They all owned the collective world, after all. Or at least the useful parts of it.
I guess Portugal gets an honorable mention, but they're really just part of Spain, I'd hardly give them the right to be an actual nation.
The Dutch as well. France just went to the desert and created countries that nobody would want to invade because it’s sh*t. Look at Africa, it’s gone to pot in the French part. With the exception of Rhodesia British Africa is fine.
It’s a reflect action. If you live somewhere sh*t you naturally think you’re French or Irish, hence why most yanks think they’re Irish.
It was a good trade, we went to the new world and got things like the potato, tomato, and in return we got rid of the Celts. Them in the new world clearly didn’t know that that was a win, win for us other wise they’d have had higher prices for the potatoes.
