Uncle Sam's real name is Samuel Wilson, born on September 13, 1766 in Massachusetts. He was a slaughterer and supplier of beef to the US military barracks. His beef bins are all stamped with "US" outside, implicitly referred to as Uncle Sam. Later the official "US" was used to abbreviate the American name - The United States of America.

3.Ireland - "Emerald Island"

4.Iceland - "Land of fire and ice"
The name tell everythings. Adjacent to the cold and remote northern and northern rings, the population density is only 3.1 people / sq. Km. The nickname "The Land of Fire and Ice" comes from two opposite polarities that coexist closely in a narrow range of "Ice Island": welding and heat, heat and cold, fire and ice, lava and wind snow. The combination between the cold glaciers, alternating hot springs and countless craters waiting for eruption created geographical features for Iceland as well as this very proud nickname. 

5.Chile - "Land of poets"
What makes the South American nation own this honor? Chile is the birthplace of countless poetic geniuses, helping the country win two noble literary prizes and unique literary treasures. Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Paolo Neruda were honored to receive the Nobel Prize and were recognized as the "Best 20th Century Poet". The poet Nicanor Parra pioneered against every principle in poetic writing; and it was that disruption that won him the 2011 Cervantes award - the most prestigious award for the Spanish literary category. Two authors Enrique Lihn and Jorge Teillier used poetry as a tool to encourage freedom of speech and thinking during the second half of the twentieth century. A series of the above achievements are only a minority in countless contributions of literary poetry that the "Land of the poet" has created for the world literary treasure.

7. South Africa - "Rainbow Land"
South Africa was one of the countries most severely affected by racial discrimination. But today, South Africa is proud to "makeover" into a multi-ethnic, multicultural and multi-religious nation. It is this colorful openness that helps South Africa get the name "Rainbow Land", originating from Archbishop Desmond Tutu. In Xhosa culture, the image of a rainbow symbolizes hope and a bright future is beckoning ahead. 

8. Laos - "The Land of Things"
In 1354, King Pha Ngom named Lan Xang Kingdom of Laos, translating to mean "million elephants". Surrounding Luang Frabang capital at that time was "headquarters" of thousands of thousands of elephants. Elephants serve as transport, combat service and the main means of transport of members of the Royal Kingdom of Laos. It is the characteristics of dense forests and sparse population density that have created a favorable environment for Asian elephants in Laos, as well as the origin of the very name - "The Land of Things".
