Allow me to introduce myself. I am Roderich Edelstein, the Republic of Austria. Although not as glorious as I once was, I take great pride in the era of the Habsburg rule, a time of culture and elegance hard to find in these "modern" days.
I am optimistic by nature and take pleasure in many hobbies such as piano-playing and listening to works of the great composers, reading, ballroom dancing, visiting the museums of arts, light gardening, and relaxing in the afternoon with a nice cup of coffee.
Furthermore, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful former wife Elizaveta, the Nation of Hungary, who has faithfully stood by my side through many troubled times.
Although I may have been a little more rambunctious in my younger years, I am not fond of war and rather seek tranquility. I find the battlefield to be unsuitable for maintaining a proper cuisine, and I certainly endeavor to avoid all skirmishes during the March Concerts or the likes.
If you wish to converse with me in German I would be happy to oblige, after all it is my native language.
