smiley - eureka

internment

Because the others have the words one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight and nine running through them, either forwards or backwards.

And because, having looked for a pattern determining whether it's forwards or backwards and not being able to see one, I thought it'd be best to have a word which had 'ten' either way smiley - biggrin So:

internment

O.L.S Whale [1-8+7+(3x7x2)=42] Quite disturbing in appearance, but harmless enough, I assure you!

It's Belgium, because it's always Belgium!

I'll go for Panama as all the others have had an Empire whereas Panama was purchased by another country.

OK, thanks - I thought I was on to something, but it would have taken a bit of research.

If the answer is correct, why does it matter whether it's what you were looking for? smiley - silly
That's like the problem with standardized intelligence tests...

I say Panama, because it doesn't have an 'i'.

South Africa because it's two words.

Belgium because it's the only one that doesn't end with a vowel (real or fake)

Nobody's really warm yet. Icy's warmest, perhaps... on account of 'current'.

Belgium is the only one currently famous for chocolate.





Italy, on the other hand, may be the only country that has almost nothing to do with the manufacturing process of chocolate... smiley - erm shot in the dark, this one.
