Which World Country are you?

Nation's name: Lietuvos Respublilka (Republic of Lithuania. Poland calls him "リト," which is "Liet.")
Capital: Vilnius
Language: Lithuanian
Birthday (Independence from Soviet Union): February 16th
National flower: Rue (personal note: its flower language is "regret")
Human name: Toris Laurinaitis
Height: Unknown
Age: 19 (appearance. The nation will celebrate the millennium in 2009)
-Exists as the eldest brother of the three Baltic states,
-Used to be a member of the Teutonic Knights, but established independence as the Kingdom of Lithuania after a rebellion against Christianity
-But was often pursued by German knights hoping to convert them into Christianity. (Note: Lithuania was the last pagan nation of Europe)
-After that, became a commonwealth with Poland and peacefully converted to Christianity.
-But was taken over by Russia after a fight over the annexation/partition of Poland.
-A good-natured person who likes to take care of people, and even though he has the Baltic attribute of being introverted, is the type who will take one into his heart when he gets used to that person.
-But, perhaps it is because of this sort of personality that he holds the infamous record of having the highest suicide rate of the world.
-Loves martial arts and literature. Also, his car is definitely a second-hand car. Is particular about taste, and is known to use many flavours of ketchup and mayonnaise in a day.
Ahh, sweet little Liet! Lithuania is a people-pleaser, and seemingly a bit of a doormat due to his unfortunate history with Russia. But Lithuania is quite a strong, loyal fellow! (And such a sweetie, ohmygod ;_;)
