What if the Gods don't play politics?

Every time I hear someone ask God to bless America, it makes the philosopher in me wonder if God (or Goddess) actually plays politics or has favorites among countries.

It seems more plausible to me that a Supreme Being or Beings would find our little human countries quaint and amusing, at least until the bloodshed begins and then our little geographic and ethnic fiefdoms must seem destructive and unnecessary.

Unless the Gods are vengeful and warlike and quarrel among themselves like the Gods of ancient Greece.
