Also we refer to Germans as Krauts.
Correct. On the other hand, we like to call the brits "island apes". Which really isn't any more polite than calling someone "Krauts", heh.
But oh well, England isn't even a country anyway. :P
(And to back that up: England has no sovereignty. There's no English Parliament, but only a Parliament of the United Kingodm, which is based in London. Of course that also means that neither Scotland, nor Wales nor Northern Ireland are countries, since the Parliament of the United Kingdom has power over their territory as well. However, the United Kingdom is a country, since it has: a) territory, b) people living there c) a parliament that has power over the territory)
