** As of World Stars, Romano and America have now canonically interacted with Romano going to America's house seeking work. Needless to say, fans of this pairing were ecstatic at seeing them interact.

* Hong Kong/Iceland have had only one or two panels of interaction in {{Hetaween 2011}}, and that is it. The thing is, they were a pairing before that. Well, a crack pairing to be exact, but a pretty damn popular one. Especially when you consider Denmark/Norway and Sweden/Finland to be the main pairings in the Nordic 5, leaving poor little Iceland all alone, it gives him someone to be with so that he's not a cock block to Denmark/Norway.

* France/Germany also has what some might consider a surprisingly large base considering the fact that France and Germany aren't seen interacting that often, and taking into account the time and setting of the main story, obviously not positively (though of course [[WidgetSeries APH is APH]]). The ship seems to stem largely from their modern day interactions, particularly their involvement in the EU. The G8 strip, which acknowledges this with [[http://aph.starry-sky.com/blog-entry-657-2.html a theatrically hurt France arguing with the seemingly-henpecked Germany in a amusing manner]], was written and drawn after the shipping base had been firmly established, however.

The ''Manga/AxisPowersHetalia'' series can justify [[ShippingGoggles fans creating pairs]] since the characters are countries and the story is based off of [[RealitySubtext history]]. Even if [[HidekazHimaruya the author]] has not covered a time where the nations interact, fans can call upon their history classes or TheOtherWiki for evidence of their ship for fan works.

* Japan gets this a lot in the Japanese fandom as the main LauncherOfAThousandShips there. Japan/Taiwan is fairly popular because of real-life history and the popular {{fanon}} theory that Taiwan was engaged/married to Japan during her stay at his place, even though Taiwan's canon appearances so far have been exclusively with China. Japan/Prussia is even ''more'' popular, even though they don't have much real-life history together and haven't interacted even once in the strips. There are a lot more examples, but these two stand out the most for being in the top five pairings for Japan on {{Pixiv}}, among the more obvious ships like Japan/England, Japan/Greece, Japan/America or Japan/Italy.

* Russia/America was one of the most popular ships in the Western fandom even when they had minimal interaction and zero HoYay moments.

* England/Belarus is also gaining popularity in the fandom, especially on [[http://tsundere-ribbon.deviantart.com/ deviantART]] and [[http://www.pixiv.net/tags.php?tag=%E3%83%84%E3%83%B3%E3%83%87%E3%83%AC%E3%83%AA%E3%83%9C%E3%83%B3 Pixiv]]. Actually, for a what is essentially a complete crack pairing, some of the art on there is very high quality to say the least.
* When not being shipped with Hong Kong or China, S. Korea is shipped with Belarus. The two have never even met each other and the only thing that they have in common is the fact that there obssesed with their older brothers.

* Thailand/Russia may qualify to be one, as both have never meet up once in canon. Fans tend to base their interaction mostly good relationship in RealLife. On the bright side, this is one of few pairing that Russia isn'y a PsychopathicManChild, and not too "[[{{Wimpification}} stereotypical]]" as well.

* America/Russia is like this, despite being one of the most popular pairings in the fandom. The two have minimal interaction in the manga/anime, and there are zero HoYay moments between them. Fans don't care. (Some even disregard canon entirely and regard other people's fanfic, like the very polemic ''The Chosen End'', as canon.)
** Well, there ''was'' that "condom warfare" strip with them (even if it was far less HoYay-filled than you might expect from a premise like that), and them being on the same side during WWII pretty much means that they must have interacted to ''some'' degree during that time. Although of course, the true reason for the sheer popularity of them as a pairing is the potential many ShippingGoggles-wearing fans see for delicious ColdWar [[MindGameShip mind games]] and [[StockholmShnozzing hatesex]] between them, hence why they don't mind that they've had little actual shown interaction in canon.

** In a similiar vain, you have the America/Ukraine shippers, who are fewer in numbers, but have their reasons, like America's Hero complex trying to help Ukraine whenever she starts crying, his love of her huge... Tracts of Land, and the simple idea that they're almost a romantic MoeCouplet.
