    Because Every Country is the Best at Something...

    I got CCTV. In fact there is about 4.2million CCTV cameras in the UK, thats one camera for every 15 people.

    So whats your country best in the world at?


    I think Iceland's should be "Number of Flights Grounded"

    Afghanistan: Opium, Does this explain the war!?

    I think this is a easy one for us

    We probably have the best bullfighters and the best bullfights all over the world

    However, It is not a thing to be proud of.
    I wish they will be banned

    The UK also arguably has the most elite fighting force in the world. The SAS/SBS.

    The USA has something no other country on Earth can come close to matching: ground-based freight transportation. Thanks to the extensive railroad network and the Interstate Highway System, no other country can move more freight with such speed and efficiency as the USA.

    A full year off of work with pay at 80% salary or alternatively ten months off at 100% salary for new mothers.

    You have to have been working for a certain amount of time prior to the birth to earn the right to do this, but still...it's a great system.

    I'm not going to be all cynical and stuff.

    For us I think it's the arts. For such a small country we produce an enormous amount of top actors, musicians, and writers.

    But we totally suck at most things :p

    American football? We're the best at that because almost no one else plays it.

    Do you live in Saudi Arabia?

    You produced Coldplay. Your country fails.

    I don't care if you gave us The Beatles, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Muse, Oasis, Led Zeppelin and Queen. You gave us Coldplay, and that is an unforgivable act, just like the world will never forgive Canada for Nickelback and Avril Lavigne :p

    ****, how could I forget Justin Bieber in the list? I even think we could forgive Nickelback and Avril if they take back Justin.
