Blitz is a game of 2 parts:

Part 1) Low tiers, Tier I to Tier IV 
Part 2) High tiers, Tier V to Tier X


I would STRONGLY advise new players to fully research ALL of the low Tier (I to IV) tanks before taking out a Tier V.  Tier V is a big shock for new players, especially when facing Tier VI tanks like the KV-2 for the first time!
So IMO this process of picking a nation to start from should be done TWICE - once at Tier I, and once at Tier V.

Recommended Playing Order of Nations:


Low Tiers (I-IV):
1) France (slow tanks, heavy armour, take hits and survive)
2) USA (fast tanks with decent armour)
3) UK (both fast and slow tanks, autoloaders, Matilda is slow but has very heavy armour)
4) Russia (fast tanks, but not much armour)
5) Germany (very varied, some fast, some average, some well armoured, some not)
6) Japan (average speed, good gun depression, very poor armour)
7) China (mixture of tanks like those from other nations)


High Tiers (V-X)
1) Russia (great armour and big guns)
2) China (very similar to Russian tanks)
3) USA (good all-rounders, good gun depression)
4) UK (mix of very slow heavy tanks and TDs, and fairly fast mediums and turreted TDs, small accurate guns)
5) France (guns and mobility gradually get better and better, but armour gradually gets worse and worse)
6) Germany  (very varied, some fast, some average, some well armoured, some not)
7) Japan (mediums with accurate guns and good gun depression, but very poor armour)


So at Tier I, start with the French, and work your way through to Japan and China.  At Tier V, start with Russia and/or China, then proceed from USA through to Japan at the end.  


Hope this is useful!
