What I would have answered your question about my country (Australia) is largely already in Nick Nicholas’ answer to Do Australians like being Australian citizens?

But I’ll pretend I didn’t already answer it.

Many of the best things about Australia, it shares with the US, and they have a similar reason.

  • The optimism.
  • The social mobility.
  • The relative (relative) lack of sectarian and ethnic conflict.
  • The relative affluence.

In addition:

  • The professed (professed) egalitarianism.
  • The irreverence.
  • The healthy (healthy) skepticism.
  • The relaxed attitude to life.
  • The beaches.
  • Lamb.

The best things about my country (Greece) are:

  • The depth of history.
  • The lyricism of both its high and its popular culture. Which is bound up with its depth of history—and not just its Ancient history.
  • The ability of Greeks to have a good time, at any pretext.
  • The level of political engagement, and political education.
  • The theatricality of interaction between people.
  • The beaches.
  • Lamb.
