Classification System for Nations, using (PADA) Macken-Tiscoate – Part I

The PADA Macken-Tiscoate method for grouping nations – ignoring race, culture and other such typical means – is based upon the well-known (though controversial) categories developed using PADA Macken-Tiscoate taxonometric classification:


A

Algeria, Australia, Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Andorra, Antigua & Barbuda, Austria, Angola

A is for arid. These nations are dry, on the whole. As the capital letter A suggests, these nations have many peaks, and are noted for being mountainous. Politically, the opinion of an A country – the letter resembles the sound of an uncertain interjection – is typically crushed or dismissed within international bodies, most often by the U countries.


B

Bahamas, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belarus, Belgium, Belize, Benin, Bhutan, Bolivia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Burkina Faso, Burundi

There are many B nations. Typically hot and poor nation, occasionally with stunning biodiversity, these are emerging from poverty of the masses towards a brighter bubblier future (fuelled by raw material trades).

Exceptions proving the general rule: The Bel nations subgroup of Belgium (see also Belgian Congo, Rape of), Belarus and Bulgaria are cooler, damper and flatter.



C

Cambodia, Cameroon, Canada, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, Chile, China, Colombia, Comoros, Congo (Democratic Republic of), Congo (Republic of), Costa Rica, Croatia, Cuba, Cyprus, Czech Republic

Hot, often densely-populated countries on the second tier of development, with a propensity to cluster along warm water coastlines and Equatorial regions. Abundant and exotic wildlife, varied.

Exception proving the general rule: The North C grouping of Canada, Czech Republic and China pride themselves on a cooler climate and collectivism.


D

Denmark, Djibouti, Dominica, Dominican Republic

D countries are noteworthy for small size, hot climate and aquaphilia: indeed, if the ratio of coastline to landmass was any sort of barometer of might, these nations would rule the world. They do not, however, and so D countries must content themselves with abundant coastline and a climate to suit it.

Exception proving the general rule: Denmark (but only for the climate – the D countries really do love the water.)


Next up in this series, we continue with Part II, the E countries all the way to the I cluster of nations.
