Real Life Nationality Thread!

Postby Larthinia » Thu Feb 12, 2015 2:18 am

I feel like a thread like this should exist, where people with different nationalities should discuss various things about their nationalities, where they should explain what stereotypes bother them, and things like that. You can also discuss political things about your RL nations, and anything that is tied to RL nations and nationalities.

This, of course, will be discussed in a friendly manner, and I everybody will keep it civil, and I also hope nobody will be racist. Let's try not to get this thread locked down! Also, this is ONLY REAL LIFE, NOT NATIONSTATES RELATED.

I am also curious about other people's nationalities. I think and hope this thread will improve relationships between NSG community.

I'm a halfbreed between italians and germans.
Duca Robin Leonardo II de Cavrianesi, Duke of Alto Mantovano, Leader of the Mantoan League.
During the age of the Signorie, house Cavrianesi took over the duchy of Mantua. While following in the footsteps of the Gonzagas, the new dinasty seeked protection not only in diplomacy, but also in expansion. In a small-scale cold war between the regional powers, a compromise had been reached: The League of Alto Mantovano. A highly federalized union between the italian states, with Alto Mantovano as a Leader.

I'm just a very lazy student, I'm half German and half Italian, and interested in History. Feel free to PM me if you have anything to say.

I'm a Fujian Chinese with an amalgamate of other bloods in trace amounts. Currently living in Singapore.

I can't really trace back my line with absolute certainty, but I did find out that my paternal great-great-grandfather was a construction boss by the name of Lim Loh.

I think what you might be asking about is the person's ethnicity.

In which case, I am Chinese. That's as far as I know or care to know about my ethnicity.

Nationality is Singaporean. Current residence? Well, take a guess.

And a Italian married family in law. And a few Dutch-Swiss people.

But I am 100% dutch if you count three generations.

There will also be more Dutch than Romanians. And more Dutch than Brazilians. And more Dutch than Mexicans. And we'd give the Germans a good run for their money. And the French and Spanish will be left behind as well. If my recollection of these polls is correct.

It's something to do with language I guess. Native English speakers + people from countries where English is learnt at a young age will be much more numerous here in NS than those from countries where English is less relevant.

Not something that's really bothered me very much, TBH. I've spent almost two decades (i.e. my entire life) here, and the gum law is a non-issue, at least, to me.
