What does it take for a country to be called a "proper" country? Lots of murders and violence?
Austria history is full of murder and violence, especially lots of bullying from bigger and richer countries.
IMO Austria should be made some kind of magic floating continent (like in Chrono Trigger).
For a country that was the birthpace of the greatest geniuses of the last 2 centuries Austria deserves at least this. People like von Mises (kinda), Hayek, Schumpeter and Karl Popper gave my academic life some meaning.
"You are for ever angry, all you care about is intelligence, but I repeat again that I would give away all this superstellar life, all the ranks and honours, simply to be transformed into the soul of a merchant's wife weighing eighteen stone and set candles at God's shrine."
