I have assigned 198 countries a number. The countries I've chosen are the 193 members of the UN plus those recognised by at least 20 UN members. Each week I will pick a country using a random number generator and we will discuss that country.




Country of the Week for week 19: Kingdom of Spain

Population: 46M

Define "relevant". The next time you eat olives, you should overthink your statement.

It is irrelevant, the most irrelevant country on Earth, the second one is Austria.

And I hate olives, the only thing I like about Spain is its Jamon and Jabugo. Nothing else.

After Britian, Spain was the biggest empire to grace this planet.

In what way is Spain irrelevant, Angry?

Correction: Spain used to be relevant, but it is no longer.

And France is more relevant? I doubt that.

At one point or another controlled most of the Americas, the Iberian Peninsula, modern-day Belgium, Naples, parts of Morroco and Equitorial Guinea.

France is not relevant either, but Spain is even more irrelevant. It is a country that will disappear in the near future. Thanks Francisco Franco for this.

Spain and France are both relevant, deal with it.

Cata I don't think you realise how strong the Catalan secessionist movement is. Putting beside my joke-blind-faith-type-thing, Catalonia would easily win a referendum. Even if Scotland had only Scots vote in the referendum, it'd be barely over 50%. Catalonia could clear 70%+.

Some provinces like Gipuzkoa and big cities such as San Sebastian/Donosti are led by Bildu a pro independence party. The rest are with PNV: Basque Nationalist Party, not independentist but nationalist, conventional Spanish parties such as PSOE or PP have almost no votes in Euskadi.

I support Basque independence over Scottish and Catalonian because Athletic Bilbao means they would have an OP football team.

Even Navarre, the most conservative and pro Spanish Region (they never wanted as for now to join the Basque Community of Euskadi) has finally fallen to the Basque parties during the 2015 elections, the region and the capital (Pamplona) are now led by the Abertzales (Basquist politicians).

Yes, but Barcelona imports players - Messi, Neymar, Suarez, Rakitic, Bravo, etc. Bilbao only recruits Basques, meaning they could all play for the Basque national team.

yes general, and we do have a national team, Euskal Selekzioa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basque_Country_national_football_team

The Basque team used to have Xabi Alonso, Bixente Lizarazu and even Didier Deschamps, all of them are World Champions sadly with the Colonial Powers of France and Spain :(
