One of Scandinavia and the World's centers is stereotypes from the point of view of Scandinavia itself. That just happens to be the way Scandinavians imagine the Spanish (and most other parts of the world for that matter).
It's kind of like me with the America in Scandinavia and the World. Last time I checked, I wasn't a bleached blonde bimbo with plastic volleyballs in my chest.
Alas, that is true. So weird a nation with such a long history and such a rich culture has become so dull. But you should have made THAT Italy guy looking much older, considered that Italian politicians are the both the OLDEST and MOST PAID in Europe.
But, well, there's a blessing: they usually start their government's period while being already quite old, so we don't have to wait too much for their rotting. ... it's a small comfort, but you've to grab whatever you can.
This is based on stereotypes that the Scandinavians have for people from other countries. That's probably how they imagine us, the same we usually think women from the Scandinavian countries are all like Sister Sweden XDDDD
