New Yorkers/Amsterdamners may be in a world of there own but don't count as an independent nation yet.

It depends if you count Wales as a separate country.

More importantly do you? I thing Wales is your country but the UK is your Nation.

I go back and forth on that. I'd say Wales is a country, but the United Nations says otherwise, and who am I to argue with the U.N?  ;)

As a general rule, I'm from Wales if I'm talking to British people, but British if talking anyone else. (Unless they ask which part of England, then I kick off  ;D )

ndeed I am the demigod son of Zeus, brother to Kratos and Hercules.
I've done 12 chores in the house today and slew a spider I named Ares.

I also wear my shirts with the buttons on the back!   8)

I first read that as skirts and began to picture you as a Presidential Guard............... ;D

Someone's already got me covered, I see. :D Yeah, I'm Swedish. It surprises me that I seem to be the only Swede here. I find we're usually disproportionately numerous online.

Saurus was Finnish.
Raptori was from the UK, I believe.

And I think they still are.  ;)
Everything I wrote above is pure conjecture. I don't know what I'm talking about.

I'm a perfectionist but not very good at anything. That's why I rarely finish things.

Britain counts as a separate nation from France and New York is counted with Texas, California, and the stuff in between?

From the soon to be independent country of California... or the new state of NorCal depending on which ballot initiative wins (Calexit succession or Three Californias breaking up the state in 3 parts). It's a horror waking up everyday not knowing where I'll be living.

But they both lived in Finland. I miss them.

I was born in California, raised in New Hampshire, perhaps an hour from Boston. Been all over these United States, but have settled in Georgia and remained because my son married a meek soul who cannot leave where she's from. Uggh. I cannot imagine a worse life than to never leave your hometown. Not saying it's bad, just bad for me.

I'm British but have lived in other parts of Europe and Asia for decades. I now live in the Hills of Shiding, which sounds close enough to an epic fantasy location for any fantasy writer :)

I’ve lived in same area or near it all my life. It’s quite populated and lots of places to visit and I’m also near a major city.

I have been on lots on holidays through to different countries, off to Naples soon
