It's not the nation, but the order of dress. I could live without ever seeing boards filled with gray, brown or beige overcoats again.

For bland uninspiring uniforms you would have to go a long way to beat the post-1807 Prussians (I know they were broke and all, but still – - -)

White pants. Disagree? Try wearing white pants in the field, then get back to me.

Austrians are the hardest to paint IMO, but the Prussians are so drab that I don't even want to paint them.

You can at least tell the Prussian regiments apart. As far as I'm concerned, you lose part of the joy of miniatures when every regiment starts wearing the same uniform like late Napoleonic French line. In my experience, there's a tendency to refer to French line by manufacturer rather than regimental number. Everyone can see they're Staddens or Connoisseurs, but you have to be told that they're the 57th Line.

But Russians have those shako cords, my vote ( though don't have any) are Austrians, maybe of all the allies I do have and don't it's a good pick.
