This book is beyond hilarious, it takes political satire to a whole new level - along with cultural stereotypes, but it was still really funny! I laughed all the way through! I love the anthropomorphic allegory in which each nation is a character in the story, it just makes it all the funnier to see watch the character development. The actions and developments were exponentially funnier because it is all parody. My personal favorite was Finland showing up at the end dressed as Santa Claus... I also busted up laughing when England used his witchcraft to summon up a 'terrifying creature of monstrous size from the pits of hell, with the power to destroy America', and accidentally summoned Russia... ha ha!
