The central character of the book Juan Rico was I believe from Argentina. Totally off the Topic- The Posleen Wars novels (John Ringo an others) would make a great background for a Game.

In the movies, he's said to be an Argentine because he was to be played by a White actor. In the book, he's a Filipino. There's some confusion, since his mother is killed in the bombing of Buenos Aires, but she was visiting there, not a resident.

Heinlein was a Naval Academy graduate and had served in the Philippines and knew and admired Filipinos.
