    There's a simple solution - move to Tjele, Denmark! :P – Moshe Nov 15 '11 at 1:06

    They're practically right next to each other, I can see how the algorithm could get tripped up. Or maybe Denmark has established an exclave in Illinois? – jonsca Nov 15 '11 at 3:16

    This old bug was clearly fixed at some point in the last (almost) 3 years. – Alex Warren Aug 1 '14 at 11:19

    yes, fixed shortly after I posted this back then. – Tom Conder Mar 31 at 18:54
  • There is a postal/ZIP code, 8830, with the name Tjele, but not an actual place called that, except for the manor from which other place names in that area have been derived, like the municipality that ceased to exist before Stack Overflow was born. – P.Mort. - forgot Clay Shirky_q Apr 1 at 23:37

It's fixed. They fixed the error not too long after I posted this.
