During that transition there will be an interruption in service of up to two weeks. Skullz613 is now a full administrator of XLNation. Be kind to him.

What do you think about that country.

    Hi there i've made a new game here on XLNation about what you popped up from the country.
    _____________________________________
    RULES:
    - Say first what you picked up in your head from the country from the poster before. Than say a new country.
    - Say everything what you picked up that have a link to the country. Like Finland: the language and not Germany: Holy cows.
    - Use real-countries whether its Independend or not. I don't mind. As long if its no micronation , game made countries , cities , region and .etc
    _____________________________________
    Lets start one:
    Now what you guess for my country: The Netherlands.

    Oh, Germany:
    - I do live there

    - the population is currently in a critical/crucial phase,
    on the one hand, some people apparently want to forget about the
    bad past that Germany ran through, and they want to have simple
    solutions for complex matters; for example, some Germans that have supported
    Pegida and its offshoots, they want foreigners to stay abroad or go back where
    they came from, as those Germans think that the foreigners would be a bad influence,
    that they would steal their jobs, and so on... but they are narrow-minded and forget
    for instance about the fact that any person has the possibilities to get educated in whatever age they are,
    at least in Germany. And well, if you have no education, were lazy at school, and do not try to improve
    your education, then you don't have a right to demand some privileges...
    The large majority of course is not that narrow-minded, but those right-wing organizations
    do have a lot of Pied Pipers/ Rat Catchers...

    -Beer, although consumption has decreased
    -Bread, lots of bread
    -work
    - a little bit of wealth, although this wealth is not well distributed over the population,
    but well, we do have trade surpluses of over 200 billion Euros,
    which leads to regular rebukes by the EU and our partner countries...
    and well, we do have poverty research, what the heck?
    -stable governments, we have had only 8 chancellors since 1949...
    -Autobahn
    -"soccer"/football
    -Kraftwerk, the band, and some more classical artists like Beethoven (though he made career in Vienna)
    -funny: the government determined the withdrawal of nuclear power,
    although it was a Japanese nuclear power plant that was affected by that grave tsunami in 2011.
    -Lutheran Church
    -yes, all those not so funny things:
    -genocide on the Nama and Herrero in what today is Namibia
    -Holocaust
    -WWI, WWII
    - our strong juridical, but weak moral position when it comes to reparations

    next one: Canada
