I seriously doubt that you ever heard of it and the nomination sounds just like the name for a strange country from a marx brothers production... Well, I'm from Slovenia.

well, my country of residence is going to win the worldcup after a few stirling victories over countries that prefer spelling contests. where are they holding the word cup by the way, my neice likes spelling bees....

other than that i am in my more normal moments a citizen from the great state of Alabama, CSA.... we unfortunatley do not play soccer there much, we prefer shooting stuff or fishin'....

USA, Michigan.
That's where real men play real football, not that girl game, with almost 2 hours of running back and forth and then cheering the great victory of 1:0 by group kissing and baring bras.

When we win, it is something like 49:27!

Then we grill hamburgers , drink beer and gain another 5 pounds in weight.

I eat Mamaliga, drink Tuica and, fully tanked I attempt to dance the Hora, all the time hoping "Dracula" won't crash the party
In my adopted country I pray for the Maple Leafs and drink Steam Whistle beer.

I was born an Okie but visited about 28 countries by the time I was 10 years old. Now I reside in the suburbs of Washington DC, in the nuclear free zone of Takoma Park.

I am from Portugal, a nine hundred years old, tiny little nation, situated in the Iberian Peninsula. So little and ignored that, when i once travelled to a certain civilized European Country, a local girl asked me why i, being a Portuguese, didn't have curly hair ! Some years after, a studious friend of mine told me i had a Phoenician fascies. Apparently the Phoenicians used to come ashore, when they passed by my sea coast home town, on their route up north. But apparently those peoples didn't have a curly hair.

I am from Denmark, the country from where the charter tourism started. The Danes sailed to Ireland, England and many other countries to visit. Peaceful as they were, they only defended themselves when being attacked.
Now I live in a country far more south, with a lot of mountains, but also here are traces of the early Norse. In a chapel at the Wierwaldstettersee there is an inscription in runes, and the Norse were of course also life guards in Constantinople, which can be seen there.

Forza Azzurri!

My wife's Italian, but I did live there for 7 years.

Takoma Park is a nuclear free zone? How ... symbolic. And futile, of course.

I am from the island state at the bottom of Australia, Tasmania, home of the Tasmanian Devil much beloved of cartoonists. Next stop south is Antarctica. This place was settled by the British colonists a bit over 200 years ago, but for at least 50,000 years before that it was home to the indigenous Australians. So we have some recent history and some ancient history.

I live in Quebec, the french province of Canada where there is still endless forests... and winters. We eat "pâté chinois" and "tourtière", and are serious hockey fans.
Good think, it is a little bit more hot these days (spring time) !

Zan
