Germany BBC poll: Germany most popular country in the world

Germany is the most positively viewed nation in the world in this year's annual Country Ratings Poll for the BBC World Service.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-22624104

Interesting that Greece viewed Germany in a worse light than others. Not surprised at Canada being second equal - but with the UK? The Olympics seemed to have helped us. I am also not surprised that China has fallen in popularity, but surprised that Japan, top last year in the positive influence, has fared almost as badly.

Pfff. All of you other lesser nations are just jealous.

Rebonia is objectively the greatest nation on earth! At only 990 sq ft, we pack quality over quantity into our borders.

I guess if you want to be popular, you need to try advocating for economic theories that have been repeatedly shown to be wrong.
