To be fair to the Swiss, I probably wouldn't have antagonized the Nazis in their position either. It just wouldn't end well. Hell, the Germans wouldn't have even needed to send in ground troops, they could have just bombed the country to rubble.

But the Swiss still fucked up in other ways. For instance, even with full knowledge of the death camps, and even before that they knew about that they knew about persecution of Jews, they made it deliberate policy to keep Jews out of the country.

One country that actually did a decent job of staying Neutral was Yurkey. Inonu knew that he would have gotten rolled by Germany, despite being somewhat pro-allies. Even when the allies were winning, it was quite obvious that a large German airbase right beside the Turkish border would have caused large amounts of damage. So Turkey only came in on the allies side very late game in order to get into the UN (just like other nations, like some in Latin America).

As for the Swiss, I had a German uncle who wasn't too fond of them. Or maybe he was just joking when he called them the "fucking gnomes".

I'm pretty sure that no one is really too fond of Switzerland (as a nation), except the Swiss. People don't really trust neutral countries, and I suppose they can't be blamed for that; you can't always be sure where you stand with them, but you can be certain that they're sneaky bastards.

You've basically described America to the European powers during the 19th century. They just didn't want to make alliances.

You can also be sure that they're self-serving and unlikely to take an interest in the affairs of others unless it could affect them or they could prosper from the situation.

I dunno. I'm not sure about getting into a fight with Andrew Jackson or even Abraham Lincoln.

America did spend most of the 19th century primarily concerned with themselves. They hardly even bothered to war with anyone outside their borders.

I guess the Golta would be the most "swiss" style nation, since they dont want to get involved in anyone elses politics or alliances.

Lincoln was 10" taller than me and could hold his own in a fight, and Andrew Jackson had more experience than me when it came to dueling and beating seven shades of shit out of would-be assassins.

But we're talking about smiting turn of the last century America, not presidents who had been dead since at least the 1860s. I can win a fight with a lifeless corpse easily enough, they tend not to do much when you hit them.

Apparently he was also skilled at killing confederate vampires.
And since it was probably vampires that killed him he might well be alive in his coffin with super vampire powers.
So I wouldn't risk calling him out, Renard! He might suit up in his stove pipe again and come after you!
