outheast Asian nations. She is seen wearing traditional Philippine clothing; a thin white blouse, knee length red skirt, and a pair of red sandals. She was also seen to have Sampaguita flowers adorned on her hair and wears the holy Roman Catholic cross around her neck as a sign of being religious.

She is a mid-tan and has a round, childish face. Her hair is very wavy with a shade of dark brown that also matches her eyes. She has bangs commonly swept to side of her face. And like most Asians, Philippines maintained her youthful look.

Personality and InterestsEdit

Optimistic and religious are two of the best traits that describes Philippines. As a young child, she is very friendly and cheerful; getting along with other nations is not a big problem for her. However, she is a bit stubborn and emotional; Philippines always does what her heart tells rather than what her mind says. Her hobbies are karaoke singing, watching Asian TV series and playing basketball.

Being exposed to Western nations at such a young age, Philippines felt inferior towards her own race. She also wanted to experience winter because it doesn't snow in her homeland.

Philippines can be a bit of overachieving, especially around games, sports and more, but sometimes she gets very competitive but never a sore loser. She tells the funniest jokes and she mostly even laughs at herself for being so funny. Some countries are also bewildered by her as after a natural disaster, she still laughs and tries to cheer herself up even without help, by this she's often mistaken as a crazed lunatic.


  • Spain

    Spain was her estranged Brother. He is the one who gave Philippines her name and hence, kept her under his wing for a long time. Her relationship with her brother is quite strained as Spain abuses her natural resources when his empire was dying Philippines gained her own independence and later found America after he lost to her in a independence war. They rarely talk to each other anymore but even so, Philippines still adapts her brother's influences such as the faith in Roman Catholicism, language and the Hispanic traditions.

  • America

  After the First World War, Philippines was adopted by America . They grew very close, and Philippines had easily embraced his language, making her very good in English. Their bond is so strong that America was always there for her, whenever she was in need.

  • Japan

Though arent related back in the old days( or her childhood days) before Philippines was being kept by Spain, she and Japan are trading partners since most often Japan visited her back in the later days. She always thought of Japan as an older brother(same goes for China) being the one who always been able to talk to her back then, But after later years back then Japan stops visiting that got her a little heart broken but after many years of not seeing again they met again when Japan tried to attack her during the Second World War and eventually, he won first but Philippines was rescued by America and won. He apologized to what he have done and, being a forgiving nation, Philippines accepted his apologies. After their conflict, their relationship remained splendid throughout the years.

  •    China

Philippines dislike China as he always says that he has the right to claim the spratlys islands for himself. Both of them always fight about the islands but sometimes they make a pretty good team. Though back in the old days they are so close to each other like siblings but then later changed after the spratlys island issue they rather seem like a hate-love relationship even before now after Philippines boss changed

  •    Russia

Russia and Philippines have always been good friends when they first met. Even though Russia may be scary to her, he acts as a " more than a friend " type of person to her.

  • Indonesia and Malaysia

Indonesia and Malaysia are Philippines' sister and brother by blood respectively. All three of them share they same physical features and warm personality. Indonesia is the eldest, the second born is Malaysia and Philippines is the youngest. But among the three siblings, Philippines is the most different. Indonesia and Malaysia grew up together while Philippines was taken away by Spain as a child, making her culture different from her sisters.
