Hetalia: Axis Powers

is a Japanese webcomic, later adapted as a manga and an anime series, by Hidekaz Himaruya. The series' main presentation is as an often over-the-top allegory of political and historic events as well as more general cultural comparisons. Characters are personifications of countries, regions such as Hong Kong and micronations with little reference to other national personifications. Both positive and negative cultural stereotypes form part of each character's personality.

The video says it focuses on Spain, but it is a pretty broad collection of pictures. It's a Hetalia World Cup slideshow set to Wavin' Flag by K'Naan, but it's pretty evocative and emotive somehow. I love how it seems to place Hetalia in a more worldly, serious context, without becoming dark or anything. It's more unifying than anything.
