Violent spelling mistakes

Belgium: “Your spelling is atrocious.”
Netherlands: “No it isn’t, what are you talking about?”
Belgium: “You wrote the word ‘geweld’ as: ghewelt, gheweldt, geweldt and gewelt in a single document.”
Netherlands: “…I recall no such thing…”

♠︎ Kingdom of Spades ♠︎

Made a quick lineart for the kingdom and rushed it so the colours are flat. I like the Benelux siblings under the Spades but next time, I’ll add the other Kirkland brothers and the original cast.

I seem to have the habit of forgetting to draw Texas.


Yes, I’ve landed in the Netherlands.

King Louis was the first king of the Netherlands. He was the brother of Napoleon. He wanted to connect with his people, and so he tried to say “Ik ben uw koning,” meaning “I am your king,” yet because of his French accent, it ended up sounding like “Ik ben uw konijn,” meaning “I am your rabbit.”

Thus he became known as the Rabbit King!

It’s interesting how the Dutch disliked the idea of a monarchy at first but now ended up being one of the few remaining monarchies.
