This is ingenious!
I tried "lebanon" and almost all results on page 1 were lebanese people.

Nice hack! I was inspired to AJAXify and gadget-ize it:

Another version of the game is to enter

<nationality> man

into Image Search, like "Scottish man", "Russian man", "French man" etc.

somehow it tends to show the worst stereotypes imaginable.

Texas isn't listed? I'm offended.

And yes, we're our own country. It's a native thang.

And no, Bush isn't. He's a damned Yankee.

As you might have noticed, the approach I used was based on a list of existing country domains, which I don't determine. (By the way, any group that posts image content onto that country domain may thus also be represented in the search results... or any other domain for that matter, because as the form disclaims this approach does not always show people from that country.) Do you have suggestions for alternative or enhanced approaches? If you and Pokemo can provide me with working suggestions, I can try update the box.
