'''Basic Trope''': A character gives an example of how his/her culture is better than anyone else's.
* '''Straight''': Bob discusses how his nation of [[ThrowAwayCountry Tropestan]] has made numerous advances in the arts, medicine, science, math, literature, cooking, etc.
* '''Exaggerated''': Bob accentuates this by putting down some other nation/ethnic group/religion/etc. in his [[CharacterFilibuster rant]], no doubt invoking GodwinsLaw and [[NationalStereotypes a bunch of stereotypes]].
* '''Downplayed''': Bob has some traditional Tropestani equipment and training he's extremely proud of, but doesn't act as if everything good came out of Tropestan.
* '''Justified''': The discussion is a ''serious'' discussion about the history of Tropestan and its people.
* '''Inverted''': Bob discusses how [[CulturalCringe his nation of Tropestan]] [[SelfDeprecation sucks]].
* '''Subverted''':
** Bob discusses some awesome thing from Tropeland.
** When the matter of Tropestan comes up, Bob just shrugs and says it's as good as any other country.
* '''Double Subverted''':
** Then mentions with a wink and a smile (to Alice, whom he is trying to pick up) that ''he'' is a quarter Tropelandish.
** Until some {{Troll}} starts saying how Tropestan sucks, it's an ignorant backwards place full of hicks stuck in the DungAges, Tropestan did [[SinsOfOurFathers Some Terrible Thing 200 Years Ago]], etc. and Bob feels like he needs to defend ''his'' [[MyCountryRightOrWrong homeland]].
* '''Parodied''': Every other word from Bob's mouth (or fingertips if he's online) is "Tropestan"

* '''Invoked''': A {{Troll}} insults Tropestan
* '''Exploited''': ???
* '''Defied''': Bob decides not to rant back, believing that doing so only brings him down to the troll's level.
* '''Discussed''': "Yes, Tropestan is pretty cool. Now can we ''please'' move on?"
* '''Conversed''': "Why does every video I find here include a history lesson-cum-CavemenVersusAstronautsDebate in its comment thread?"
* '''Deconstructed''': There's a time and a place for nationalism, but [[UsefulNotes/MisplacedNationalism bringing it up in the wrong place and time]] comes across as being a JerkAss and causes a ''huge'' InternetBackdraft.
* '''Reconstructed''': Bob knows when it's OK to bring national pride and patriotism to the table, and when doing so would just make him look like a jingoist asshole, and only discusses Tropestan's achievements in appropriate contexts. (i.e. not on music videos on Website/YouTube)
* '''Played For Laughs''': Tropestan, portrayed by Bob as the [[MarySueTopia perfect country]]...[[DontExplainTheJoke doesn't even exist, nor did it ever.]]
* '''Played For Drama''': A FlameWar (or worse, an ''actual'' war) starts over Bob's rant.
