If that shall happen, I just don't know the effect of 100 million Filipinos over the American economy, lol. More soldiers for the world police?

It's time the Belgians would come back to the Netherlands, all the silliness of starting your own country is getting old.

It would be a bit like North and South Korea tough because Belgian roads are just horrible and they are not exactly the brightest people on earth

It's the Netherlands who revolted from the rightful king, so it's you who should "come back". So better stop maintaining your roads, start selling all your assets to France and beat yourselves repeatedly over the head with a hammer to get to our level. And oh yeah... Stop selling potato chips in edible cartons... It's gross. And while we're at it, you might want to fry your fries twice and stop putting sugar in your mayonaise.

only if you will yell more often, get a worse taste in food and drinks and start having a fascination for the incredibly dull sport called football.

I agree with this here.

This is very interesting, aside from the fact about how hard it would be to unify them (this is speculative history). With a population of , what, 1.6 billion? How powerful would this make India? I can't help feeling that it would just make poor people in 3 different countries poor people in 1 country.
