Palatinate
Explanation:
Pfalz - Palatinate, and Rheinland-Pfalz (one of the German Länder) - Rhineland-Palatinate (also Rhenish Palatinate)

No other contexts that I'm aware of. You'll get a wealth of hits (historical, cultural, etc.) by simply searching on Palatinate. (Note though, that it's P-a-latinate, not Platinate as in your query, but that might have been a simple typo.) HTH
