the upside of living in molvania
everything has its upside, even cholera (you don't feel the cold and lose a lot of weight). the same is true for molvania.
kernib's winters are not as harsh as those of verkhoyansk, ulan bator or the amundsen-scott south pole station.
molvania is not as corrupt as sierra leone, angola or the republic of congo, and has more civil liberties than turkey, the uae and iraq.
there are not as many murders per capita in molvania as there are in columbia, venezuala or belarus. perhaps because of this, people in molvania are more likely to reach 60 than those in kazakhstan, russian or turkmenistan.
but who cares, because molvania has more rollercoasters per capita than india, bangladesh or pakistan.
oddly enough, with all these advantages, the only people in the world who are unhappier than molvanians are those living in belarus, moldova and bulgaria. enid doesn't understand why - it's a great place to live, and the vareniki are yummy.
(for other people's views on home, have a look at marnie at i didn't say it was your fault.)
