Very nice thread idea OP. Picrel is Northern, Central and Southern Italies.

Forgot to ask if 21th century art is actually ok to post, so here's a more traditional-looking Britannia

Oh sure, stuff like countryhumans, scandinavia and the world etc. still exist, but that doesn't stop people from going "have people learned nothing from Hetalia???", perpetuating the idea that making original humanized county art is inherently cringe and evil.
