    I'm quite certain it's a danish uniform. The uniform I wore when I served as a Guardsmen looks nearly identical. I could be wrong though, but it just looks remarkably similar.

In view of our divine essence, we need only liberty and work; in view of our mortal nature, we need for our direction a guide and a support. A government is not then, as a distinguished economist has said, a necessary ulcer; it is rather the beneficent motive power of all social organisation.
