Romania is the ninth largest country in the southeast of Europe. Its capital and largest city is Bucharest, the tenth largest city in the EU, with a population of around two million. Before 2007 it was a communist country but now it is a member of the EU and is democratic. In the 2000's Romania was one of the highest economic growth rates in Europe and has been referred to as "the Tiger of Eastern Europe."

Romania has many technologies that make it unique. In flight, Traian Vuia made the first airplane to take off on its own power and Aurel Vlaicu built and flew some of the earliest successful aircrafts. Also in 2008, some 245,308 automobiles were produced in Romania, up from 78,146 in 2000. During the Communist period, Romania was one of the largest automobile producers in Central and Eastern Europe; but the industry declined after the 1989 revolution.

The main symbol of Romania would be their flag. It has three vertical stripes of blue, red, and yellow. The blue symbolizes truth and loyalty, the red symbolizes bravery and strength, and the yellow symbolizes generosity. The main language in Romania is, obviously, Romanian but other than that the most frequently spoken languages are Hungarian, Romani, Ukrainian, and German.

One of Romania's biggest values is religion. According to the 2002 census, 86.7% of the citizens are Orthodox Christian and it's always a big part of everyone's lives. For norms, an important folkway is that you should always kiss on both cheeks when greeting someone because it's the polite thing to do. This is also done in many other European countries. A more would be no forced labor. This is a more because during the wars children and Jews were made slaves.

Overall Romania is a well-developed country with a great automotive industry and strong values. The meaning of the colors of their flag tells a lot about the country as a whole and religion is very important to them.
