“Switzerland is a homogenous country/culture “
Well, sort of, but getting French, Germans and Italians to live together harmoniously does take SOME effort...;)
And you forget one other major item — it does not worship at the altar of the UN. Switzerland remains sovereign.

Thirty percent of their population is either immigrants, or children of immigrants.
Don't know what sort of agenda you are pushing, but please do it with facts.
I'm sorry, but Switzerland is anything BUT homogenous -- in fact it's one of the most diverse countries in Europe: it has 4 official languages: German, French, Italian and Rheatian and most people know at least 3 if not 4 and in addition would know English
It also is nearly evenly split between Catholics and Protestants and they had a civil war in the 1800s over this when the Protestant cantons invaded the Catholic ones
The German speakers also are not a monolithic bloc but see their individual dialects as separate
4.5% of residents are Moslems
