- Which esterotypes do you think are usually linked to people from this country?
Fat, agressive, ignorant, domineering, attached to displays of wealth, bigots, rude tourists - or nerdy, hunched, very computer-savvy - or stoner hippie - or black gangster.
- If you picture an average person from this country, how do you think his/her life will be? (childhood, studies, type of work, relationships... whatever comes to your mind).
Little Jo is born in a middle class family. His parents put a lot of pressure on him to be better than others. He is bullied as he desperately tries to fit in, and worries a lot about popularity and prom.
He majors in liberal arts, and gets a job flipping burgers. He gets fatter and more depressed as time goes on, despite ascending to Flipping Burger Manager. He eventually borks his wife into having two kids, and tries to live vicariously through them.
- How would you describe an average person's physical appearance? (this includes also the clothing, hairstyle and so on)
Jeans, T-shirt, short black hair, stocky.
- Which aspects do you think you would like and dislike about living in this country? (compared to your actual country)
There seems to be a lot of bullshit social customs (tipping), lot of religious craziness (see abortion and gay marriage "debates"), the whole society seems to be engineered on domination

That may or may not help.
