    I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
    Some letter of that After-life to spell:
    And by and by my Soul return'd to me,
    And answer'd "I Myself am Heav'n and Hell :"

    It might be a better idea to nominate individual countries rahter than a whole continent.

    I will add USA as a country for now; if it is selected, then you can nominate concentrating on the southern part of the country, perhaps.

    Nominations so far:

    1. Japan

    2. Italy

    3. USA

    4. India

    5. South Africa

    6. Australia

    7. Finland

    8. France
