By anonymous• 6 years 8 months ago.

medulla normally a person likes his/her country the most so the one with most population will be the most popular..

Maybe you can ask which country you like the most besides your own..

By medulla• 6 years 8 months ago.

Where to begin, medulla? Rolling hills, dramatic mountain ranges, wild coastal areas, fabulous singing (Bryn Terfel, Shirley Bassey) breeding ground for famous actors (Richard Burton, Anthony Hopkins), some of the friendliest people in the world, a load of Qatari gas that's being imported......and me and Timebandit, of course...........

Well for me number 1 is Pakistan because how we got this country, it was impossible at that time and even today as well unless you capture other's land. Therefore we are still surviving... because it is very difficult to raise and maintain new country... We fought many wars to protect it... including the biggest Afghan-Russia war.. if today USA is the only super power because Russia lost that war. History knows and Americans historians admit as well, that we never won that war without Pakistan....

Now Pakistan became the war land for many countries because USA again wanted to remain in Asia but India, Iran and China don't want them in their region. On top of that, Pakistan holds Nuclear arsenal which is not being digested by many super powers.

So back to the question, why I like it because many people are still eating it by corruption, many countries are fighting their war in it, we are handling so many international diplomacies over there, still many countries have an eye on our nuclear arsenals, warm sea, best strategic location of harbor in the world (Gwadar), natural resources, and many things; bomb are being blasted in public places, but still many many people love it, it is still on the map, still Pakistan's existence is most important for this region, still they are fighting with their militants despite of deadly blasts ....

We still go to Pakistan for vacations... :)

Many people are giving examples of UK, USA and other developed countries... there are no comparison between them and few yrs old countries.... They all have many many years histories... UK, USA, Germany, France, and whole Europe also survived in their initial years......

I think the answer would differ based on age and nationality.

When i was in Grade school

2. USA - Because of Mc Arthur "I shall return"

3. Japan - conqueror during world war 2

But now,

1. USA - dollar

Each country is popular with specific things. There is no Complete Perfect Nation, so I think it is better if people will tell what is popular in thier own country, than telling my country is the best, because nobody is asking which country is the best as far as the natural answer will be "my country"

For example,

China - Great Wall

Hong Kong - Disney Land

Egypt - Pyramids

Qatar - The third biggest Gas field in the world

Philippines - Tarsiers

Iraq - was famous with thier Universities, Libraries, Army, Museums...etc, but not anymore after the country was destroyed in the Last War.

...etc

The above are just examples and not a list of popular things in each country.

Victory_278692

at QL....we do agree that everybody LOVES his own country and all EXPATS are patriots here in Qatar.period

If someone loves/like other countries like USA, Canada UK or UAE then just describe in brief the reasons for special preferances...say the natural abundance, make it a beautiful country, peace loving nation, rich in culture/traditions, freedom of press and dreams! economically strong, etc, etc. :)

For me India is the BEST and we are continuously striving in all the fields to sustain the popularity and richness!
