    I realise that the British Empire committed a great many atrocities and injustices (like any other empire, I guess) but I just like to think of portly, moustachioed gentleman sailing around the world drinking tea and going "What ho! I say, old chap, what a spiffing day!"
    You forgot to mention the sunburnt noses.

    I think my soul would be slowly crushed in the Caldari state, despite it being considered the "Rational" equivalent. I'm too damn lazy to compete.

    Hmm. The Gallente Federation would probably crush my soul too, with all it's care bear parades. Minmatar it is?
    Um, yeah.

    I don't want to let myself be prejudiced, so I'm posting this answer and reading the others afterwards. To find out more information, I searched youtube and found this:

    [YOUTUBE="5OlxKejNPtI"]Start of Eve and Four Races of Eve[/YOUTUBE]

    Here's my perspective:

    Amarr: Interesting structure and moral code, too limited and restricted for my taste; irrational in their theocracy and simultaneous crusades/conquering. Okay, so they've managed to conquer several people; that's cool, but their focus will be too narrow to keep it in the long run.

    Minmatar: Completely uninteresting; I have nothing to do with people governed purely by their instincts and base natures. On the other hand, I do not believe they should have been enslaved. What do I want with them though??? Good party folks, shitty people in a fight. No thanks.

    Caldari: Fascinating idea; I would probably enjoy it for a while - the idea of a meritocracy has been one I have been proposing for years. Problem: It goes too far and leads to war. If it could be harnessed and controlled, it would be a good idea. We want to win, right?!?! So let's DO THIS!!!!!

    Gallente: Too liberal for my taste. Welcoming everyone in? NO THANKS! Multiculturalism is not a bad idea, but it goes too far and sounds like a willy nilly blah blah blah society that would get its ASS kicked in a fight. Hell no.

    EDIT: Oh ferk, guess that means I'm rationalist in a fight. Muhahaha!

    And still are, its just that they moved to Oz.

    For our environment of flood, fire and drought mock our pretensions and teach us defeat.

    Our National Day, ANZAC Day, commemorates a defeat at Gallipoli.

    Our National Hero, Ned Kelly, went down in defeat.

    And we love losers.

    We live in the Antipodes and we are the perfect antipode to our cousins who live at the pode on the other side of the Earth and who celebrate victories, whose heros are winners, and who hate losers.

    We live at two cultural poles or podes with only the Earth between us.

    And fortunately distance makes the heart grow fonder.

    I picture China to be like the Caldari Corporation. Nothing you really want to be in

    If I just wanted to play and enjoy myself it would be The Gallente. If my goal was strictly winning, my strategic choice would be Caldari (although they morally to run contrary to my values)
