In ex-Yugoslav countries 6/12 is used. I rather prefer short strips because it gives sense of more speed.
I have found, Italy has 4.5/7.5 at motorways, and 3/4.5 at expressways and normal roads. in tunnels there are 3/3. I was sure it was shorter.

i am reading Croatian law about horizontal signalization and they mention only width of the lines, not lenght

Spain used in the past 5/12 m and 10 cm wide lines, but recently it was changed into 6/11 and 15 cm wide lines. The line separating the right lane from the shoulder was changed from dashed to solid too.

For me the distance shouldn't just be of aesthetic reasons. The distance should be a function of the average speed - the higher this speed, the longer the stripes and intervals should be. At 80 km/h the Dutch 3-9 is fine, at 130 km/h the German markings are much more restful to the driver.
