for me the top 6 would be.

1. universal healthcare (would be fucked and unable to live without it )
2. How we go about taxes and put them towards Healthcare (The more you make in Australia the more you are taxed and the less you make the less you are taxed it works well)
3. Light hearted nature ( In Australia people are generally light hearted and through insults around jokingly and not mean it and we accept it and pretty much don't make a fuss)
4. Mix of cultures. we don't have one culture our country is multicultural it's a mix of many cultures from around the world :)

5. Disabled and Retired treatment. ( Australia treats its disabled and retired people very well infact we have access to free psychologist visits and get money on a pension depending on the severity of the disability.

6: Rental assistance: oh shit i want to study but i can't afford to rent... the government has you covered with rental assistance up to $150 a fortnight for young people who have just moved out and started to study.

I'm not sure as to what I can consider as "my country" " as....

I blame moving around far too much, and not even residing in my birthplace for longer than two years. None of my family is from where I was born either.

Nothing. I don't understand why people romanticize their countries or other countries.

Every other country in the world thinks we're either crazy, or smartasses.

Either way, they're right.

Honestly I would say fuck this country shit, and hurry up and unite as a species already or a world government and stop fighting among ourselves.

Our tea, it may be stereotypical but a good cuppa really does make the day. Also our history, the British Empire was the largest empire to exist, it was the "empire on which the sun never sets" and we're also responsible for so many of the worlds technologies, the industrial revolution was our doing. Britain is just great, America might stand out as the global power in the world these days but you can't deny Britain played a huge part in the world a century or two ago

The beaches, sunny days and the cultural remnants of civilisations that are long gone (ancient Greek and Roman buildings). Gigantic cities that are filled with smog and other unhealthy gases are non-existent. Unfortunately, the people are horribly narrow-minded and have a difficult time accepting the fact that LGBT people are humans, too.

Well, it's a first world country, so I am living a pretty good life compared to a lot of other people.
