comment US Congress in WW2 Compared with other legislative bodies
I think it is illogical to compare a liberal democracy like the USA with the fascist regimes of the axis powers - very different concepts of the role of government, let alone the role of government in wartime. Did you do any research prior to asking the question?

comment Could a nobleman's land be enclosed within another noble's land?
I believe that there are several channel islands that until very recently were the personal holdings of the Queen - they are quite proud of the fact that they are not part of England. They were forced to give up their feudal relationship to the Queen by European Union laws that prohibited vassalage. So yes, the crown could and did hold lands that were not enfeoffed.

comment How did IKEA design evolve?
The question gets periodically re-examined in meta; if you desire to change it, I think that is the right place to start. I think this question could be within scope with relatively minor edits; I will make an attempt.
