Perhaps Bavaria?

Bavaria is Germany's version of Texas for sure

Hello Dutchie, how are you doing


AwskWeddit

Pritteh good! How about you?


JustNoName4U

Very good hè


joybomber

perplexing levels of national pride, distrust of ethnic minorities, solving problems with a blunt object to the head... yep, it’s Serbia


HomeHeatingTips

Perplexing levels of national pride, juxtaposed with mass support for seceding from said Nation. Usually from the same people. Those same people have a Blue lives matter flag in one hand, and a yellow Don't tread on me flag in the other.


Most-Situation8870

Love how my brain immediately thought Italy


67SuperReverb

geographically accurate


[deleted]

There's a real-life example: Great Britain. They literally left the EU. They have a conservative leader. High national pride compared to other EU nations. They hate illegal immigration.

There are actually a lot of really nice people in Texas, too.


MooseTetrino

As a Brit I only hate one nation state outright and that’s my own.


ProfessionalDesk7296

Bavaria


themadturk

This is the answer I anticipated.


Poorly-Drawn-Beagle

The Balkans?


Xanimia

As a europian id say the balkans in the 1990s.


WeebofOz

England?


Cnnlgns

Russia.


DziadekFelek

OP asked for Europe


The_Bobos

Russia is a transcontinental nation that stretches over eastern Europe and northern Asia. However since European Russia is in Europe, it is placed in the European continent following the United Nations classification and most of its population resides in the «European» part of Russia around 77% in 2021. So it wouldnt be innacurate to say Russia as a suggestion.


Cnnlgns

Google it my guy for a quick geography lesson.


Ok_Ice6531

Saxonia in germany


Watsis_name

The UK. Poor Education, one of the most "oil rich" nations in Europe, right wing, bad history in race relations, inexplicably wealthy.


[deleted]

We conquered a quarter of the globe, it's not inexplicable.


Watsis_name

When you look at the state the country is in now it seems unreal that a bunch of such incompetents conquered anyone.


Happy-Personality-23

Want to tell us where that wealth is? The U.K. is fucked most of the country is living in poverty like conditions and it’s getting worse.


Watsis_name

Ask the Tories where the money went. They're the ones relentlessly introducing tax hikes while cutting funds to key services.


Happy-Personality-23

Well taxes are still at an all time high, petrol is at £2 per litre in some places and reaching it everywhere else. Gas and electricity prices are criminally high yet no one has any money. And it’s all the conservatives that are doing it. Every government does this not just the tories they are all as bad and corrupt as the others.


Watsis_name

Every government except all the governments we've had that aren't Tory. The Tories are the government of high tax, this has been beyond doubt since 2010.


Happy-Personality-23

No mate every single government has been shit. Every single one. The conservatives and Lib Dem’s are just as bad as the tories you can try to deny it but it’s true.


[deleted]

In the pockets of the tory front bench.


[deleted]

Paris because there’s a Paris Texas, duh.


Uncooked_wonton

What about the other 22 American cities named Paris?


[deleted]

Not relevant because the op is asking what is Europe’s version of TEXAS


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

I would relax with yelling Texas. You really want them to hear us trying to figure out which commie country they are?


ALPHABOGDOG

From what I know, Texas is the greatest country in America /s

Specialist-Choice520

Bro?


ALPHABOGDOG

Or the other ones. Edinburg, athens, florence ...


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

Or Paris Hilton


Lvcivs2311

Concerning culture/mentality/politics, I'm not sure. Hungary perhaps? Concerning landscape: Spain, obviously. Ever watched European westerns? Noticed the lack of cactuses in those deserts? Yeah, that's all shot in Spain.


IrishStubborn69

Which Nordic state annoyingly thinks they are the best, arrogantly? It’s that one.


Mnn-TnmosCubaLibres

Norway has oil


IrishStubborn69

Bingo


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

I think Ireland is the only country anywhere near wild enough to be eurotex


ALPHABOGDOG

Knowing very little about Europe, Ireland seems to fit the MO


Lonely-Sink-7085

Why Ireland?


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

Idk just felt right. Started going through countries and realizing why they couldn’t be Texas and Ireland came out on top


Lonely-Sink-7085

Ireland is very progressive. Struggling to see the comparison.


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

I really wasn’t taking whether or not the country was progressive or not in my imaginary who can be eurotex.


Watsis_name

Ireland is a modern prosperous nation. They stereotype of the spud loving drunkard died with the British Empire.


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

Texas is the second largest economy in the US. It had. Nothing to do with spud loving drinktards


HoldMyPitchfork

And the 10th largest economy in the world


Brasscogs

We party and have the craic, but we also believe in a woman’s right to an abortion so not too sure.


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

We have that too. What do you mean


Brasscogs

Until a fetal heartbeat is detectable which is like 6-weeks. Most women barely know they’re pregnant by then…


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

15 weeks in Texas which is the strictest i believe


Brasscogs

Correct me if I’m wrong but didn’t that change in 2021 under the Texas Heartbeat Act?


tommygunz007

• Stereotype of excessive drinking/fighting • Overwhelming sense of mis-matched pride • Eats the worst out of any neighboring countries or states • Lots of fat ugly men and better looking skinnier women.


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

No it really just boiled down to who it can’t be. I didn’t think that hard into this lol England - no Texas would never lose to 13 colonies France - no Texas would never let Germany bitch slap them twice in a row Germany - no Texas wouldn’t never kill Jews Spain - no world war title Italy - took orders from hitler So Ireland it was

SilentThing

And the open racism here highlights the point too.


2Ravens89

I am not entirely sure what you mean sir.


SilentThing

Generally speaking, when you follow a group's name with "sorry, XYZ" you are on thin ice.


2Ravens89

Racist as a white European against white Europeans by virtue of the fact they live in a trailer. Quite the active imagination you have.


SilentThing

You reckon there isn't massive racism towards the Roma (and if you know a better term, anyone, please tell) in the UK?


2Ravens89

The Roma are nothing like Texans, this is a bizarre tangent you have gone on. Our Irish friends are.


Brasscogs

Please do not bring Ireland into this. We’re ashamed enough as it is to be associated with the Uk let alone Texas. Leave us alone


2Ravens89

I don't think the Irish travelers are ashamed friend. A few landed their caravans in my work car park last week. As I left the building I wasnt sure if it was Manchester or San Antonio.


SilentThing

Did you read the title of the thread? You literally, explicitly made that connection. Like, in your first message you said they are your association to Texas.


AurallyTalented

Texaus. They add the letter “U” to words where it’s entirely unnecessary so, Texaus.


nillieb

The UK apparently...


Barbarian_Sam

Switzerland?


SilentThing

Just no.


Barbarian_Sam

Then who? And that was a reference to them being more armed then most other countries


SilentThing

I got why you picked it. And it has been a regressive backwater regarding women's rights. But the full on regression is way more closely tracked by Hungary.


Barbarian_Sam

Define womens rights for me if you could


7he_Devils_Adv0cate

They aren’t allowed to keep bullets with the guns. It’s a paper weight


DJ_Die

Would you please stop spreading this lie? It's not true. Their military simply doesn't issue free ammo to the reservists anymore. But they can all the ammo they want pretty easily. And that has nothing to do with CIVILIAN gun ownership, which is far more common. (140thousand military guns vs. 2-5-3.5 MILLION civilian guns)


Saxit

Not sure where you got that from. Head over to r/switzerlandguns if you got any questions instead of guessing. You can buy ammo from a gun store in Switzerland, just how it works in any other country. You can even mail order it and have it delivered to your home. What they stopped doing is handing out boxes of ammo from the military, to keep at home in case of war. There is no law against keeping any other ammo though.


Barbarian_Sam

You ever been hit with a paperweight?


LurkertoPost

I thought it was Hungary, but I've never been to either place. I just don't know who Hungary's Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson or Janis Joplin are.


No-Introduction-1492

All you Europeans have said a different answer, make up your mind already!


ALPHABOGDOG

Maybe they have different ideas of Texas


Castles_Of_Dragons

Moldova or Georgia.


random_user_lol0

Georgia is in caucasia


Internal-Day4806

Idk about Texas but Europe’s version of Florida is definitely Spain


IntlPartyKing

I don't know...an American radio DJ had a recurring bit where he would read an outrageous news story, then ask the listeners if it happened in Florida or Germany. People called in with their reasoning, but were very frequently wrong.


Internal-Day4806

My logic is that everyone comes here to get wasted for spring break/old people love buying retirement homes. Also the drug flow is much alike


ChronicCronut

Maybe Poland?


Mikael-Gabriel

Spain?


meandering_simpleton

I dont think there is one

________________me

Stupid self-obsessed question


ALPHABOGDOG

I'm listening.


________________me

Why should there be a 'whatever US has' here? Assume I like goldfish a lot, then ask what is your favourite type of goldfish? You'd say fuck off and be right about it not?


ALPHABOGDOG

Assuming you like goldfish a lot, you could then ask me, "what is your version of my 'goldfish'?", meaning "what is the nearest thing you have to the thing I have?".


________________me

My problem is not that the question is stupid, but that it is another example of US cultural appropriation and shear unwillingness to understand anything beyond the almighty self other than another part of itself. Call me sensitive, but it is the same mechanism that is behind all the European names US cities have.


ALPHABOGDOG

Okay. I understand your view, and I disagree. It seems like there is more in your experience than this one post that caused you to have this view. Your experiences are valid.


Statakaka

The USA


MrPuzzleMan

Ireland. Loud, rowdy, drunk, and nationalistic. Same with Northern Ireland, aka the Ireland that wanted to be seen as unique (as far as just adding an adjective to an existing nation's name is), but will eventually be reabsorbed by Ireland and forgotten in about 50 years.
