        There aren't really countries in that ride anyway, just cultures. There aren't flags or specific countries mentioned, only cultural and geographic references implied by the native costumes or architecture or topography.

              Don't forget the blond rope twirling Cowboy and the Native-American in full headdress in the final room! :lol:
              I guess that would be the USA.

                If by "America", you mean the United States, it most certainly is represented - there's a cowboy and native american there. If by "American" you mean "North America", or "South America", or "Latin America", well... you're just wrong.

                  And wikipedia has this on the attraction, it's countries and regions/cultures:

                  "At Disneyland, boats carrying the riders visit the regions of the world in separate rooms:
                  • The Hello Room, greets the guests to the attraction, showing different cultural greetings from around the world.
                  • The Scandinavia/North Pole room, with dolls representing Scandinavia, with the song sung in Swedish.
                  • Europe, with the song sung in German, English with a British English accent, Dutch, Spanish, French and Italian, as well as having a yodeler in the section representing Switzerland.
                  • Asia, with the song sung in Japanese.
                  • Africa, with the rhythm of the song marked with drums then sung in English.
                  • Latin America, with the song sung in Spanish.
                  • South Seas, with the song sung with an underwater gurgling sound by mermaids for the first section of the room (Disneyland and Disneyland Paris only), and traditional Polynesian versions of the song throughout the rest of the room.
                  • New Guinea, a small, relatively dark room with a rainforest scene and native drummers.
                  • The Finale Room, with representatives from all the cultures of the world dressed in white versions of their native costumes and singing in English in unison. A cowboy and American Indian standing together are the only dolls during the ride that represent the United States.
                  • The Goodbye room, showing different postcards and parting phrases from different cultures around the world."

                    ^ I was trying to bring back an old argument that America wasn't represented in Small World.

                    Guess not too many people remember that one.
