Exactly what the title says! I got discussing this with a few people the other day and I'd be interested to see what others say. I think for the purpose of this discussion that you would live in said country/nationality and be immersed in their culture, not simply I'm such n such, living in so n so.

I'll go 1st. I'm Scottish but if I could be any other nationality I would be American or Italian.

American
because as cultured as I would like to make out that I am, I would like to still live in an English speaking country. I like their sense of national pride. It's cities are so diverse that I would relish the opportunity to be a part of one of them. They do holidays the way holidays should be done!

Italian
Again they have a huge sense of national pride, a real passion for food, and football. Such a scenic country. but i think the main reason is food.

over to you guys?

Finland, I love everything I know about that country. It looks so beautiful there too.

I am an American, and I have yet to see holidays done as they are on T.V. I am sure there are some places that go all out, I just have never lived in such a location. I keep getting hit with bad luck no matter where I live when it comes to the 4th of July. Doesn't anyone celebrate with a decent fire works show?

I'm going to have to go off world here and say Pleiadian or Orionian.
If they are crowded and stupid like this planet, then I've got to go pick
my own race somewhere else ... be a race of one. A metaphysical race of one.

Something like that.... I don't know
