America is without government. Belgium is unimpressed because he went without a government for 535 days.

Have you tried turning your government off and turning it back on again?

I think I speak for everyone when I say that we need more Belgium in the comics. He is such a cute! Maybe a strip with the best pals, Netherland, Belgium and the often-forgotten Luxembourg. Maybe Luxembourg could be...riding a bicycle? Dressed as Reynard the Fox?

Man, we don't see much of Belgium.
Weird, considering that King Europe lives with him.

At this rate in America, we're going to go for 4 years without government, maybe even 8.

You all terrify me.

In the 5-novel "Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy" trilogy [that's right, a 5-novel trilogy] by Douglas Adams, the word "Belgium" was considered an obscenity.

When government is "down" in the US it means "non-essential services" shut down which often are decided arbitrarily. It makes you wonder why a service exists if its not needed. During shutdowns well over 80% of the government kept operating as normal. And those who didn't work got backpay for the period they didn't work.

Belgium is unamused.
