...which means we now have a good idea of what could have been for the current park (1979 and onwards)

Mexico
Russia
Denmark / Scandinavia / Norway
Costa Rica / China
Equitorial Africa / Africa
Spain
Germany
Switzerland
Italy
American Adventure
Japan
Israel 2
Morocco
--
France
United Kingdom
Israel 1
Canada

These are based on the final park design. Earlier versions had the larger World Showcase and although there is some blurring between versions, the likes of Venezuela and Australia are pre 1979. Which leaves the question of the UAE pavilion and the like. Pre or post 1979?

What if it were Brazil but it only had a restaurant or two and gift shops?

Let's hope they don't go cheap. There are some who feel that's enough. Works for UK, Morocco, Italy, and Germany, right? At least give Brazil a museum exhibit like Japan.
Are there any who feel compelled to go as far as an actual attraction or is it seeming more like show or just restaurants and shops?

Brazil makes sense. I think it'd be smart to include a South American country before a country from any other continent.
I'm sure it would be popular with the Brazilian Tour Groups. Nothing like flying several thousand miles to see... your home country... uh, wait...

Exactly.

I would guess seeing your country represented would bring a sense of pride.

I have a Norwegian heritage and I have a special connection to that pavilion because of that.

As irritating as the tour groups are, I'm pretty sure they would appreciate a Brazilian pavilion.
And perhaps the world-view of the rest of us would be broadened by a pavilion showcasing more than clapping, chanting, and green flags.

They'll have booze too.

Speaking of the American pavilion (piggybacking off of the American Adventure talk), is there a possibility of better, regional food being offered? Just looking at the menu choices makes me a little sad. Same question for better alcohol.

Things I am looking forward to (#3 should have been completed years ago):

1. Rat breaking ground (far away from IDF)
2. The little U.K. Attraction being built (if it fits thematically)
3. New country pavilion(s)

And Brazil can foot the bill for the pavilion? @WDW1974 seemed to imply that no new addition will be built without that. But we all know they don't *need* a sponsor. They're just cheap.
If they could afford a summer Olympic Games, there is a sponsor than can help out with a pavilion costing no more than $100,000,000. Unless they splurge for a boat ride.

By the way, as others have deduced but to put a fine point on it, Brazil is likely to be built. Let's hope it gets a ride.

Thanks for putting a fine point on it. I really hope that there is an attraction that goes with the pavilion. If it indeed gets built.
