India

India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country with over 1.2 billion people, and the most populous democracy in the world. Bounded by the Indian Ocean ... on the south, the Arabian Sea on the south-west, and the Bay of Bengal on the south-east, it shares land borders with Pakistan to the west; China, Nepal, and Bhutan to the north-east; and Burma and Bangladesh to the east. In the Indian Ocean, India is in the vicinity of Sri Lanka and the Maldives; in addition, India's Andaman and Nicobar Islands share a maritime border with Thailand and Indonesia.Home to the ancient Indus Valley Civilisation and a region of historic trade routes and vast empires, the Indian subcontinent was identified with its commercial and cultural wealth for much of its long history. Four world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism—originated here, whereas Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Christianity, and Islam arrived in the 1st millennium CE and also helped shape the region's diverse culture   more

Australia

Australia, or colloquially, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neig... hbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.For at least 40,000 years before the first British settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia   more

The PRC is a single-party state governed by the Communist Party, with its s... eat of government in the capital city of Beijing. It exercises jurisdiction over 22 provinces, five autonomous regions, four direct-controlled municipalities, and two mostly self-governing special administrative regions. The PRC also claims the territories governed by the Republic of China, a separate political entity commonly known as Taiwan today, as a part of its territory, which includes the island of Taiwan as Taiwan Province, Kinmen and Matsu as a part of Fujian Province and islands the ROC controls in the South China Sea as a part of Hainan Province, a claim which is controversial due to the complex political status of Taiwan.Covering approximately 9.6 million square kilometers, China is the world's second-largest country by land area, and either the third or fourth-largest by total area, depending on the method of measurement   more

For a reason.

I hate to spoil the friendship fantasy here, but no country and no governing power can ever be relied on. And to be perfectly honest we should full well know that by now. The only sensible and reasonable form of alliance you can rely on is the people. The people are the ones you should be proud to be allies with, because if they are given freedom from government, we would all be a much better people, with less war, less greed and less poverty. Believe it people, you know you want to. But it is true. A voluntary society is what we need. Totalitarian scum like our forms of government are primitive and non-durable aspects. We no longer need governments to tell us what to do, what to eat, how to dress. Or anything that goes against our will. Paying for land that not anybody owns perspectively. We are all earthlings, not machines that exist on this world, in this universe, on this speck of dust to be paying taxes and being enslaved by a minute elite government. We are all equally humans. We have no status in this life. At the end of the day, we are all here with the same organs, the same brain and the same aspirations. What the hell does the government do for your freedom? Apart from take it away, minimise it and abuse it. What the hell does the government do apart from make more appealing aspects of a limited freedom that is restricted, and taxed to make money off of you for there own benefit, and better themselves, whilst deliberately demeaning you, to which you stand as an equal opponent.

Not Russia for sure
Itani says2014-11-14T18:44:14.4032614-06:00
Russia really hates us but what's funny is most Americans see them as allies. I don't get that.
Hippo says2014-11-14T19:36:18.7816831-06:00
Australia would be the best ally.
ben671176 says2014-11-14T22:35:28.2913930-06:00
It determines on your definition of 'ally'. Economic ally? Political ally? Military ally? Cultural ally? Or what?
Itani says2014-11-15T01:44:54.6271052-06:00
I guess I should've said most trust-worthy ally, or maybe grouped all those together.
