Not even close. The argentinean case is way more complex because It used to be a normal latin american country but which at some point (late 19 and early 20 centuries) received many immigration from most of the world (specially europe).

So argentina is a really a latin american nation which got europeanized by the time and wages of immigrants.

If you're including South Africa, then you should probably include Namibia and nearly every country in the Americas save for most of the English-speaking West Indian countries.

Many of the Argentineans who claim pure european ancestry are in fact mixed.
But what is more important european blood or culture? in order to fit as european?

For example the US and Canada got many people of unmixed european blood (mainly british and Irish) but yet those people are very far from being european culturally and menteally-wise.

Include New Caledonia, French Poloynesia, Israel, Kazakhstan and United Arab Emirates, yet for the last one they are not citizens there.

There are studies done by University of buenos Aires, which in fact show that 56% of Argentineans have at least one amerindian ancestor, compared to 44% who don't.

There could be trace amounts the people are unaware of. It's like Taiwan, where some studies say that as much as 80% of Taiwanese have some indigenous DNA, but many are unaware of it.

the US has probably the most.. with spanish, french and english early colonization.. as well as large immigrations from Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Norway.. (half the population of Norway immigrated to the United states in the late 1800's and early 1900's) later came the irish, and italians, I think hands down the US is the best representation of European Ancestry that has blended into a single nation of people.. I myself can name 6-10 countries in europe I have ancestry from... and I'm not alone..much of this was due to open land being offered for free in the interior of America.. Boise where I live has the largest concentration of Basque people outside of the Basque region in spain. There are places in Eastern Idaho where large groups of people from Sweden settled, where highways are called "New Sweden road" etc.. and you see lots of blondes running around still

Most Americans are of mixed European descent. There are not that many that are just of British descent. Also Irish ancestry in the US is over reported (not to say there isn't quite a bit of Irish) mainly because a lot of Americans have ancestry from the Scots-Irish and just call it Irish but in general Americans have multiple ancestry from Europe. I'm not that sure on Canada but they have quite a number of people of French ancestry.

Countries like Australia and New Zealand are more likely to descend from just British Isles ancestry although this is changing here as well. Countries like Australia also have quite a few Italians, Greeks and Dutch as far as Europeans go.

For an example just pick a well know American (that you think is mainly of British descent)? I bet they are of mixed European descent.

Someone like Julia Roberts is of German, English, Scottish, Welsh, Swedish descent. She is also said to have possible Cherokee.
