What pronoun should we use for a country? It? Why sometimes I hear "she"?

It is used in formal style but she isn't really wrong if you want to wax a little poetic.

CB is probably correct. Still, I think we would use she/her situations more formal than casual conversation. "France has always been proud of her language."

N.B. She is also quite often used to refer to a ship.

Hi,

A related point is that some countries are occasionally referred to as the 'motherland' or the 'fatherland'.
