    I've taken a look at Baltic tongues, they're quite interesting. The region socially and demographically is - I'm willing to bet - also quite favorable over Western Europe [these days], with a lot of traditional practices still alive. I guess all these factors all add up to the choice I made.

    Also, a language is very telling of a people.
    Lithuanians as a whole were the last Pagan country in Europe proper. As for heathenism, Maris are propably the last Europid nation who is still practising heathenism, but they're being heavily oppressed today and their whole culture is in danger.

    Europoid...

    Lithuania seems the most likely candidate, at least culturally. Quite interesting, this is very new to me. I might grab a few books on Lithuania from the public library and enlighten myself.

    Europid. And who opresses them?
    Europoid.

    ...The indigenous population of the Volga-Ural region is ethnically, historically, and culturally heterogenous. Ethnic groups of the region belong to different language groups including the Perm (Komi-Zyryans, Komi-Permyaks, Udmurts) and Volga-Finnish (Mordvinians, Mari) branches of the Ural language family and the Turkic branch of the Altaian language family (Bashkirs, Tatars, Chuvash). Anthropologically, these ethnic groups are Caucasian and have a varying Mongoloid component...

    Ukraine is not featured so i voted for Russia. They came from Eastern Europe like most historians have stated.

    Why? The actual origin matters more.

    Re: Which nation is most similar to original Indo-Europeans?

    Our fellow Maris are Europids - East-Baltids, Baltids, few Nordids, Uraloid admixtures. Saamis are mostly EuropOid, Maris are much more Europid, at least more than Portuguese or Greeks

    I said that because i did not mean culture, religion, language or anything that can be learned or unlearned. I am not so sure what you mean with that.

    This was a while ago, but when i designed this poll i could only include this many options. I do not think the Ukrainians are that close, being mostly Gorids, Pontids and Dinarids. I think the answer must be a nation in eastern or north-eastern Europe. So i think either Belarus, Latvia or Lithuania.

    The Visigoths were not the only germanic tribe to settle in Spain, also the Swabians (mostly in North-West Iberia), the Vandals, the Buri, Franks..
