    France does I think. Germany comes as a close second, and I suppose then Italy.

    I'm suprised that no one has mentioned Hungary. Hungary has it all, Alpinids, Baltids, Dinarids, Norics, Gorids, Pontids, some Nordids (Swabian influence), and even some exotic Uralid and Turanid types. Due to it's location in the center of Europe many different peoples have left their influences on the Magyars.

    As for the most phenotypically homogeneous nation, I'd have to go with Finland and the Baltic states.

    Many nations are diverse inside in different ways with some releavant exeptions,but i think that Russia,Ukraina and the alpine nations are the most variegated...For example i find very hard to classify austrian people...

    France and Hungary. The east-centre of Europe, mostly.

    No country in Europe in which one language and one cultural tradition prevail shows a greater diversity of race between its southern and its northern extremities than does Italy. The binding element which is common to all sections is the Alpine, which has reëmerged from obscure beginnings through a superstructure composed of Dinaric, Nordic, and various kinds of Mediterranean accretions. Italy stands on the fence between the Alpine and Mediterranean worlds.

    I'm surprised no one yet mentioned England as a possibility. Honestly, this may be the most diverse country of Europe: it has them all. One can find its share of Nordids, pseudo-Meds (dark brits), CM (both reduced, Alpinids, and unreduced, mostly like Brünn), pseudo-Baltid (that is, depigmented and reduced CM), Dinariform types like the Bell-beaker Keltic-Nordid. Only Germany comes close to England, in my opinion, but the former lacks a strong Mediterranid component, which is present in the former. England has its share of weird, hard to classify types too.

    France virtually lacks a significant unmixed Nordid component, as well as Italy.

    * My use of the prefix pseudo- indicates the presence of subracial types approaching in appearance the one I use. Because I know Baltids or Gracile-Meds are not to be found in England, but Baltiform and Mediform types are.

    Racially, the most heterogenous country is Hungary in Europe!

    When we (Hungarians) travel to other European countries, we think that every country is more homogenous than we are! Your peoples has a lot of types with a little differency. In Hungary there is a lot of ancient European types mixed with turanid, pamirid uralid.. etc. types, and there is a significant differency between these subraces!

    I agree Hungary is varied.

    However East-Alpinids and Pontids did predominate. After that Dinarics and Nordids, but less in numbers. Very few East-Baltid looking people. There were many gypsies. Other countries must be more varied in terms of colouring because blondism was not absolutely common and red hair very rare.

    Anyway I vote for Germany based on nothing more than gut feeling. Nordic in the north, then into Alpine & Norid-Dinarid territory in the south (but still plenty of Nordids everywhere), Faelids, Borrebies, even Baltids in the East.

    France is a good call though especially in terms of shape, because you have low/long skulled Atlanto-Meds as well as high/short skulled Norids/Dinarids. And short-statured Alpinids.
