Brilliant; world peace would probably break out if these countries weaved these lines into their national anthems. (Title tweak suggestion: What These Countries Haven't Said But Damn Well Should)

I guess I'm more in tune with the wonderful anthem that was used at the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

Our relationship with our neighbour, the UK are unproblemativally doesn't make sense grammatically or at all - it's Northern Ireland that has had some troubles and that is a different country to Ireland. Northern Ireland is PART of the UK and is not our neighbour! Or at least part of GB. You can't refer to 'Northern Ireland' as 'Ireland'.

The Irish (Rep. of Ireland) don‘t like the British mainly due to British suppression in the past, which eventually led to the Troubles. Their relations have never been unproblematically, I mean Michael Higgins was the first Irish president to visit the U.K. and that was four years ago! It‘s obvious that N. Ireland is part of the U.K. but the Republic of Ireland and the U.K. have special, sometimes problematic relations.

I agree. Just change unproblematically to unproblematic. That is the correct spelling here.

It's not controversial when it's clear that you're having a laugh and pointing out each country's worst nightmare in a funny way :)

Hate to tell you but those of us who know about the Emu War think it is hilarious and are more than happy to tell people about it.

We boast about it.

We revel in it.

No English-speaking nation would say "Our relations with our neighbor, the U.K., are unproblematically". For Ireland to be the correct answer, the statement would have to be, "Our relations with our neighbor, the U.K., are unproblematic." Therefore, I submit that the correct answer to this question is Spain.

Maybe I'm missing the point, but while I agree that as it is any English-speaking nation should work since they would never say said statement, Spain isn't an English-speaking nation.

Amazing quiz that should absolutely get featured, but also there is a grammatical error in one of the questions: "unproblematically" should be "unproblematic".
