While rummaging through a box he found in the attic, England uncovers some old photos, along with old memories.

(These took so long to make, I hope you guys like them! I was trying to put subtle stuff in the photos to try and tell a story, I’ve never done it before so it was good practice! I might end up writing something for this if I decide to stop being lazy.)

Hetalia/ 2P Hetalia Analysis: The Nature of the Nations

Okay, so one thing that I’ve been incorperating into my 2p universe theory but I now honestly believe might apply to canon (on the 1p side at least) is this:

The nations represent personifications of their countries, but only specific parts. As we can see in the show, they’re still run by their bosses, who they must obey no matter what- even though their bosses are part of the nation they represent, so they therefore should, by all means, be under the control of the personifications. And though they should technically be super-important (being literal walking, breathing versions of an entire fucking country), their military uniforms themselves aren’t very high-ranking: we usually see them in the uniforms of common soldiers/soldiers of lower ranks, not of the higher ones we would expect from a country on a battlefield. Which leads me to what conclusion?

That the (1p) nations are the personifications of the general populace, not of the entirety of what makes up a country.

Think about it. Most of the interactions with people we see them having is with ordinary citizens- or their bosses. They keep a high interest in the going-ons of the civilians. They are seen to keep lives like normal people, traveling and living in houses with ordinary posessions and such, and even though they have slightly-above-average jobs and positions due to their nature, they seem to be more figureheads to their bosses, like some sort of dog that follows them around and does their bidding. They bicker and argue and hold different opinions than their bosses, yes, and are seen having meetings and engaging in politically active situations- but when are any of their arguments really seen being acted out or taken seriously, apart from within their circle of nations? If anything, they’re like kids put in a daycare to talk about what the adults are doing while their parents are out at conferences. They’re the literall fucking personifications of a country, but they are not that much more powerful than the average person. Essentially, they are the cumulative of what makes up 75% of a nation- the people who live there, the ordinary folk.

Which still leaves 25% of a nation left over, which is where I believe the 2ps come into play.

The 2ps are, I believe, the personifications of the leftovers- the government, the military, and the societal outcasts, like the criminals, the ones under governmental protection, etc. Conceptually speaking, a nation is two parts- the government and the populace- and that is why there are two personifications per nation instead of just one. And because the government, military, and social outcast group are all interlinked- the government controls the military and regulates the criminals/provides aid and watch to those who need it- they form one person. That person- personification- is the 2p of the country. The 2ps do not have the same personality or perceptions as the 1p because their roles for their nations are different. Rather than being controlled by their boss, like the 1ps, the 2ps are representatives of their boss- their direct puppets, so to speak. What the leader of the country says to the 1ps, the 2p mimics in their own world, effectively carrying out the orders without having to be told. This is why most 2ps are bossy, aggressive, cunning, immune to murder, and prone to illnesses of the mind and body- from years of ruling over their seperate governmental sections. They’re naturally geared to be leaders, warriors, and criminals, because that is the people of their country they personify. They distrust each other because they always think that the other will take advantade of them, they are just as quick to defend their people as they are to exploit them, and they will engage in atrocities if it benefits their country- because that’s what they were made to do. Someone has to protect and guide the citizens (1ps) of the country, and that role falls to them. Similarily speaking, they are the second players- second, lesser versions- because a country starts out with its populace before it gains a government, a military, and its outcasts, and because a country can purge itself of a government, a military, and its outcasts and earn new ones and still be that same country. A first player personification can kill their second player and feel little effect, while a second player will always die if their first player is killed- because a government is not a government without people to rule, a military is not a military with no one to protect, and you are not truely an outcast if there is no one to compare yourself too. In addition to this, the person that is the personification in first player terms is more influential to the overall character than their country status is. ‘Alfred’ is really Alfred F. Jones, while at the same time happening to represent the people of the nation of America- because he is also one of those people. Whereas 'Luciano’ is less Luciano and more '2p Italy’- because he is not representative of a person, he is a personification of a concept, a control system. He’s more nation than he is human, whereas Alfred is more human with additional nation aspects. This is also why the 2p peronifications are more fucked in the head, because they cannot really call themselves people or say that their decisions are their own when the whole reason they exist is to parrot the actions and words of the bosses of the nations they control. They are not a perfect copy of a person, they are the shitty, run-down, overduplicated .jpeg version of a person- hence the weirdly-coloured eyes and other abnormalties.

And the reasons why there are two seperate worlds is not because the worlds are really seperate, but because the personifications can only see what they personify, what they are made of. They have a different reality filter. So for example, a first player (personification of the general public) can only see what the general public sees. They don’t see the depravation in the streets, the underground crime rings, the strictness in the military and the blood of the battlefield (though some do), or the operations, mannerisms, and debates of the government. They see what most people see when they live in or wander through a nation- which isn’t as blinkered as one would expect, but it’s still blinded. And though some individuals in a nation can familiarize themselves with the other side, the personifications cannot unless everyone in their country does or their boss sends them somewhere that the person they are (Alfred vs America, Ludwig vs Germany) can experience. Where on the flipside, the 2p world is what they rule over- the government, the military, the social discards- because that is what they have control of. Their world is a dark, cold, dangerous, miserable place with strict laws and regulations because those areas are what they represent, so that is all that they see. And the mirrors/portals to the other world are areas where the lines between the two aspects of society are blurred, like the parts of the government that speak about the proceedures directly to the general public, the enlistment programs into the military and old war stories, the teetering line between lives of crime and barely-sustaining groups of people live- because those are areas where the people that make up who they are mingle, and that’s where the personifications can go and learn about the other perspective and thus gain access/ability to 'see’ into the world dominated by their other half.

This is a really rough explanation of a concept I’ve been brooding over for years now, so feel free to ask/add on to this post if you want to discuss or hear a more detailed explanation of some areas.
