What exactly makes a person born as a “Nation”, a “Micronation”, or a “State” is unknown, as if someone is born one of these three “races” of personification, they are usually born from the same type of union: that of a Nation and a human, with notable exceptions like Hawaii being the child of two Nations. There is some belief that the circumstance of the birth could somehow determine which type of personification the child will become, with “Nation” children often being born to essentially act as their Nation parent’s heir (or heirs, as was the case with the Italy twins, Romano and Veneziano), being born close (in Nation years, meaning several centuries could pass before they die) to the ends of their lives, though this is only a theory based on the fact that the discovery of the children Nations often came soon (again in Nation terms) before the death of the parent. What causes a State to be born is still completely unknown, as other than the original thirteen Colonies, all of whom claim to have been born to human parents (meaning they had both a human mother and father, an extreme rarity for personifications), were fathered by America, a Nation.
America often brings his younger children to the World Conferences, which usually results in the meetings taking much, much, much longer than originally planned. The issue isn’t usually that the States cause trouble (though Idaho did once spend an entire conference attempting to get “Uncle Germy” to play horsey, while the Dakotas tried to draw England’s eyebrows on everyone who’d fallen asleep during the meeting), but rather the fact that some of the Nations get distracted by the young children. Hungary, Spain, and Veneziano are the most frequent “victims” of the States’ cuteness, though it never takes much to get Romano, Russia, Poland, the Baltics, England, or France to play a little game. Even Germany has occasionally indulged the little ones in a game, especially Idaho, who he seems to have a slight bond with.
1.) Unlike most of the other Nations, who were raised by either humans or by older nations, whether their guardians were their biological parents or not, China was raised by an animal until he was physically a toddler, similar to how Ancient Rome spent his infancy raised by wolves. China’s infancy guardian was a dragon, and that same dragon is currently China’s “high boss”, the person he goes to for really important advice, rather than the head of his country.
2.) China is one of the few Nations who has actually been to school, rather than just have a single person teach them how to read, write, trade, and how to lead their country, though his teaching was more for calligraphy and martial arts than the type of school most children would go to, even back when China would have physically been a child.
3.) China is completely sterile, but truly wants to have a child. He preferred to think of Japan as his adopted son, rather than his little brother, and continued to think of Japan as a son even after the younger Nation betrayed him. Honestly, he thinks of most of the younger East Asian Nations as being adopted children of his, including the Korea twins, even if South annoys the living crap out of him. His little panda is his surrogate child.
1.) Out of the two brothers, Romano is the only one who actually remembers his birth mother, a human woman who died of illness at the age of thirty-eight. Or, at the very least, he believes he remembers her. He isn’t really sure because he, along with Veneziano, was taken from her as soon as it was clear that they were Nations. But, many of his memories from his infancy include a woman with hair like Veneziano’s singing to them and rocking them to sleep.
2.) Romano is actually the one in charge of politics in Italy, while his brother is the one who normally goes to battle. Pretty much everyone wonders why this arrangement was made, since Romano, while still a coward, has shown himself, at least once, to be a better soldier than his twin. When asked, Romano will respond in one of two ways: yell at the person to get out of his face so he can finish working, or he’ll tell them that he’d rather take the stress of worrying about finances and political problems than have his brother have to worry about them. At least on the battlefield, Veneziano has people to help him.
3.) Romano has a stuffed wolf that was handed down to him by Rome. It’s the only bit of proof he has that his “grandfather” actually loved him even close to the extent that he loved Veneziano. When he was living with Spain, and sleeping alone after he and his brother reunited, Romano would often pull his old stuffed toy out and sleep with it. He considers giving it to Seborga, but always changes his mind before actually going through with it.
Since Italy spent his childhood at Austria’s, he picked up learning the piano a little. He now practices in his free time and will perform in front of others if he wants to impress someone.

Whenever Germany says “nein”, every time, without fail, America chimes in with “ten!” and when everyone gives an exasperated sigh he looks around confused and says “what? I thought we were counting?”
