Which country should be in the gap?

And in 1936 W. Churchill  replied to Von Ribbentrop,'You must not underrate _. She is a curious country, and few foreigners can understand her mind.'

Is this a test?  The first is India -which was a British Colony at the time. The second is Russia which Churchill was very worried about at the time since Stalin had still not decided which way it would go in the war. And the the third is England herself - and who would know better than Churchill himself.

 

How did I do? :)
