Doubt about Egypt, Argentina, Spain, Israel.
And yes, I have this largely based on population number.The more people coming from your country, the more likely others have come across people from your country.
The major countries:
- The United States
The European countries with history:
- The United Kingdom
- South Korea
With apologies to all the countries that could have also been in it (South Africa, Israel, Mexico, Argentina, Congo, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Australia…).
Well just to mention the first 12 who stand up in me:
The Netherlands of course not, that is for most people a kind of province of Germany.
As a European I will be focused differently than most of humanity, but I am making an effort.
First of all, China and India, in these countries, live more than a quarter of the world’s population, and people will often know in which country they live.
Of the United States I think the majority will have heard too.It is still the world’s largest economy and militarily they have been present or attended in many places. In addition, many American products and brands are known worldwide.
Israel will also be known to many in spite of its small size.Very many people and other countries are obsessed with Israel. Either as a symbol of everything that is wrong, either as a shining example. Anti-Semitism and Philosophism will certainly play a role.
I also think of Indonesia, as the largest Muslim country And with Saudi Arabia, because of Mecca and Medina, the two sacred cities of Islam.Then Spain, as the motherland of the language spoken in almost all of America.Great Britain is, of course, also known because this country dominated a quarter of the world until recently.
Then of course Russia as the world’s largest Country, Nigeria and South Africa as the most important countries in Africa, the cradle of humanity.
Finally Egypt as an important country in antiquity.
In no particular order
- United States
- United Kingdom
- South Korea
This question can only be answered subjectively because every person in another geographic location will have a different worldview.
So my opinion.
- USA most influential always in the news
- Russia also in the news as a counter-pole of USA
- China Factory of the world
- Germany economic powerhouse
- UK Brexit
- Greece debt crises
- France French Cuisine
- Italy Dolce Vita
- Spain Bullfight
- Japan Technology
- India or Brasil Taj Mahal or Copacabana;)
- Mexico They are going to pay the wall:)
United States of America, China, Russia, Brazil, Australia, India, England, France, Egypt, Korea, Spain, Argentina.
The very first list.
For me the first 12 coming up in me: USA, Russia, Canada, Mexico, China, Italy, Australia, Brazil, Japan, Belgium, France, United Kingdom.
