Easy: Is it a industrialized democracy? No. Ergo, it's not a first-world country. Is it a communist comradocracy? No. Ergo, it's not a second-world country. Since there's only three worlds, it follows it's a third-world country. Andreas PS Since the second world isn't anymore, and at least most of my friends aren't familiar with the designation "the first world", the term "the third world" don't make to much sense nowadays. I wonder how long it'll remain with us ... _________________________________________________________________ Join the world’s largest e-mail service with MSN Hotmail.
