The State I like very much is Germany. I think it's so clean and everything seems to be perfect.

many parts of europe have great aspects. it depends what you look for.
-if you want to have a job where u can be a lazy bum, get paid tons with 14 paychecks and 6 weeks paid vacations, move to germany.
-if you want to enjoy a relaxed life with quality nightlife, move to madrid or barcelona.
-if you want to live in a town that has horrible weather, ancient transportation infrastructure, unreal rents for crappy rooms and is full of idiots, you gotta move to london
-if you want to make alot of money and can be self responsible go live in the new eu states
-or if you arent a geek you should do what makes sense and move around frequently

One more vote for Italy!

I've seen very little of the country (err... Venice and the countryside along the railway track there  Big grin ), but it's got that certain almost hstorical appeal to Germans that lives on till today.

Komm ein bisschen mit

Having been to all the countries in Europe several times (not just the EU members) I must say that my favorites are France and Ireland among the members and Switzerland and Andorra among the non-members. I do not like my own much at all, it is time to move  Crying

@f.pier

are you by any chance part of the "europeans to antarctica" movement due to the lack of a eu flag?  Smile  Smile

Germany seems clean, and most of the German people I've met are very very nice and friendly !

My vote has to go for Ireland.

Why? Becasue it's so much like Scotland it's unbelieveable - how could anyone not love it? Great Guinness, great people, fabulous social atmosphere....

And who couldn't love a country like that?  Laugh out loud

Count me in for France.  Big thumbs up

I have visited many regions of this wonderful country - Normandie, Charente-Maritime, Aquitaine, Riviera, Bretagne almost once a year ever since I was a very young kid, and totally fell in love with Paris the first time I came there in 1996.
Since then, I have been going back to Paris at least thrice every year - the food, the lifestyle, people (Ah, les jeunes filles!)... yep, France is definitely my favorite place!  Love Next trips are coming up in early May and August.  Smile

Spain comes in at a close second place - I just glad that our family owns an appartment in beautiful Andalucia, so I can go and spend some quality time in southern Spain whenever I want - like for example in two weeks.  Big thumbs up

It depends really. My favourite city is Paris - it's just so beautiful and refined but my favourite country would be (and I say this grudgingly as an Englishman) Germany because it has a bit of everything - bustling cities, a major business centre, wonderful countryside, top beer (and as a Brit this is a must!) and an intelligent, friendly population. And they even let us beat them at football recently, which just swung my vote ahead of France (who knows, maybe at Euro 2004 if we beat 'Les Bleus' France will regain top spot Big grin) I have never been that much of a fan of Ireland purely because I find it almost identical to the UK so it loses out on the 'exotic' category.


I used to think the brain is the most fascinating part of my body. But, hey, who is telling me that?

Not in the american sense... they are, of course, states and can be addressed as such. But they´re still nation states, and sovereign except in the aspects they´ve agreed to pool in the EU. Many EU countries have regional states (like, for instance the german Länder), so the distinctions should remain clear.

Outside the US, independent countries are commonly referred to as states. To make things more complicated, the term "nation" is often used to designate an ethnic group or nationality, regardless of its political status, as in, say, "the Basque nation." In everyday American speech, of course, the term "state" most often means an internal entity, while "nation" tends to mean an independent country.
