    My country is sweden.

    *Is the people nice?
    - Yeah, well most of it. The girls are awesome, we got people who participate in many sorts of charity orginisations.
    We also have douchebags, rich people, poor people, criminals (mostly south sweden unfourtionaly), kind people and evil people. Just like every other country!
    It's sad too how people class eachother so much here in mind of what people earn, looks and education. I understand that you rank and talk to people
    in different classes but in Sweden it's getting out of hand. It's hard to explain as you (maybe) not live here, but I really hope you get my point!

    *How is the politics?
    - Well, im actually not that in-to politics. Today, we got a really sharp guy with great questions about the country, and he's doing really well.
    The country has been better since. This year though, we got LOTS of talking around the media about a politican party named Sweden Democrats.
    They are extreme racist but is still hiding it, although everyone knows it. Sad thing is that they do SO many misstakes and still are in the top 3 parties in Sweden.
    Which is sad, it describes how many rednecks we really do have in Sweden.

    *Economy?
    - The economy is great. We got lots of jobs but still not enough though. People in sweden (mostly around the youths) are unemployed and therefore needs to study until they are 23-25
    to get a proper job and education. The taxes are okay for those who has a high salary, and okay for those who is in the middle-low class. As the "left" parties ruled Sweden for 8 years it's alot of difference
    as the low-middle class had ALOT of lower taxes when you compare to the high-class.

    *Famous people?
    - Ah.. Is this the part when I should brag? Nah im kidding, but we got alot!
    We mostly have famous people in the music branch, but still lots of known people in many other things. IKEA founder: Ingmar Kamprad, Zlatan, Peter Forsberg, In Flames,
    Alfred Nobel, HeatoN, Björn Borg, Carl von Liné. I can go on forever!

    *Music?
    What is the most unknown genre in music for Sweden that other countries don't know? Probably "dansband", the definition of this is "dance-band",
    which can sound pretty cool, but it's embarrasing to listen to. It's like music that rednecks and old people dance to. It's extremely Swedish...
    We have our dear ABBA. Wow, amazing how we actually growed as a country when they had they breakthrough in the 70's!

    We got amazing DJ's too. Aviici, Adrian Lux, John De Sohn, Nause, Swedish House Mafia, Rebecca & Fiona,Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Axwell, Eric Prydz, Basshunter.
    --------
    This is some stuff about my country and why I love it but at the same time dislikes it.

    And no, we don't have polarbears walking around the streets.

    The people are nice, sometimes even trespassing the "personal boundaries"
    Politics are s#%!, there's only two sides and both suck equally
    The economy was OK (at most) 'til a year ago when the president died, and everything went downhill. Basics products like milk, sugar, flour and even soap, shampoo and razors are super hard to obtain, since most markets are half empty and the ones that have those products have f#"%ing long lines of people waiting since the last day or something.

    Ahh Canada! I always wanted to go there.

    I've been on the exotic countries in my teenage years, but I've always wanted to go to countries like USA, Canda, Germany, Netherlands and Ice Land (actually going to Ice Land later this year!!!!).

    I haven't red alot about Canada but this made me interested!
    Landscapes... God I couldn't be more excited! Too bad it's mostly forest here in the south/middle Sweden. Going to the north sometimes and explore!
    Meh, don't complain! Although JB is not my taste he still made a great career of his music, but I'm not sure if you should be proud though hehe...
    And btw, Sweden has better hockey players ;)

    @jeremy96x
    Venezuela...
    Glad to hear that the people are nice atleast ;)!
    I feel like many countries got problem with the politics, which causes lot's of problems in general (duh).
    Tradical, really. Urgh, seems like a rough time for your country, thank you for letting me learn, buddy!

    @Patel
    America! Love to hear that, and ofcourse we can all notice. You're moving forward fast and it's great for the world.
    I wish that I read more about the politics in USA as they seem really interesting, especially when Obama started to take care of the deal.
    As you said, all countries have it! Thanks

    @abhi007
    India. Pretty sad that you have to say that, would you mind motivate it? As I wrote before, Im not very into the politics, but who dies of learning?

    Modern democracy. Full of opportunities. Great women. Great music. Good(ish) TV. Rich history. Poor public transport. No decent beer. Cost of living increasing (especially housing). Youth becoming corrupt in certain areas. "Benefits" culture running rampant. Absolute terrible weather most of the time.

    Australia wins my heart.... :D

    Agreed! Though luckily you can get Fosters or Stella or pretty much anything from most bars these days.

    And mine is... Finland. So F you OP :p

    Loving the lakes. The land of a thousand lakes is thankfully not a joke, and I can just lay down in the sand at our summer house, enjoying the sun and the water.

    Politics is fine now since they got that jackass Soini under control, and I think Stubb is doing a fine job as our new PM, though he did way better as the foreign minister, just saying :D

    Women here are okay, some beautiful, some horrible and everything in between. Still, I prefer Swedish women ;) They do have a lot worse temper at times though... And mange to be more of the bimbo sort of type compared to the Finnish women.

    So just how I like them, stupidly easy. And stupid. Jk, Swedish women are great! (Yes, I have lived in Sweden for like four years, how did you guess?)

    The Finnish TV is still the same old boring mostly, but the films they are starting to put out here are already on their way to being half decent which is nice.

    So what I love the most about Finland is definitely not the bloody taxes, but the weather, I love downhill skiing as well so snow is good. What is also nice is the equality here. Sure, there are rich people and poor people, but our social services are doing a decent job at keeping everyone alive and happy. Free health services is also great.

    Oh and it's sort of normal here for those who don't become plumbers or something to study until they are like 23-25, depending on how long you are going to stay in the army etc.

    I've lived in Finland, Sweden and the UK, and I still prefer Finland, but that's mostly because it's my 'home'. Though I currently study in the UK and spend half the summers at my uncle's in Stockholm so :D

    Hungary

    loving the most: brunettes, music festivals in the summer, traditional Hungarian dishes & pálinka of course :)

    i don't give a rats ass about politics, however we're drifting towards a soft dictatorship with this clown (=our president) behind the wheel, which is no good, economy is shit (avg salary is 1/3, 1/4 of a Western EU salary when the prices of most things are very close or the same), others say we're friendly, i wouldn't say so, at least not with each other, maybe with the tourists, famous people: don't really care about this either, if interested, wiki has all the answers

    France

    Who said cheese & wine ? Indeed ! I also love landscape diversities and uniqueness in France.
    Politics : that's all about Europe. We're selling our ass to US since De Gaulle.
    Economy : 0% economy growth for 6 months now
    Music : Lot of nice underground band for all genres.

    @HoNeYBiRD : I really loved travelling Hungary, very nice landscapes, places and people. Czech Republic is also a very nice country, waiting for someone to testify.

    I am also Swedish, though these are my opinions.


    Pros:
    ALMOST free healthcare.
    Free education.
    Hot girls.

    Cons:
    Freaking high taxes.
    Terrible music.
    Illegal to purchase houses and rent them for PROFIT.
    Our "law" system sucks.

    and i really loved travelling France :), i was there a couple of times, Paris, the castles of the Loire valley, Southern France/Provence, all really are beautiful places
    i can really imagine myself living in Nice for instance or in a smaller city close to Monte Carlo
    my sister decided to move to France a few years ago and it seems she's staying maybe for good, so i guess, i'll continue visiting France pretty frequently :)
    Czech Republic is also nice, i was there only once, in Prague, it was love at first sight

    Australian here.

    Pros:
    Good weather in most places.
    Huge variety in landscapes/scenery. In one country we have stunning beaches, rainforests, dessert/outback, snow mountains, cities, beautiful countrysides.
    Excellent rates of pay for even the most basic jobs (more than $20hr for working in a supermarket or bar). Factory workers can receive up to $25-$30hr.
    Nice people mostly.
    Good (free) healthcare.
    Good looking girls.

    Cons:
    Long distance to fly to any other country - expensive.
    Long distance to drive to other capital cities. From Adelaide to Perth will take about 29 hours. Melbourne to Brisbane 19 hours.
    Bad politicians.
    Really bad media - similar to Fox news.
    Can be extremely hot in summer in some places - one of the capital cities, Adelaide, had something like 10 days in a row over 45 degrees Celsius (114F) last summer.
    Lots of people on benefits who don't need to be.
    Ridiculous priced housing - mainly close to Sydney and Melbourne.

    I'm sure there's more pros and cons, maybe some other Aussies can give some more.
