What is 1p?
1p! characters, are the characters we see in the Hetalia series. 1p! stands for "first player", it also stands for original or "the original character that was first introduced in the series" and is not derived from another character. Opposite to 2p!
What is 2P?
This question is probably one of the most frequently asked.
2P stands for "second player", and was spawned from Himaruya's drawings of the Axis and (Nyotalia) Allies in a different color scheme than normal. Fans interpreted the characters' different colors and expressions as characters from a parallel universe that are the polar opposites of their normal counterparts in personality. This essentially means that the normal Hetalia universe is the equivalent to "1P". For example, England in normal Hetalia can't cook, while England in the 2P!talia universe can cook (but it's often poisoned, watch out), and so on.
What are 3p and and 4p?
3p!'s and 4p!'s have no basis in canonical design, or even in the canon and are entirely manmade.
Why doesn't _____ appear in the show? Will there be a _____?
Not all countries get to make a appearance in the show. It is always going to be unconfirmed when relating to a country that has not appeared in the show, the only way that a new country will be seen in the show is if Himaruya confirms it himself and that is when we can confirm it.
What is _____'s favourite _____?
Most of these questions are unconfirmed in regarding colour, music, ect. The only way you will find the answer to these questions is if they are fan-made.
What does _____ (state name, non canon) look like?
The states of America (or non canon characters) do not have an official design, and therefore, do not have an official appearance. All "appearances" are either fan-made or altered versions of the original Hetalia characters, presumable recolors.
Is the pairing _____/_____ official?
Unfortunately, there are no "solid" official pairings (with the exception of HRE/Chibitalia, which is official), meaning that none of them are real. Most pairings shipped by fans are more one-sided or detached than they may appear, causing the pairings to appear official when they aren't. Some of the semi-canonical (not 100% official but strong) include Germany/Italy, Spain/Romano, Sweden/Finland, Austria/Hungary, and others. If you're unsure if a pairing has official evidence or not, feel free to ask.
This question has been asked numerous times, and so far several generous users have put in much time and research compiling lists of all the characters' names. Any questions about individual character's names are accepted; however, you may notice that any questions regarding all of the human names are slow to be answered. This is because of the sheer workload that it is to compile a list of all the character names. Please refer to the link above for a complete list.
Again, this question is a bit slow to be answered, as it takes a lot of time to compile all characters' birthdays. Please refer to the link above to see a list of birthdays (generously compiled by scarletfireblaze and revived by TheMagicalWonders, the contributor of the other is unknown).
Since all of the 2P characters' names are fan-created, names can vary widely. The link above shows the a list of the most agreed-upon 2P names in the 2P fan base.
How a character acts is usually due to their personality or those around them, so, for instance, if one character were acting aggressive toward another the other character would act defensive and so on.
This link has all of the heights cited. Should have almost no flaws.
All of the ages of the countries are not yet confirmed, however, here is a list of the confirmed ages of the countries (and approximations that Himaruya has released).
Nyo!talia is an alternate canon universe where all of the characters are turned into the opposite gender. Keep in mind that they are not Fem!versions, because Fem!versions would only have elongated hair and the such (same thing with the girls, but reversed).
