Doing a good job

Discussion between an Austrian (A) and a Finn (F) in a local train:

F:"So how was the presidency in Austria?"
A:"Well, it was really seen as part of the cabinet promoting their own thing. And because the cabinet is not very popular, the presidency was more like what-ever."
F:"Oh, for us it is seen as a national project. Everyone is SOO proud. It's like back to the good old times of the nation state."

And the point was proven in two minutes. A drunken guy started promoting the country to our group loudly.

"Where are you people from? Welcome to Finland!"
