I really hope that our current politics don't destroy this. Formerly we used to be seen by the world as a cool people, land of bossa nova and good football. Nowadays, there are a lot of people thinking that the new generation turned to a bunch of stupid far-right ultranationalists due to the behaviour of our president.

If you are rich, educated, urbane, erudite person (as all of us here are), your perception of niceness is going to be very different from that which felt by the rank and file.

So this is like, which country doesn't have many or any enemies? Moreso than the likeable character of the people, it's more about the geopolitical climate?

Not at all. You Taiwanese better not speak for Chinese. Thanks.

But "some" political narratives of CCP are well supported in China, such as Taiwan is a province of China. That is true.

Exactly why there's no reason to seperate the Chinese people and the government.

The Portuguese by far are my top choice.
Kiwis and Aussies are so chill and easy to travel with.
Canadians and Mexicans are always nice to run into whilst in Europe or Asia.
Irish and SCOTTISH are always a good time .
Brazilians have been a delight as well.
People from Thailand and Japan have always been great to socialize with.
I really like the Dutch haha always have great conversations with them. And Danes.
South Africans and Nigerians are cool.

Just because you purposefully avoid American culture just so you can crow about how 'European' you are doesn't mean everyone else is as equally myopic. I got my Master's in Italy and studied in Madrid as well. My European classmates knew more Simpsons references than I did.
This is the reason that when you're in Europe outside of Anglophone countries, people speaking English many times have an American accent. This was the case in London whilst in Uni and meeting people from all over Europe and the Arab world and most of them had American accents. Did they go to American institutions to learn English? Nope. They watched Friends, It's Always Sunny, and all the American media possible. Reminds me of the WandaVision series how she grew up watching American Sitcoms...and this is still very true today. American media is all over and will be all over. So it's natural that people will pick up on Americanisms.

Based on my travels abroad, Thais are very courteous. New Zealanders are very polite. Canadians are generally very open minded and polite. That is based on my limited experiences, of course your experiences will vary!
