Top Ten Most Stereotyped Countries

PositronWildhawk
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 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.

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!

Because apparently my friends are fat, talentless, and stupid people, I am a fat, talentless, and stupid person, my parents are fat, talentless, and stupid people, and my teachers are fat, talentless, and stupid people. It's not true. I know about the existence of other nations. None of my friends really count as fat, and aren't even close to stupid or talentless. I know about world affairs-about Canada, about Sweden, about Liechtenstein. I'm not a blundering ignorant idiot, and random Americans that are blundering ignorant idiots don't represent me.

Anybody who stereotype the United States are massive idiots, people who do often speak OUR language (English). They also use American websites such as Google, and YouTube (owned by Google). Any scum who stereotype us have no right to use our products.

It's all PETA's fault! Enough said!

It is a Parliamentary Constitutional Monarchy currently lead by Monarch Queen Elizabeth II and it's 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! - PositronWildhawk

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! - PositronWildhawk

I don't like tea, and according to stereotypes that means I don't belong here.

American's mind: *snorting laugh* I'll get the crumpets ready, Jeeves boil the kettle if you would not mind me asking.

Reality (Mainly East London): You alright geezer? Yea me an all. // Rugby's on soon, I'll be up the pub watching it.

France beats them all with the French bashing. - lili117

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

If you look closer into their flag, you'll see their old flag from 1940.

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

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.

WE don't DRINK VODKA, don't LIKE BEARS, don't HACK, don't SAY "СУКА БЛЯ"Ь"! STOP IT! *TRIGGERED*

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

Haha.. They say we all have turbans.

India is a lot safer for women than most western countries

India is the MOST stereotyped country ever.
Examples?
We all wear turbans.
Curry is all we eat.
We don't have clean cities. (Bangalore is a dust free city. Rural areas are getting better after the swachh bharat abhiyan)
The worst one that I've heard is
Raping is so common women are raped in public.

6 China 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.

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.

They say that they are afraid of black people, are good at math, eat dogs, etc...

Stereotypes suck

They say they are cheap, can't drive, and are smart, and know kung fu, and LOTS LOTS more...

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. - PositronWildhawk

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?

"Canada isn't a country" "Toronto is literally a village compared to New York" "Montrealers eat Baguettes" -Ignorant Americans lmao Canada is a country, a goood one, Toronto is NOT a village, it's a hige city, Montreal has the best food in North American big cities fyi

8 Australia 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.

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 have never seen a kangaroo in my life and more people die falling out of beds rather than being killed my dangerous animals.

Crickey! There are some bloody stereotypes, like those hats and pissing in glasses.

We don't ride kangaroos

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. - DogsUnleashed

There will be even more if Trump takes office... - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

I am Mexican: My whole family is super pale and we don't live in a pueblito. We actually have amazing schools in here.

I’m German living in Mexico and when I came here my whole family started telling me: be careful it’s dangerous! Seriously I have never been assaulted or kidnapped. Everyone is so kind and not dangerous at all!

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. - PositronWildhawk

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

Americans are still stupid enough to think that Germans are still Nazis, because it seems as if they are still stuck in the 1940's. Hell, more Americans are Nazis than Germans are. I'd even go as far to say that there are NO Germans Nazis. Let me tell you, the US is pathetic.

I'm sorry that we haven't yet forgot one of the most bloodiest wars with Germans killing millions of people. Also, your argument is a stereotype in itself. It makes me want to laugh. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

I've never been but I'm sure its not like it was.
