Yeah, guess what? People in Russia love America and Americans. It’s a surprise to us, too! Tensions have frozen and thawed over and over just in the last few decades, and when America is shut out, people from the immense country start to take an interest in it.
It’s like the forbidden fruit – when mom and dad say no, the kids just get more interested. On the other side of the coin, Americans love to rebel, so when they’re told they aren’t allowed to visit, it just makes the country more interesting. If you’re able to get one of the notoriously stingy visas, there are endless things to see and do in Russia.
Wales, as part of the United Kingdom and Great Britain, is a strong ally with America. Strangely, people who live in England consider it a bit of a backwater area, and there's a number of noses being turned up from within the nations. Wales tends to side with America when it comes to the division between England and America (that's what we're told, at least).
Our off-and-on antagonism for England (which has, of course, been off for quite a while now) is something Wales enjoys a little bit. English and Welsh still eye each other warily, but Americans are welcome.
The United Kingdom
The U.K and the U.S. are like two brothers that fought a ton as kids but are now close. Or like friends that feuded before putting old things aside and joining together. Neither nation is perfect, but since the strains of World War II, the two countries have been fast friends and incredible allies.
A huge number of Americans have flown to London, Belfast, and elsewhere, while plenty of English have done the reverse and joined the United States. Despite how the countries sometimes take shots at each other, there's plenty of love to go around both between governments and the citizens.
Northern Ireland is an entirely separate country. It's part of the United Kingdom but NOT part of Great Britain. It's a common joke that people from America have a hard time with geography, but can you really blame us when you give us stuff like this? It's like it's designed to be confusing!
For reference, Great Britain is Scotland, Wales, and England. The United Kingdom is those three and Northern Ireland. The Irish might be nice to American tourists as long as they don't mention local politics; they hate it when Americans think they understand what's going on in the rest of the world.
The Dominican Republic
With hundreds of thousands of people visiting America from the Dominican Republic coming every year, and nearly two million Dominicans living in the United States, relations are good. The island country is the largest Caribbean economy and has a large amount of mutual trade with the U.S.
An estimated one hundred thousand U.S. citizens live in the Dominican Republic, and most of them have dual nationalities. There are also strong ties between the Dominican Republic and Puerto Rico, a neighboring territory that has many cultural and historical ties with America.
