What's the general stereotype for your state or country? Like something that tourists expect to see or something that the rest of the world tends to think.

For Queensland it seems like people expect it to be sunny, with everyone surfing, all the time. I have run into some people who seem to think that we also have crocodiles literally down the street, that we wear ugg boots everywhere and that every few seconds they'll see somebody wielding a boomerang or petting a kangaroo.

Yea man Queensland was so disappointing I wanted to see a crocodile in ugg boots wielding a boomerang

jk

I'm not really sure what the stereotype is for NZ... maybe people think we battle Orcs and so forth with the help of our mythical allies?

That and that you guys can't pronounce fish and chips. Oh, and that you do the haka. ALL. THE. TIME. And that you all really like sheep >.>

For Britain: Sipping tea, eating scones and shaking hands with the Queen.

For Wales: Mud, hills and sheep.

It's you guys that can't pronounce it, got it all warped, and make funny faces

And well the Haka is pretty catchy, who wouldn't do a war dance whenever there's a showdown? Just because you guys get scared in sports matches

And well it's not us, it's the sheep, they really like us I swear

nic - Surely you can't forget the toasted cheese sandwiches and the singing! (for Wales).
Being a New South Welshman, The stereotypes vary depending on the tourist - Australians from other cities expect us to be slightly countrified, the rest of the world pretty much the same as Queensland, except perhaps more beer drinking and roo shooting.

^ This.

Also a lot of Americans seem to think that all British people live in London, and if we don't, we live in mud huts in a swamp. There is no other civilisation outside London.

As for Dorset: we're all farmers with accents as broad as the dirt tracks we drive our tractors on, we all live in little thatched cottages and it's always raining.
