygete, after whom the mountain was named, while according to report his father was none other than Zeus. Lacedaemon was wedded to Sparta, a daughter of Eurotas. When he came to the throne, he first changed the names of the land and its inhabitants, calling them after himself, and next he founded and named after his wife a city, which even down to our own day has been called Sparta.
            I'm right, you're wrong.

            It looks like you changed your argument to suggest that the two terms are interchangeable, politically. Did you mean to move your goalpost?

            They weren't interchangeable, Sparta was the city and Laconia was the kingdom.

            And yet we have all already agreed that the Roman empire, a tad bit larger than Laconia, is a city state. I was not joking either when I said that the US is the city state of Columbia.

            I haven't. In a city state everything revolves around the capital city, and that wasn't the case in Laconia or in the Roman Empire (except during the Principate I guess) and it isn't the case in the US today.
