Last July, French President Jacques Chirac stunned England by jokingly commenting to Russian and German leaders, "One cannot trust people whose cuisine is so bad." No prizes for guessing which nation he was talking about.

没有奖金?

我的理解:

猜中了也没奖品,因为这是很明显的事实,也就是说大家都知道他影射的是哪个国家。
提供奖品的竞猜一般都有些难度,不然就没有意思了。

所以我个人认为这句话可译为:“不难猜出他影射的是哪个国家。”
