Scotland - located above England.
Contrary to popular belief that it was England
that took over Scotland, it was the other way around. James I of England was originally James VI of Scotland, Mary Queen of Scots son. When Elizabeth I died without an heir, her only living relative, James VI, became King of England, and thus united the two countries.
Scotland has a rich heritage coming from the Picts, the Celts, the Vikings, the Romans etc. Surprisingly to some, not all Scots have ginger hair. In fact, gingers (myself included) are a dying breed.
We have an excellent education system, which is much easier to understand how it works than the English system. Start school aged 4/5, leave aged 17/18 after 7 years at Primary and 6 years at secondary. We have one of the world's best universities, handily located on the East Neuk of Fife in scenic St. Andrew's, which unfortunately is becoming polluted with English toffs who are unnecessarily keen to escape top-up fees and want to go to St. Andrew's. YOU ARE RICH. YOU DON'T NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MONEY!
Excellent football, with the best team in Scotland being Glasgow Celtic
Football Club, despite the poor national record, although the ladies side is promising.
Scotland is a very patriotic country, and does not in fact harbour IRA supporters. It also appears as though England and the English are determined to squash our Scottishness, as whenever we do something well, we become British, but English people doing well retain their national identity. An excellent example of this is with Andrew Murray the tennis star from Dunblane who was consistantly referred to as British, yet Henman is English.
The Scottish Government is doing well, after a 300 year absence. Despite the Labour party technically being in power, at least we don't have Tony Blair and the recent loss of a "safe Labour" seat in Dunfermline and East Fife to the Lib Dems shows that Labour is out. Once New Labour are ejected from power, either the Lib Dems or the SNP should gain power. The SNP have very admirable aims, as Scotland's independance is reluctant as if we weren't joined with England, who would there be to fight in Iraq.
Also home to some of the funniest people and great actors and past inventors.
