So for example all the russian zombies could have some form of drunken power, giving them a constant -2 to be hit because they move so erratic.

French zombies could smell like cheese gone very bad, represented as an aura that causes a nauseating condition.
So, obnoxious stereotypes do seem to have been indicated. Tacky, yes, but they appear to have been requested.

If you prefer, German zombies wear socks with sandals, and tend to infest sandy beaches.

If we wish to get all pedantic, that style of salute was common in the U.S. when pledging allegiance to the flag, pre-WWII.

As far as I know, my brother is not German.
(Oh, crap. We are. Our mother's maiden name is Beeler.)

We need to use stereotypes that most people would instantly recognize. Hideous fashion sense is far too common among we white men to nationalize.

German-American is by far the most common American subtype in the USA. I'll just leave that here for speculation without comment.

British zombies stop for a tea break every hundred yards and go on strike if they run out of sugar.

I thought sweet tea was an American thing. Or is that just stupidly painfully sweet tea?
