    Easter country is the land that the Easter Bunny rules, where Jesus is cought up in stasis as he hangs on the cross dying nonstop for all eternity never reaching death, and therefor never absolving humanity from original sin.

    So basicaly it is a place full of sinners, like Las Vegas only easter.

    Even tho you horribly mispelled it, I chose this as my favorite country.

    There`s an old saying: Screw a country that has no Bosnia :)

    Yes I know that, I never learnt how to spell Herzgornia correctly:(

    Warpus, although I dont want to debate it. Greece is eastern in Historic Sense.

    The Byzantium and then Ottoman Empires had always been seen by Europe as the East. Greece who belong to the two empires are fit to be Eastern. Religion was the main reason that Greece was seen as Eastern.

    The votes of the Swedes on the board for starters. And as said, a bunch of Canadians for the hockey. A few odd votes from elsewhere. Or so I'm guessing.

    My vote goes to Croatia. They have the maritime sea + I feel like at home amongst Croatian people (I know plenty living in Vienna). 2nd would be Greece, but for me Greek people (I had 3 short time co-workers at university) are too alien to get connected to easily.

    About Finland getting a lot of votes.

    Obviously it is seen as a western country by a lot of voters, and because westerners identify with it and have high thoughts of themselves, and easterners often look up to western countries as role models, therefor Finland got a lot of votes.

    This is what you get if you draw the line with aestethic guidelines in stead of of using parameters important for the question at hand.

    Not that Finland isn't a greate country, but it should have competed in the western category, the country has a clearly unfair advantage in the eastern. category

    Oh yes, westerners also often do not know enough about eastern countries to make a good judgement.

    Also Slovenia and the Chech Republik did obviously not have a chance in the western category, whilst they would have had much higher numbers in the eastern.

    Yeah! These polls are biased since the votes are counted automatically, we can't exercise good old Eastern-European democracy.

    I guess Finland leads because it's clear and obvious winner in policies.

    Im gonna go with Greece. Just cause I like it.

    I mean, I would go with the Ukraine, cause I think colour tinged revolutions are probably quite exciting. Or Turkey, cause of the fascinatin' history.

    But I just like Greek quirks.

    And Finlands too boring, safe, to be really interesting Imo.
