I always assumed that using "the" in such an instance was a regional thing (like "pop" vs. "soda"). I had a friend who used to talk about stores that way ("the Wal-Mart" vs. "Wal-Mart").

A friend of mine, who is from Fredonia, NY, told me that the Marx Brothers named the Duck Soup country Freedonia because they were upset by the bad reception they received when they did a show in Fredonia, NY, and wanted to make fun of the town.

Nor with the Honduras, a country in Central America.
Nor with Franconia-Springfield, a DC Metro stop.
Not to be confused with Freedonia, the fictional country in the Marx Brothers 1933 film "Duck Soup".
