[POLL] Where are you from?

For the purpose of the poll, use the above map. I know the regions listed and defined by the map are arbitrary (especially with the smaller islands), but it was the best I could throw together.

So I've realised that the NS community come from a variety of different backgrounds across the world, and I was interested to see what kind of proportions we had on this site.

For privacy sake, don't tell your exact location, but perhaps you could even say which country you're from below, if you want.

I'm from the region of Oceania.
