    China would be a Bee Hive in my opinion. The entire hive colony, not just one bee. There are tons of people who are always working. The guard bees are the world's largest military who will kill anyone who dissents, and the queen would be the ruling party.

    India, on the other hand, would be a Tiger. It's fast and deadly (hey! It's called and Asian Tiger for a reason! :lol: ) and can blend in quite well (unless the Indian in question is a fob)

    (Note: I am Indian, but 2nd-generation immigrant to US)

    And like the lions in Civ IV, attacking everything in sight as compensation for not being part of the mainstream any more. Since 2005 I don't think we've even had a government or opposition worthy of the name :(. Read any of the AOL or eBay "off-topic"/news forums and you will see a lot of people like your lion - full of "we could take down parliament any day we like" but without the guts to form a coherent alternative to the powers that be.

    I would however also go for a sleepy old owl (barn owls are shyest so maybe that would be appropriate). Perhaps we are not active that much at the moment, but if we did ever wake up, we could probably take a few people's faces off if directly threatened.

    Well, traditionally Switzerland recognizes itself as a Cow... How embarassing as it may be. (I can't stand the cowbells that appear everywhere when there is a Swiss celebration, for example a football match...)

    My home city and region nevertheless has a Basilic as the flag animal which is quite a bit more impressing.... ;)

    And owls are creatures of the night, who do their dirty work out of sight. A bit like how the UK tries harder than the US to find diplomatic solutions to its problems, unseen by the general population.

    What exactly do you mean. I looked the English words up on leo and it seems they are right. If you were referring to the content, just imagine it as a European version of rednexs and country... ;)
