hey, i'm from Estonia
-it's in Balticum as Lithuania
-guess who brought Skype to you? ;)
-it's very small country with not too friendly people
-Our country boasts the 3000-year-old crater of an iron meteorite that influenced the religions and customs of the Baltic Sea region.
-The Kunda and Pärnu settlements are older than most cradles of the European civilisation.
-Our language contains about a thousand words that date back to the last ice age
-Our capital has one of the most seamless wireless Internet networks in the world.
- about 90% of our population pay their taxes via Internet...
-The largest collection of wheel crosses in the world.
-Estonians have one of the biggest needs for personal space in the world – a good example of that being settlement density that is 4 times less compared to Denmark and 12 times less compared to The Netherlands.
-Estonia is small, both by area and population, but it has more than a hundred historical parishes, each one with its own traditional clothing.
-The joint choir of the General Song Festival has the biggest number of singers in the world
-Tallinn 2011 – for a year the Estonian capital city will hold the title of European Capital of Culture.
-Estonia ranks 3rd in the world press freedom index, following Norway and Iceland (Reporters Without Borders, 2007).
-The first daily newspaper was published in Tallinn as early as in 1675 (in England – 1702).
-Estonia is egalitarian – 51% of engineers and scientists are women (European Union average being 29%).
-The Estonian sense of humour is dark and very self-ironic reminiscent of English and Finnish humour.
-Tallinn – home of the Christmas tree. A Christmas tree on Tallinn Town Hall Square was first mentioned in 1441. The custom then was to dance around the tree and celebrate, and later burn it. Until now a small French town called Selestat has claimed itself to be the cradle of the Christmas tree, but their documents are almost a century younger (1521).

(i read that, Dennmark's flag is the oldest in the world(didn't know that) but the inspiration of the flags' design came from Estonia)
-Tallinn – Danish town. According to a legend the Danish got their national flag (Dannebrog) from here. It was thrown down to them from the skies at a decisive moment during a battle fought against Estonians on the 15th of June, 1219. The small coat of arms of Tallinn – a white cross on a red background – recalls those old days.

Actually. Skype was invented by a DANISH and a swedish entrepreneur. They later sold it to someone (i don't really know who) for over 2 billion dollars. :)

I'm from Mexico City, which is located in Mexico (stating the obvious is an specialty of mine).

As you may know we are fighting a "war against organized crime" which is at a stalemate, since most of the government is the organized crime (you know corrupt politicians and bureaucrats), election year is coming (2012) and since this a three-party system country, parties struggle for power not for people. It is known fact that almost all our former presidents and people of importance either continue ruling from the shadows or flee the country.

An anime could be made about this. . .
