Yes, I think "no" can be used again and again without sounding ridiculous, like when you say in English (My grandmother's sister's daughter's mobile phone)

Also I am sure this alright in polite conversation (maybe someone could back me up on this??)

You asked whether 国 is required in the sentence, well, that depends on how obvious the context of your dialouge is, but it wouldn't be weird I think

I believe that you need 国 in this sentence, otherwise it sounds a bit strange; like you're talking about a minister that you own and keep in your pocket. :D

Yes true, I mean unless the topic of "differnt countries' ministers" has already been established, I think it would not be nessecary.

Nope. It sounds fine just like it is. =)

I guess.... Here is this stupid sentence I made:

Watashi no INU NO shikon no tama desu! This is my DOG'S FourSouls Jewel!

Image
"What do you mean, 'Dog?'" *squish*

By the way, even though it is InuYasha-ish and stupid, is the grammar correct? :)

EDIT-tsu: I couldn't understand the sentence because of all the kanji. X_x *dies*

I suggest you add a "Kore ha/wa" to the beginning, so you actually SAY "This is"... and it will make a bit more sense. But otherwise, it's fine.
