Top Ten Most Stereotyped Countries

If I may say so, there are many stereotypes about other countries out there. But who suffers the most from it?

The Top Ten

1 United States The United States of America, or the U.S.A. for short, is a federal republic composed of 50 states, 48 of them are contiguous states. There are two other states, Alaska and Hawaii, which are north and south of the contiguous states, respectively. The United States declared its independence from the ...read more.

TO MANY STEREOTYPES ARE MAKING AMERICA LOOK BAD. The countless insults and descriptions make Americans like me look like arrogant, greedy, selfish, obese, slobs! I don't like it one bit! It must stop. This might be because the United States is well-known and famous. It is also isolate from a lot of the world through two oceans. I think the US is an awesome country!

The fame and success of the United States probably lead to the many stereotypes of the modern day. They are VERY OFFENSIVE to me and my fellow Americans. In Reality, the US is a really great country.

They're massively stereotyped. They're not all fat, they're not stupid, they're not careless for other countries! Drop it all! All US stereotypes!

The only truth about America is that it's the most famous country in the world and will always be.

2 United Kingdom The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly shortened to United Kingdom, UK or Britain is a Sovereign State located of the Northwestern coast of Europe. It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and its current prime minister is ...read more.

And I like tea and a Sunday Roast too, and anything British too (that isn't crumpets or eggs, which taste like fried mucus), but not ALL THE TIME! I like variety!

As a Brit, I can say that hardly any of us are posh tea-drinking crumpet-eating snobs. I like a good full English breakfast, but NOT EVERY DAY!

British people are quite nice actually.

Not all British people are obsessed with the royal family.

3 France France, officially the French Republic, is a sovereign state comprising territory in western Europe and several overseas regions and territories. The European part of France, called metropolitan France, extends from the Mediterranean Sea to the English Channel and the North Sea, and from the Rhine to ...read more.

France beats them all with the French bashing.

Yes, French bashing is a national sport of certain countries, they are pure stereotypes which continue despite their complete inaccuracy.

Not all French people are romantic.

French people also get stereotyped for eating frogs leg and snails.

4 Russia Russia, known as the "Russian Federation", was formed on Dec 25, 1991. It is located mainly in Asia. The capital and largest city is Moscow, followed by Saint Petersburg in terms of population. The country primarily speaks Russian, a Slavic language.

In Soviet Russia, Russians stereotype YOU.

I am sick of other countries thinking that I am evil because I am a 14 year old teenage girl from Russia

Well to be honest, that is correct.

Hackers, vodka, harshness, cold

5 China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1.388 billion. It was established in 1949 by Chairman Mao, the president of the communist party. Its capital is Beijing. The major cities are Shanghai, ...read more.

...Wow... To that user who wrote mean jokes about Chinese people. Some Chinese people are quite nice, some not.

I would have chosen Japan but Chinese stereotypes are worst and all the bad press China receives made me change my mind

I'm Chinese and I suck at driving, I'm very rude to others and I'm good at maths. (Jokes) I suck at maths!

Everyone is so ignorant and assumes all Asians are Chinese. Everyone makes fun of our language. Everyone hates Chinese for eating dogs even though Americans eat pigs. I'm not saying that it is aceptable to eat dogs, but people should stop critizizing one another when they have their own similar problems.

6 Australia Australia, officially known as the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. Australia has a very warm climate and is very dry. The country's official language is English.

For the record, nobody and I repeat NOBODY EVER SAYS "sHriMp oN tHe BaRbiE"

In Australia we call one of the seafoods named prawns, NOT SHRIMP!

Guys, even though Australia is recognized as the exotic and isolated country of kangaroos, the facts show us that this amazing land indeed is incredibly developed and has some of the most liveable cities in the planet, such like Melbourne and Sydney.

I shouldn't be so offended by this ( because I'm American not Australian) but I hate Australian stereotypes. Everyone thinks Australia is purely put a island filled with spiders but there's more to it ( also is it normal to say mate after every sentence in Australia, because that what everyone I know does when the do a impression of Australia)

7 Canada Canada is a country in North America that is next to the United States, and it's the 2nd largest country in the world by area (size is 9.985 million km²). This country has 10 provinces, and 3 territories. Canada became a dominion on July 1, 1867. Its 10 provinces are: Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, ...read more.

Well not all of them are nice, in fact, some of them are very mean to the United States. We are allies, we should be friends.

I don't know why Americans appear to be so paranoid about Canada. They both have similarities and differences, but not such that they can be enemies.
Side note: America does not hate Canada. And I don't think they do, nor do I hate either of them. That's another one of many deceitful American stereotypes.

Face it. All Americans hate canadians. it's just a fact. you should hate Americans. Americans should die!

I live in Canada and it is not freezing!

Canada likes Maple Syrup, eh? Canada likes hockey, eh? Canadians always say "eh" all the time, eh?

8 India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world. Its capital is New Delhi.

Don't know any of these stereotypes? Watch Goodness Gracious Me. One of the funniest things ever. And no, it's not offensive.

Haha.. They say we all have turbans.

India is a lot safer for women than most western countries

9 Mexico Mexico, officially the United Mexican States, is a federal republic located in North America. The country is located between the U.S. and Central America, and is known for its Pacific and Gulf of Mexico beaches and its diverse landscape of mountains, deserts, and jungles.

I don't even like beans and everyone tells me "Come to the shade, you're paler than a cloud." And for Heaven's sake, we don't steal your jobs! It's just you that refuse them.

Not all Mexicans wear big rounded hats!

10 Germany Germany was formally united in 1871 under the initiative of Bismarck with King Wilhelm of Prussia as emperor. The previous 'Holy Roman Empire', basically a continuation of the empire of Charlemagne/Karl der Grosse was dissolved in 1806. ...read more.

It is all Hitler's fault for making Germans look bad by his hatred towards Jews and Nazi's killing them. Not all Germans worship Hitler and they don't kill Jews and anyone (other than Jews) at all.

"Not all Germans worship Hitler."
True. The country pretty much doesn't give a thought to Hitler any longer.

France is no longer Napoleonic, and Russia is no longer Soviet, so why does everyone say that Germany is Nazi? Stuck in 1939? Move on. And look at Germany now.

This is for Hitler: "How DARE you disgrace all Germans! You made your own kind look bad, and evil! "

Its funny how people from Germany try to justify the fact that they are wrongfully accused of being Nazi and racist with only argument that "US is pathetic" :p. They have self-irony, I give them that :P
