I'll do two.

US (This is kinda hard considering I've only been up and down the east coast):
Pros
-gas is cheap compared to other places
-Newegg can ship to me
-We get game consoles and games usually before EU does
Cons
-Other countries hate us
-Ford still refuses to bring over the new C1 Focus, all we get is a poorly ugly facelifted crap bucket car! EU has all the cool cars!

Alabama:
Pros
-Climate is pretty good in 2 seasons, but it's hot and humid in summer and way cold in winter sometimes
-No emissions laws or anything else to keep me from modding!
-Holy crap, good southern food!
-Southern hospitality, almost everyone is nice here
-Great beaches just to the south
-Auburn University! Heck yes.
Cons
-When it's summer and winter
-Everyone else thinks you are automatically stupid if you live here (2nd worst education systems, anyone? Not sure if that # is current)
-Everyone thinks you automatically wear overalls without a shirt, chew on a straw, wear a straw hat, and shoot critters off your back porch
-Basically everyone thinks you're automatically a redneck
-Not very scenic, it's flat unless you go up north
-No really big cities, so you don't get that element
-No cool car stealerships!
-No really cool landmarks

EDIT: This list inspired me to update my signature. Thanks.

Yea AL is like 48, and GA is like 49 I don't know who is 50 in education.

I came to a military school and it was a much bigger learning experience.

Default Re: Your Country

Isle of Wight, but born in Portsmouth, just across the Solent.

For;
Peaceful, away from the mainland rat race.

Beautiful countryside.

Village life is good, very friendly people, no street lights.

Market town only 5 miles away.

The Island, although small [25 x 15miles] most of the large mainland stores are here.

Island population only 150,000, only 7 towns, only 3 of which above 14,000, [90% countryside] & small villages like mine, a perfect balance.

Against;
Not a lot, except my living relatives are on the mainland 130 miles away, & I can't face the journey these days.

Scotland

Pros:
- Better education system than anywhere else in the UK
- More history, culture and tourism
- Most of the dodgy immigrants stay in England
- Probably has more varied countryside than England

Cons:
- The stupid Independence debate, an independent Scotland is not a good thing at all
- Young kids are being indoctrinated into anti-Englishness, it seems
- The national football team's a complete, sick joke
- There are politicians also sponsoring anti-Englishness
- Scottish people are cocky and arrogant rather than actually having pride in their country


In short, I don't really like it too much. England or emigrate.
