I have a bad relationship with my family so instead I will say a few things about my country.
>We have been an oligarchic democracy with all nobles having the right to vote when most other countries in the world were monarchies. We merely elected our king as a president. Read up on Golden Liberty.
>We had an idea of a nation and nationalism far earlier than other countries. Our nobility and culture went crazy on oriental aesthetics and believed themselves to be commonly descendant from Sarmatians. Look up sarmatism for more info on that.
>Because of that, the nobility had an idea of equality before the law, and although classicist in nature, Poland had something that you could liken to civil liberties or civil rights for the nobility, including the right to vote no matter your wealth.
>Poland was also EXTREMELY tolerant as a society, we were the only country which actually allowed Jews in, giving them civil liberties to do whatever they want and even saying that they can come here if they don't have anywhere else to go. We had a minority of islamists which exist to this day and were accepting of basically all types of Christianity with all manner of people coming to our country. We were basically a multi-cultural society in the middle of Europe.
>That being said, we were also gigantic at the time, and at a certain time, we almost owned Russia, having actually occupied it temporarily during time of troubles. We geniuently captured Moscow.
