Canada seems to work.
From the Globe and Mail Focus section1 this weekend …
… Stephane Dion, the Quebec intellectual who defined the nation perfectly. “Canada,” he said, “is a country that works in practice, but not in theory.”
This citation was from “The trick Lazurus taught the Liberals”, by Peter C. Newman.
1 Hmmm … the Globe & Mail is launching a reorganized web site, and the Focus seciton doesn’t seem to be showing up!
