i do not "love" my country. i am not sure that it is possible for me to really "love" any country. you can find good things and bad things anywhere. and a country is made up of too many different parts (nature, landscape, weather, infrastructure, culture(s), society, politics, economy...) to love or hate all of them.
being german, i was brought up in a very non-patriotic environment. i would even say patriotism was a kind of taboo (due to our country's history), at least until 2006, when germany hosted the world cup and people suddenly started putting up flags (something i'd never seen here before in public!) and painting their faces in the colors of the german flag. that's when things started to change a bit. nowadays it's far more common to hear german people say they're proud of their country.
i am not proud of being german, firstly because it is not an achievement to be proud of, i just happened to be born here, and secondly because i don't feel superior to anyone else just because of my nationality. rather than feeling "german" i was raised as a european, with the feeling of being part of something bigger, united with different cultures and languages, which i've always had a great interest in.
i think germany is (still) a very good country to live in. it's relatively safe, relatively democratic, relatively well run, with a relatively high standard of living. but it might not be like this forever... who knows. the current developments (not only in germany but in many countries, unfortunately) aren't very promising.
and i often feel like the values that some germans are still so proud of (honesty, diligence, order, reliability, accuracy, discipline, prudence, tolerance...) are disappearing, which is sad.
i've also lived in italy, and as much as i miss it when i am not there, there also are a lot of things i don't like and that would drive me crazy if i lived there again.
i guess it would be nice to have several places to live, in different countries, and move every few months, so you can enjoy the nice things a country has to offer, and leave before the negative aspects make you too depressed.
no place is perfect, there are just too many aspects to consider.
