Stereotype: <<The Swiss like things clean.>>
Before the days of modern Singapore, Switzerland was hailed as the paragon of clean countries. The Swiss like things clean and they do everything they can to keep spotless streets, restaurants and offices. People who want to put a TV antenna on their roof must ask the local council for authorization because it could make the neighborhood look bad. A French phrase sums up how the Swiss prefer things: Propre en ordre (clean – in order).
