France isn't Americas mother. She's his oldest and best friend. She was the woman who came and helped America stand up for himself when Papa England was being rude and completely ignoring America to instead watch birds. She helped him fight back, and even threw a few punches at England herself (she wanted to anyway, but America wanting to be his own man was a good excuse)

Oh yeah, they are almost constantly at each others throats, love to insult and make fun of each other, but when shit happens to France, America WILL come running to help, and beat the living shit out of whoever is picking on her. And even if he doesn't do it immediately, he will work in the shadows to make sure she always comes out on top.

Hell, Americas most valued and famous landmark is literally a statue given to America by France, and Americans love most everything French.

I'm also pretty certain there have been times when they almost started dating, but ended up not because of silly shit.

I would expect not only France, but also Netherlands, Germany, Spain... et cetera.

One could say that, if 'parents' are to be pointed out, United States of America is the result of an orgy of European colonial powers. But let's not make a comic out of that.

You legitimately gave me a panic attack. XD I thought I had forgotten it was Mother's Day. But there's two more months until Mother's Day here in the U.S. Phew! I had totally forgotten about that comic from 2015. Happy Mother's Day to all the British mamas out there!

Thanks to the below comments I'm now picturing every female country in a maternity ward giving birth to baby parts that is then frakensteinned together.

Let's face it, America had all the moms! There's Mother Turtle Island (though he treated her horribly and they still don't often get along), there's Maman France, Mama Spain and Mother England, Mother Denmark and Wales and China and Ireland, honestly, he's gonna get writer's cramp.

Wait, yeah...
If the female England is SISTER England, and that's their mother, and BROTHER England is their father...
Does that mean England is married to his sister?!?!? :O

I think there are a lot of euromoms America would need to write cards for if we went by heritage, but for countries who helped create modern America, France does make sense being that it was the French navy who held off most of the British forces when America likes to claim themselves for "winning" the revolutionary war. then again, to take this to it's full personification... if you look at it as an abusive parent problem, England does sound like the one who would force child custody and then raise the kid to believe their foster parent is their real parent.

Thing is, The U.S. is a melting pot of many nations... Maybe the product of an orgy?

As an American: it probably depends a little on your heritage. On one side, my family goes back about nine generations here, to before the Founding, and we were British on that side before we were American (my apologies, however little they may mean, to the Pequot tribe).

In our current state as a nation, though, France is probably America's ideological mother, in a way, since that's where the majority of our Founders' national ideology was developed - in salons and the like. Germany and its siblings gave us a lot of religious ideology, so it translates for many modern-day Americans into the parent of many of our national and family holidays, but I see this as more of a paternal role, and perhaps an adoptive one.

Likewise, Father Britain I would see as the ex of at least one of America's parents, who later came back into our lives via our involvement in WWII, and taught us a bunch of bad habits we now unfortunately revere out of a not-wholly misguided respect for them.

I would personally credit China as also being the nation's Karmic ancestor, since we're in many ways the same kind of Empire that China once was - which I see us as now being on the decline - but that's just my opinion.

On the other hand, it's entirely possible America is just the result of an incestuous, multi-national orgy. That IS more or less what we look like, but the traits I mentioned above seem to have most prominently risen to the surface.
