From Russia With [40%] Love...

I suppose every currency comes with it's nations' idiosyncratic baggage. The Euro comes with the Italians, the Spanish, and Gallic intransigence, the Yen comes with Japan's need for consensus that makes any bold, or preemptive decision well-nigh impossible, while the Dollar brings with it America's national predilection for economic hope over financial preparation, or heaven-forbid, sacrifice. The Ruble, too, brings with it things distinctly Russian - amongst other things, a weakness and fascination with that parodied above.
