Not so sure about this one.. it's hardly accurate to call Americans
a "white" nation...

The mediterranean flag ought to be added to french, italians, and spanish, 
and probably the arabs.

I'd like to see a few more of these regional classes. In particular, ones
for oceans.

 north_sea   - (english, scottish, danish, french, dutch, germans,

 baltic_sea  - (danish, vikings, swedes, finns, estonains, lithuanians,
                latvians, russians, poles, germans)

 atlantic_oc - (vikings, english, scottish, irish, welsh, cornish,
                french, spanish, portugese, canadians, americans,
                brazileans, argentines)

 pacific_oc  - (canadians, americans, aztecs, chileans, australians,
                vietnamese, filipinos, chinese, koreans, japanese,

 indian_oc   - (boers, kenyans, indians, persians, thais, singaporeans,

 black_sea   - (ukranians, russians, turks)

 arctic      - (canada, russia, swedish, vikings, finns, estonains,
                japanese, scottish, americans, lithuanians, danish)

 antarctic   - (argentines, australians, boers)

Scotland is probably better in anglosaxon instead of (or as well as)

In the long term (after the select-a-nation box scales better), I'd like
to see at least the following nations added - 

  afghans, albanians, armenians, assamese, austrians, basques,
  bengalis, bretons, britons (celts), burmese, bulgarians,
  corsicans, cypriots, dalmatians, etruscans, gauls, georgians,
  goths, indonesians, tajiks, khmer, laos, kashmiris, khazaks, malaysians,
  maltese, normans, norweigans, ottomans, orissans, pakistanis, phoenecians, 
  prussians, punjabis, romanians, sardinians, saxons, sinhalese, slovaks, 
  swiss, tamils, tatars, tibetans, uzbeks, uighirs, yi, vandals.

  hawaiians, fijiians, maori, papuans, samoans.

  colombians, cubans, jamaicans, greenlanders, inuit, mexicans,
  navajos, newfoundlanders, quebecois.

  cameroons, congo, ethiopians, gambians, ivorians, madagascans,
  nigerians, liberians, libyans, mali, rhodesians, morrocans,
  sierra leone, somalis, tunisians.
