National Anthems Both Old and Non-Existant

I had to assemble a display for United Nations Day yesterday. A local had some grant funding to put on a 'festival of nations' kind of thing and thought that the history of Mandurah should be represented. That's where I came in. They had a sound system, and appropriately enough, a CD of national anthems from around the world. The CD cycled through and all was fine. Until the Soviet anthem was played. How old's this? I picked up the CD cover and it was dated, oddly, 1996. The disk also included the West German anthem.... and wait for it, the Australian national anthem. Waltzing Matilda, of course. :oP
