Oh, honey, you really were thinking about it.
First of all, my dear, Latin Hetalia is all fanmade. If there is any chararacter here is because someone come and said “HEY! I have an OC of this country that doesn’t have a character yet! I want to see if you people like it” And then was subjected to vote to be elected as a Latin Hetalia character. And I don’t think I need to clarify that nobody has to use them if they don’t like them, this has been said a lot times before. There are even OC whose aren’t the ones you usually see, as that beautiful Chile with long hair named Benjamin (I don’t remember who’s the owner) and they are popular.
Latinamerican is a many-sided term, isn’t it? But, honey, Latin Hetalia doesn’t only focuses in Latinamerican countries, because there are a Jamaica, Guyana, Surinam, and Belice OCs.
Humm, I didn’t know this Quebec issue with Canadá was so strong. But, let me give you an example: In my homeland, Venezuela, we have an state that also wants to be independent named Zulia. They are also like a country. But I still thinking about it as a part of Venezuela, and not all the zulian people want to “stick out” of Venezuela.
… Isn’t is the same in Canada? I’ve meet people from Quebec who are proudly canadian.
And, with Puerto Rico, well… you are messing with my baby. I love that girl, and the Estado Libre Asociado she represents. She was taked as a character because, in Centroamerica, Suramerica and El Caribe, we all think about Puerto Rico as something like a country. Puerto Rico’s history is mixed with our history, and that makes it something appart USA, whose history is pretty different in the beggining we all share.
… Are you saying that Mexico Brasil and Haiti recognize Quebec as an independent state? Hard to belive, because that would be a rude thing against Canadian goverment and here in the south we like Canada a lot. Or, well, I don’t know many things about North American politics.
If you are Canadian, or a Quebec citizen (or if you aren’t but you are interested) I would like to ask you about showing a Quebec OC, and explain to me (a common latinamerican girl) why should it be considered as a country, like with Puerto Rico.
