Which evil nation state are you?

This is hilarious: compares major computing companies (Microsoft, Yahoo et al) to the countries that they are most like.
Microsoft is Germany. They did some pretty evil things a while back but you don't remember the details, you just know that you really hate them. Even though they're really no worse than any other large corporpation/country, you can't help but distrust them permanently because, well, you always have.
Apple is the Netherlands - a little aloof, playing along with counterculture and making it mainstream, way over-designed, all the pot-heads love it, but it plays very nice with all the big doggies. is Chechnya: Comprehensible only to those inside.
Make sure you read all the comments - comedy gold there people!
