10 Ways to Know if Your Country is A-OK

From time to time, we all probably need to sit back and wonder whether the country we choose to inhabit is on the right path. Many of ours are not. A few are. Here’s a simple checklist to see if you’re country is ready to be considered the next best thing since pickled garlic:

  • The UN has not established an acronym for a mission in your country
  • Your currency is pegged to (or is) the Euro
  • Your currency is not pegged to (or isn’t) the US Dollar
  • There are commercial air flights to your capital
  • Your national airline is not bankrupt and/or on the EU no-fly list
  • The president of your country was elected democratically, yet does not have his own weekly television and/or radio show
  • Your national cuisine is not claimed by another country
  • Western Media only reports about train delays, food, and tourism in your country
  • Sascha Baron Cohen’s stereotypes of your country’s citizens can actually be seen in your country
