    What part of the world do you live in? Or what area of the world have you lived in the most and identify with the most?

    Just curious.

    The Phillipines were a tough one, but they're more like the other Pacific Islanders than East Asia or South Asia, even if they're not too similar to Australia or New Zealand.

    I could only make 10 categories :p

    Why not make Canada and the US one then?

    I thought of a British Commonwealth option, to include Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the UK together. Maybe I should have done that? But the Phillipines have a lot in common with the other Pacific island nation-states, which are usually included with Australia and New Zealand.

    But I knew there's a lot of people from the United States here, so I basically want to see how many people here aren't from the United States, and what part of the world they're from then.

    Other hard countries/regions to categorize were: Indonesia, Southeast Asia, Turkey, North Africa, Southeast Europe, the Guyana's, Central Asia, the Caucasus, Somalia, Israel, Iran, and Afghanistan.

    South. East. Asia?

    like, if you would put Singapore, Malayisa and Indonesia in SE Asia, the Philippines goes there too.

    I live in my own little world, thank you very much.

    Turkey and Russia are in Europe. :-B
  11. Darth Guy Force Ghost

    Turkey only has a small part in Europe. The Anatolian peninsula is part of Asia. But I agree that although the majority of its landmass is in Asia, Russia's political and cultural centers are in Europe and it's much more "European" than "Asian" in character.

    Although Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands are U.S. Col- I mean, territories, they're smack dab in the middle of the Caribbean, far removed (in most ways than just geographically) from the continental US. Same thing with the Pacific possesions. So in a sense, piling the territories together (or even Hawaii) with the North American mainland is somewhat..misleading? Inaccurate?

    Dave, everyone already knows you're from Mexico.
  17. Ghost Jedi Grand Master

    Yeah, I could do that next time.

    The Phillipines were under Spanish and American influence for a while too, still under American influence even now. So culturally they're not too alien to Australia/New Zealand, not more than the other Pacific nations composed mostly of natives anyways.

    What it then make sense to put Canada, Australia, and New Zealand together? Should the UK and US be included in that category too?

    Yeah, but Turkish culture is closer to the Middle East it ruled over for centuries in the Ottoman Empire.

    Russia would make sense in Europe, along with the former Soviet Republics of Eastern Europe. But then what to do with the Caucasus (Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan) and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan)? It's simpler to group the former Soviet Union together.

    But they're still citizens of the United States. I didn't want to split up the different regions within countries too, just group the countries together.

    The U.S. neocons are working on it.
  19. JackG Jedi Grand Master

    Yeah, I can't agree with that. As a citizen of Australia and a visitor to the Philippines, I don't think that's the case at all.
