Which Country is Heaven the Most Like?
I'm thinking it probably isn't like a desert or a barren waste. Is it something like England, but without the rain? I'm guessing it wouldn't be like London though. Or is it like Africa? Or maybe like Japan? When mystics visited Heaven in visions, what did they say it was like - or did they never think to describe it? Thanks.

There is no such place: New Zealand, Southeast Australia (like Tasmania and Melbourne), the Scandinavian countries, Switzerland and maybe France and the US (depending on the state ! ) come nearest/closest.,,depending what you are looking for

Heaven is exactly what you imagine it to be.. because that's where it exists..in the fertile imaginations of profoundly superstitious, gullible fools..

The overall impression that the Bible gives of heaven is awe-inspiring. (Ezekiel 43:2, 3) Nevertheless, it is not possible for humans to comprehend heaven fully, since the spirit realm is beyond our senses.
The Bible’s answer
The word “heaven” is used in three basic senses in the Bible: (1) the physical heavens; (2) the spirit realm; and (3) a symbol of a high or exalted position. In each case, the context helps determine the correct understanding. *
The physical heavens. In this sense, “the heavens” refers to earth’s atmosphere, where the winds blow, the birds fly, the clouds produce rain and snow, and the lightning flashes. (Psalm 78:26; Proverbs 30:19; Isaiah 55:10; Luke 17:24) It can also mean outer space, the location of “the sun and the moon and the stars.”—Deuteronomy 4:19; Genesis 1:1.
The spirit realm. The term “heaven” also refers to the spiritual heavens, or spirit realm, a level of existence higher than and outside of the physical universe. (1 Kings 8:27; John 6:38) These spiritual heavens are occupied by Jehovah God, who is “a Spirit,” as well as by the angelic spirit beings whom he created. (John 4:24; Matthew 24:36) At times, “the heavens” are personified to represent the faithful angels, “the congregation of the holy ones.”—Psalm 89:5-7.
The Bible also uses “heavens” to refer specifically to the portion of the spirit realm where Jehovah actually resides, his “dwelling place.” (1 Kings 8:43, 49; Hebrews 9:24; Revelation 13:6) For example, the Bible foretold that Satan and the demons would be thrown out of heaven, no longer being allowed to enter Jehovah’s presence. However, they would remain in the spirit realm.—Revelation 12:7-9, 12.
A symbol of a high or exalted position. The Scriptures use “heaven” to represent an elevated position, usually in connection with ruling authority. Such a position could be occupied by:
Jehovah God himself as the almighty Sovereign.—2 Chronicles 32:20; Luke 15:21.
God’s Kingdom, the government that will replace human rule. The Bible refers to that Kingdom as the “new heavens.”—Isaiah 65:17; 66:22; 2 Peter 3:13. *
Christians who, while on earth, have the hope of going to heaven.—Ephesians 2:6.
Human governments that have exalted themselves over their subjects.—Isaiah 14:12-14; Daniel 4:20-22; 2 Peter 3:7.
Wicked spirits who now rule over the world.—Ephesians 6:12; 1 John 5:19.
What is heaven like?
The spirit realm is a hive of activity. It is occupied by hundreds of millions of spirit creatures “who carry out [Jehovah’s] word.”—Psalm 103:20, 21; Daniel 7:10.
The Bible describes heaven as being brilliantly lighted. (1 Timothy 6:15, 16) The prophet Ezekiel received a heavenly vision marked by “brilliant light,” while the vision of heaven that Daniel saw included “a stream of fire.” (Ezekiel 1:26-28; Daniel 7:9, 10) Heaven is holy, or clean, and beautiful.—Psalm 96:6; Isaiah 63:15; Revelation 4:2, 3.

My guess is that it's most like the Republic of Molossia.
I'm sure you'll figure out why.

Heaven is not a physical place. England without the rain wouldn't be the green and fertile place it is - and Africa is not a country.
