New Zealand - Japan

Big mountains, earthquake prone with inspiring views.

New Zealand - United Kingdom

English speaking island nations with a Mild (lacking in extremes) temperate climate. Some mountains in the Uk would resemble the Southern Alps in NZ.

South Africa - Australia

Similar natural environments, English speaking and in the southern Hemisphere.

Scandinavia - Canada

Large expanse of Boreal forests, lakes and noted for being a liberal society.

Virginia / Massachusetts / Rhode Island / other New England states - Britain & Ireland

Similar forest type, historical links and the culture is interlinked with British / Irish cultures.

Brazil - Angola

Portuguese and African derived culture. Interchange of music and culture..

Ah, thank you very much.
Now here are differences
Texans are very religious, we Germans aren't
They are conservative, we aren't
The climate is completely different as well.
