Poland has to pick a nation and accept 3 million people of that nation - who do you choose

I was thinking about the unusual situation of pre-war Poland where we had a huge Jewish minority, mostly unassimilated and culturally distinguishable from the rest of society.

So I had this crazy idea: what if some higher power said: "Listen you Poles, I order you to invite in 3 million aliens - all of the same nationality - or your country will be nuked!". Let's say the threat is real and you can freely choose whoever you want - all are dying to live among the Poles - who would you pick?

French women.

This guy is on the right idea lol.

Take some women from Italy, Russia, Britain, France, Germany, whatever.
3 million no problem :)

I would go for some South Americans, like Brazilians, or Argentinians. They could help some Poles not to be so dense :)

No, you have to go 50-50, both men and women. And one nation only!

Saudis. They're nice and have a similar way of thinking to Poles.

I think that's the easy way - most probably they would integrate smoothly, as they are in many aspects similar and likeable to Poles.

But my vote goes to Japanese. The road to integration would probably be much more bumpier, but the prize greater: a new super race! :D Seriously, I think we have many complementary qualities, we would learn from each other and the mix would be the bomb!

You never know. They all could die out during the first Polish winter :)

Brazilians - to improve our football.

or

Vietnamese - lots of forests in Poland, they would make excellent territorial defence/partisans in case sh*t hit the fan.

or

Irish - they are a lost tribe of Poles anyway.

or

Israelis - just to make Adolf turn in his grave.

or

Hungarians - self-explanatory.

or

Scots, Germans, Dutch, Russians, Nigerians, Eskimos - just bring in 3 million people of any nationality.
We could use some diversity. It's too boring the way it is now ;-)

Well if the Chinese workers building the roads mess it up, Poland should keep them and make them fix it up.

Somebody picked your brain ? I would have nuked your anonymous power.

Look, enough of diversity!

I nearly crashed my car today when driving - I was driving through your very average communist roundabout in a very average communist suburban part of town - when I spotted some very, very black guy, dressed like a stereotypical rapper, with a load of suitcases.

Wish I'd stopped now and asked him where the hell he was going, it was just.....strange :P

Greeks is a good idea for Poland.You would get some flexibility and a role in politics and commerce.However I think Poles would choose another slavic nation(Ukrainians,Belarussians) as they do now.
