Main Characters

Axis Powers

Flag of Italy.svg Italy (イタリア Itaria?)
Voiced by Daisuke Namikawa in Japanese and Todd Haberkorn in English. As a child he is voiced by Aki Kanada in Japanese and Brina Palencia in English.

The title character of the series. He is an energetic and friendly yet clumsy young man, who also happens to be rather cowardly and obsessed with pasta. He is the grandson of Ancient Rome who was once the strongest nation in the world, as well the younger brother of Romano (South Italy). When in trouble, he often cries for Germany's help or insists on surrendering. Though he is bad at fighting, his creativity in art and trade is strong, and he is also a very good cook. The strange hair curl on the left side of his head acts as an erogenous zone for him when pulled.

Flag of Germany.svg Germany (ドイツ Doitsu?)
Voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto in Japanese and Patrick Seitz in English.

A strict and rule-abiding soldier type, Germany was the one to discover Italy hiding in the crate of tomatoes in the middle of WWI (originally oranges in the webcomic version) when they were enemies. He later became allies with Italy, the two growing closer despite their differences. Due to his tendency to over-rely on manuals for orderliness, he finds himself running into trouble whenever there's a misunderstanding. He has a secret passion for baking cake and making sweets and is also suggested to be a closet pervert.

Flag of Japan.svg Japan (日本 Nihon, Nippon?)
Voiced by Hiroki Takahashi in Japanese and Christopher Bevins in English. As a child he is voiced by Ai Iwamura in Japanese and Alexis Tipton in English.

The third and final major member of the Axis Powers, recruited by Germany. He is mysterious and quiet, as well as hard-working. Though he looks to be the youngest of the main three, he is in fact the oldest and acts accordingly with the behavior of an old man. He answers "No" in ambiguous and indirect ways, and he is rarely shown to be volatile in the series, though it is said that if enough pressure builds up, he can become very "scary" in his rage. His hobby is to read the atmosphere, assess situations, and act carefully. He has a weakness for 2D erotica and geek culture, as well as small animals.

Allied Powers

Flag of the United States.svg America (アメリカ Amerika?)
Voiced by Katsuyuki Konishi in Japanese and Eric Vale in English. As a child he is voiced by Ai Iwamura in Japanese and Luci Christian in English.

A loud, energetic type of man who occasionally intrudes upon other people's business. He is obsessed with superheroes and hamburgers, and thinks nothing of eating strangely-colored candies and cakes (which disturbs Japan). He has a strange phobia of ghosts, but is friends with an alien, Tony, who lives with him. He is the youngest of the Allied Forces in human and nation age, and their self-declared leader in the WWII strips that make up the main storyline. The strange crescent-shaped lock of hair on his head represents Nantucket, while his glasses are Texas.

Flag of the United Kingdom.svg United Kingdom / England (イギリス Igirisu?)
Voiced by Noriaki Sugiyama in Japanese and Scott Freeman and Taliensin Jaffe in English.

The cynical, foul-mouthed, estranged mentor figure to America. He used to be a pirate before he settled down into his "gentleman" role. His most noticeable physical features are his thick eyebrows. England is also well-versed in black magic and can see mythical creatures that others can't, which causes the other nations to think of them as his hallucinations. He has a bad relationship with France, which has stemmed as far back as their childhood years.

Though he is technically the United Kingdom (as evidenced by his flag), he is often referred to as simply England in most translations (though merchandise refers to him as UK, due to the Japanese word Igirisu being used for both terms). Himaruya has confirmed that he represents both the UK and England, he is officially known as the UK to other nations, with the exception of his brothers (identified as Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland).

Flag of France.svg France (フランス Furansu?)
Voiced by Masaya Onosaka in Japanese and J. Michael Tatum in English.

Proud and dangerously affectionate, France has been involved in a strong rivalry with England for the longest time. He can often be seen making inappropriate advances on others or streaking, and is said to fall in love with anything that is beautiful, even if it is not human. France is very proud of his art and culture, to the point where he is stubborn to learn languages other than his own. He considers himself to be a "big brother", and grew his beard to look more like one.

Flag of Russia.svg Russia (ロシア Roshia?)
Voiced by Yasuhiro Takato in Japanese and Jerry Jewell in English.

A large, intimidating nation with a simplistic and easygoing personality, yet has the cruelty of a child deep down. Russia has mentally cracked from his history of war and bloodshed, however, he is unaware of his own aforementioned cruel tendencies. His greatest dream is apparently to eventually live in a warm place with sunflowers. During WWII, he had many other nations living under him as the Soviet Union, including the Baltics and his two sisters. He considers vodka to be his fuel, and is almost always shown wearing the scarf that his older sister Ukraine gave him.

Flag of the People's Republic of China.svg China (中国 Chūgoku?)
Voiced by Yuki Kaida in Japanese and Clarine Harp in English.

A young-looking hermit that is one of the oldest apparent nations in the series (out of the main cast), and the self-proclaimed eldest "brother" to the other Asian characters, though Japan does not think of him as one in turn. He has an easy-going demeanor, and has a fondness for food and cute things, though the characters he creates are often bootlegged versions of other countries' ones (such as Hello Kitty and Disney mascots). It also appears that China is very wary of Russia.

In the original Japanese version, he has a tendency to end his sentences with the "-aru" suffix, a trait that Japanese people tend to stereotypically associate with Chinese accents.


Western Europe

Flag of Austria.svg Austria (オーストリア Osutoria?)
Voiced by Akira Sasanuma in Japanese and Chuck Huber in English. As a child he is voiced by Aki Kanada in Japanese.

A young master who loves the piano. He was born to fight, yet was too weak as a child and often had to be assisted in battles by his friend Switzerland, until they had a falling-out. Despite his high class appearance, he is very frugal. His history was marked by many marriages, including one to Hungary (referencing the Austro-Hungarian Compromise) and one to Spain (referencing the union of the countries in the House of Habsburg). He helped raise the younger Italy when he became property of the Holy Roman Empire.

Flag of Belgium (civil).svg Belgium (ベルギー Berugī?)
Voiced by Eriko Nakamura in Japanese and Amanda Doskocil in English.

A young woman who found success early in life, and for a time was ruled by Spain. Despite this, she maintained a positive attitude, and is occasionally shown helping Spain raise Romano after he becomes his property. After a falling out with her brother, they attempted to reconcile by joining together as the Kingdom of the Netherlands, but but their differences were too great and she decided to declare her independence from him. In the present day she appears to remain good friends with both Netherlands and Spain.

Flag of Liechtenstein.svg Liechtenstein (リヒテンシュタイン Rihitenshutain?)
Voiced by Rie Kugimiya in Japanese and Cherami Leigh in English.

The adoptive younger sister of Switzerland, who once lived a difficult life after WWI ended and she was left in a crisis. She is incredibly grateful to Switzerland and often dresses like him to show her appreciation. Due to being mistaken as a boy by a civilian, she wears a purple ribbon in her hair. As she has no army of her own, she relies on her older brother to take care of those affairs, though he attempts to teach her how to defend herself.

Flag of Luxembourg.svg Luxembourg (ルクセンブルク Rukusenburuku?)

The younger brother of Netherlands and Belgium who exudes elegance. He has a friendly personality, and speaks in a very polite and proper manner. He is an extremely busy person, sometimes to the point where he has to forgo social events to attend business matters.

He owns a large dog named Pelutze due to his country's abundance of films with dogs in them.

The older brother of Belgium who grew up with little wealth. After seeing the way his sister lived, he becomes stingy with money and focuses on business. He came under the control of Spain, and the relationship between the two of them was difficult until he ultimately left and declared his independence.

Civil Ensign of Switzerland (Pantone).svg Switzerland (スイス Suisu?)
Voiced by Romi Park in Japanese and John Burgmeier in English.

A xenophobic and reclusive former mercenary who is overprotective of his Alps, and has depended on his banking system in order to thrive. He is described as the "eternal neutral" country and is trigger-happy, shooting at those who'd dare cross his lawns.

Flag of Estonia.svg Estonia (エストニア Esutonia?)
Voiced by Atsushi Kousaka in Japanese and Mike McFarland in English.

The studious one of the three Baltic states, who is really into computers and allegedly has the most luck in avoiding Russia and problems due to his wit (though this conflicts with Estonia's actual unlucky history).

The youngest of the Nordics, he is a mysterious boy with a cool exterior, though it is said that he is hot-blooded and passionate deep down.

Voiced by Jun Konno in Japanese and Chris Cason in English.

The childhood love of Italy, whom he had mistaken for a girl. Due to his infatuation with Italy, he wished to make him join with him to become as powerful as Rome, though Italy refuses. While he appeared strong, he had a weak constitution due to infighting between Austria and other domains under his rule. Soon after, he threw himself into long periods fighting in the Thirty Years War, and presumably died as a result.
