Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action–
Into that heaven of freedom, my father, let my country awake.
Happy Independence Day

For your amusement and (maybe) edification: This is what the world would look like if the countries with the biggest populations were moved to the countries with the largest geographical area. I, for one, have underestimated the populations of Pakistan and Vietnam. Also, while I have no problem with Canada, just for the sake of ethnic and linguistic diversity I like the idea of having India up there instead (though some Indians might find the climate takes some adjusting to).
