Hetalia: Axis Powers
“In heaven, the cooks are French, the engineers are German, the bankers are Swiss, and the slaves are Korean.”
Hetalia is a portmanteau combining the words hetare meaning 'gutless coward bastards' with the word Italy. This is due to how the Japanese percieve Italy: A country dragged by Germany into a war it wasn't ready for nor obligated to fight. Italy's surrender to and subsequent fight alongside the Allies is looked upon by admiration by the Japanese, a fine example of a people coming together to fight their brutal Fascist government. The Hetalia animated TV show (rated TV-MA) was first released on a Japanese kids channel and was forced off the air by the Korean government. Fuck You Korea. Hetalia deals with the everyday lives of countries, their hopes, fears, and that petty squabble between the Axis and the Allies.

Sealand: No country is too small to avoid Hetalia's comedic sting. Sealand, portrayed as a blond, blue-eyed boy in a sailor's outfit, is a principality consisting of 4 British citizens on a raised floating platform five miles off the English coast. Its mention in Hetalia has prompted numerous nations to reconsider Sealand's admission into the UN security council.
