18 would be no problem. Off the top of my head:
USA
Canada
Australia
New Zealand
Holland
Germany
Belgium
France
Japan
Hong Kong
China
Brazil
UK (or is it separated into the four countries, so England?)
Poland
Greece
Finland
Korea

There are tons more in the database.

EDIT: I only got 17, another would be... Hungary!

The Chinese tried to get 'paper scissors rock' as their guest sport in this years olympics, so speedcubing in the olympics may be a possibility, although I don't think they should do it.
why would they get rock paper scissors as an event? that's like luck :O
and I would definately participate when im 15

Paper usually works.
Speedcubing is an awesome sport, don't know why it isn't in the olympics and walking is? They probably never will have it, but if they do in London 2012 expect me there.
You have to represent your country... which is pretty hard.
By then all the other UK cubers will be older and have jobs, I will be cubing still 24/7.

If it was going to be in the olympics, it would have to be in the academic olympics. Im sure that they would accept it as an event their since it is all about using your brain with puzzles/problems :)

:eek:
Fortunately there is a flash game that has the x beats y matrix encoded. It would take quite a while to lurn the rules of those games, especically for the 101 variation :fp

The first variation looked like a 3x3x3 evolving into a 4x4x4, 5x5x5, 6x6x6, 7x7x7, etc. But those latest variations are just like some of our online 5D-120-interconnected-gazillionminxes
