    • o League of Arab States
    • Countries with similar governmental structures, for example:
      • o Democracies
      • o Theocracies
      • o Dictatorships
      • Countries colonized by the same country, for example:
        • o India, Ghana, & Belize were all colonized by the United Kingdom and share similar cultural bonds, such as sports
        • In some instances, the country that colonized your country, for example:
          • o Brazil & Portugal
          • Countries in the same developmental stage:
            • o Developed, developing, & underdeveloped
