Our Kickstarter campaign has received $74,000 from over 2,000 backers! TV Tropes 2.0 is coming. There is no stopping it now. We have 4 days left. At $75K we can also develop an API and at $100K the tropes web series will be produced. View the project here and discuss here.
And zig-zagged: Most of them usually wear normal clothes, and are shown wearing formal outfits. Hutt River usually goes around in his royal family's regalia (including a purple cape) and shows up in a plainer, more subtle-coloured outfit, but said outfit includes a light brown tailcoat, which is more formal than the suits the other boys wear.

Sealand - Peter Kirkland
Aim for it! Sealand will enter the G8!
Voiced by: Kanae Kasuga (Flower of Iris CD), Haruka Hoshizuki (promotional Hetalia clips), Ai Orikasa (JP), Maxey Whitehead (EN)
Bad Ass: The real Sealand's formation. It was formed when an absolutely batshit insane man, his mercenaries and several hundred 'subjects' stole an aquatic military base from pirate radio broadcaster Ronan O'Reilly and declared it the country of Sealand. Then, when England tried to deal with him through the navy, he fended them off with firearms, gasoline bombs and what his own wikipedia article describes as lunatic strength. From then on, he managed to get his imaginary country declared as a real country by basically shooting anyone who said that it wasn't.
Has Two Papas: Sweden and Finland, though this is mostly fanon. Only Sweden was seen adopting Sealand; fans just incorporate Finland into the family scheme because of the whole "wife" thing. Admittedly, it is pretty cute.
Danshigakusei: Fair enough, since it's an English design and he's school age.
Split-Personality Makeover: He goes from regular Nice Guy to Delinquent in seconds when someone walks on his land. He is very embarrassed when his true face is seen and since he became friends with other micronations, which means he gets more visits from them, he gets prepared by changing into his tough-looking self every day.
Tsundere: He flips Sealand, Seborga and Wy off when they ask him to be their new friend, but runs back to join them as soon as they leave.
Principality of Hutt River
Paying your respects to me, your senior, is simple etiquette, yes?
Hair Flip: At least three times in the manga that introduces him: twice when debating over Sealand's proposition to join his group of friends (the flipping-behing-the-ear variant then the tossing-in-the-air one) then another time at the end with the other micronations (again the flipping-behind-the-ear kind). You can conclude hair flipping is a habit of his.
Idiot Hair: Only one, unlike Australia. With it, his hairstyle looks like a wavy, light brown version of America's.
Purple Is Powerful: When he appears in the (uncoloured) manga that introduced new micronations, Sealand comments on how he "looks like an amazing and important person". Then, at the end, Hima added coloured chibis of every micronation introduced, revealing Hutt's cape being purple, adding to the "amazing and important" effect. He is the first Australian micronation after all and the fact that he is quite developped compared to most micronations in general helps a lot too.
Sempai/Kohai: Subverted. He claims to be Wy's sempai (translated as senior in scanlations), but Wy doesn't pay him much respect (see character quote): she is less than willing to greet him when she goes by his home and she even agrees with Molossia when he calls Hutt River a "lameass bastard". Still, Hutt's ridiculously snobby attitude doesn't help.
The Rival: Though he is more arrogant than dark, he is apparently one to Wy. She's very peeved when he comes in.
Republic of Nikko Nikko
A Halloween Party? I certainly would like to go, but I've already withdraw from nation status, so...
Ridiculously Average Guy: Has a stable job at Dake hot springsnote were his nation used to be and kids after giving up his nation-hood. He also looks older now so he's aging normally. Seems to be working just fine for him.
Only Six Faces: Wipe that paint and smirk off his face and he can pass for Latvia. In fact, when he was first introduced and we didn't know which nation he was, some fans called him Badass!Latvia or Seme!Latvia for the time being.
Lars Vilks, the founder of Ladonia, is part Latvian.
