Erm, I think the Germans have been forced to repress the flag-waving, army-exporting, "We're better than everyone!" aspect of their culture, at the end of a gun, no less. IIRC, that attitude got them into quite a bit of trouble about 70-80 years ago.

When I visited England about 5 years ago, I noticed the plethora of roadway signs. There are warning signs for everything: deer crossing, duck crossing, rabbit crossing, frog crossing, tank crossing, Dalek crossing (I'm not kidding). There are even warning signs for warning signs:

Sign: "Warning, bumps ahead!"
Me: What are the bumps for?
Sign w/ bumps: "Warning, reduce speed to enter roundabout"
Me: Sheesh...
