Well, I think it's a silly thing to argue about since the most 
important part is the ordering. The ability to have duplicates kinda 
just falls out of that. But, here goes, anyways. Two strings, presented 
to the user, with the same meaning. You wouldn't determine which was 
chosen, what with them having the same meaning and all.

This example has two sets of duplicate keys, just for extra points. 
United States of America shows up in the alphabetized list, and in a 
separate section at the top. The blank entry shows up first, and 
between the initial countries and the rest.

Choose your Country:

   USA [United States of America]

   United Kingdom
   United States of America
