Danish household

Danish household

Out in the big world he's known as Denmark, but back at home he's known as Sjælland (Sealand/Zealand, but has nothing to do with New Zealand). He's the head of the household (has the goverment), and the wildest of the four. He's open minded (not much to people with dark skin though, but still more than the others), promiscuous, and self important. Has a tendency to look down at the others and doesn't like Jylland much, whom he consider slow and boring.

Jylland (Jutland) in turn doesn't like Sjælland either, and often calls him a Swede or Devil Island. He's a hard worker who doesn't say much and enjoys nature far more than Sjælland. He is very practical and has very few things that are just meant to be pretty. He loves porcelain figurines though.
He has a love/hate relationship with Germany as well because he lost a lot of land to Germany, but at the same time often visits him for a drink.

Fyn (Funen) is often caught in the middle of Jylland and Sjælland's fights, though she prefer Jylland. She's very sweet and nice, but is often mocked by the others for being unimportant and kinda geeky. Other times they just forget her completely.

Bornholm lives by himself on the other side of Sweden. He may be the smallest, but he is considered the best looking, and though Sjælland sometimes calls him a "backup Swede" he also absolutely adores him and has lovingly named Bornholm "Pearl of the Baltic Sea". Bornholm is a tough little guy who has fought off both Sweden and Russia, and it's a big part of his identity that he chose to be Danish, unlike Iceland, Faroe Islands and Greenland.

These are just the main four. There's also Lolland and Jylland could be three characters. :XD:

I know people will now ask me to draw the different regions of their country, but I suggest you do it yourself, as you probably know the regions and the stereotypes better than I ever will.

...I can't draw at all, but this got me thinking about Finland's regions. XD There's 19 of them now, but it's easier to think of them as the 9 historical provinces (because Northern and Southern Savonia can just be combined into a single Savonia, the same with Northern and Southern Karelia).

Savonia: the troll.
Karelia: the motormouth.
Tavastia: similar to Danish Jytland i.e. slow, hard-working, practical and barely speaks.
Ostrobothnia: basically SATW's Finland.
Lapland: a combination of Savonia and Ostrobothnia (drunk trolls who swear 24/7).
Sami: always in a traditional outfit surrounded by reindeer.
Swedish Finland: the wealthy queer.

It's my headcanon that all the states/regions/whateveryoucallthem have personifications, and it's the state that has the capital city in it that is the group's spokesperson and represents the country.

Ima do the stereotypes of the Canadian Provinces (At least, from South Alberta's Perspective)

Alberta: A rich money whoring asshole with a short temper and constantly buys big trucks. He wears a fancy blue suit with the symbol in the center being his tie and has a cowboy hat and a stick of grain in his mouth. Oh, he also wears jeans and has brown hair and wears glasses. He's very rich, at least, normally. Basically the Canadian version of Rednecks.

British Columbia: Pot-loving, Tree-hugging, Fleece-wearing hippies.

Saskatchewan: A bunch of farmers. Just farmers.

Manitoba: Quiet and rather shy and boring as not many people in Canada notice them but are very kind and hard working.

Ontario: Harried, self-important, pollution-inhaling, pampered, wanna-be-americans.

Quebec: French-loving, chain-smoking, poutine-scarfing, rude, irrationally sports-obsessed separatists.

Maritime Provinces: The hard-drinking, fish-mongering, folk-music-playing citizens of these places will probably have something to say about this, but with their ridiculous accents no one can understand them anyway.

Yukon, NWT and Nunavut: Dog-mushing, blubber-eating Inuits who live in houses that resemble portable trailers.

The Canada from SatW (aka Ottawa): ...I think you already know this one. XD

These guys should appear in more comics, maybe as voices in Denmark's head.

Challenge accepted

Out in the big world he is known as Sweden, but back at home he is known as Svealand. He is the leader in the household because he has the goverment, but he does not have the biggest population out of the three. He is meticulous, organized and bossy. And in comparison with the other two he is more civilized and knowledgeable, according to himself. He likes technology, dinner parties and painting dalahorses. He often hangs out with Norway and Denmark, and he is Svealand so he have all the foreign bonds that Sweden has. And he of course also hangs out with Åland, his boyfriend, and he can also hang out with Götaland from time to time.

Götaland lives in the south and has the biggest population. He is very friendly, laid back and enjoy life. He is funny guy and likes to make jokes. However, he is seen as stingy and lazy, mainly by Svealand. He loves to relax, either on a nice grass field or on a boat. He has a ferryboat which he travels with on the Baltic sea, he often visit Åland, Finland, Estonia and Latvia. And he also visit Denmark often, but he doesn't need his ferryboat for that. Within Sweden he often hangs out with Svealand and Scania, who also lives with him.

Norrland lives in the far north and has the smallest population. She is big, strong, quiet and enjoys outdoor activities. The other's can even see her as a little slow. She sees Svealand as weak and a overreacting person. She doesn't hang out with Svealand and Götaland that often, she is rather with the Sami siblings, even though she can say some irrelevant things about them. She also hangs out with Norway because he often visit her to buy groceries or visit on holidays and Germany always pays her a visit during the winter to test his cars on her icy roads.

I hope you will find my picture of the three characters here:
