1. For every "x" add up one point unless the question says to add more.
2. The lower ones lower your already added up score for every "x" in those statements.
3. Be honest. The questions aren't a "sometimes" or a "maybe". For example:
-Your character is happy and cheerful. You maybe NOT "x" this out and then say your reasoning for this is "sometimes she's happy" or "only around close friends" or "when she's around Italy/Germany/Denmark/etc." Either he/she are happy or not. No in-betweens.
4. Be truthful. NO ONE likes a liar. This is test to help you better your OC so you've got to be honest.

35. [X] Height is NOT based off of population. (People, these are COUNTRIES. They are to be based off the COUNTRY. )I looked up average height/weight correlations for her age, but nothing specific for her country, so, no.
36. [ ] OCs name is your name or has part of your own name in it. (Add 8 points automatically. You never name an OC after yourself.)

51. [ ] Even if, based off their relationship throughout history, they hate/dislike each other.

53. [ ] If you answered yes above, does the language make any sense? Put an X if it doesn't. (Example: A Chinese speaking country can speak Icelandic.)Considering the close relationship Malta has with Italy, I’d deem it sensible.

Less than or 10 Consider making your OC a bit more interesting but he/she is not a Mary Sue! Congratulations!
10-19 Balance Character! Great Job! You really did your research!
20-41 Border Line Mary sue; Pretty much a Mary-sue. Consider deleting some things. Your character is/may be annoying to others.
42< Mary Sue all the way. Please, control this.
Extra Notes on Making a Hetalia OC:
1. A character should only have this if it is something serious. Not just a war or a dictator or an earthquake or something. This should, but is not required, only happen if there is an ongoing event of some sort that has seriously affected your OC. )
2. This bugs be quite a lot. NO CURLS OR ANYTHING SIMILAR TO ONE ANOTHER CHARACTER ALREADY HAS. (This is an exception if the character was once owned by that character though. For example, India having England eyebrows. That's alright because India is still part of the commonwealth today and was once owned by England.)
3. Please, please, don't name your OCs after yourselves.
4. Hm, the biggest issue though is the History and Personality. People, you must remember these are COUNTRIES. Which means not everything can be based off the people. (Hair color, skin color, eye color, things like that are alright because it's common sense) but things like Personality and whom they get along with is determined by their history. Not you. So, briskly read through their history and find a personality. For example, if the country tended to get into many fights and often fought for the "evil" side in something, that character, more than likely, will be bad and probably be angry and shaded. If the country only got into one huge fight, for example, and you make that character evil and bad, that is incorrect because it was only a one time thing or a few. Not something significant, understand?
5. Don't be afraid to add some stereotypes in there. Not too many that they make the character offensive but just enough that it makes the character funny and/or interesting.
_______________________________13pts. Apparently she's balanced, so that's good.
This was fun, haha.
EDIT: I've updated her character bit since then, so I took the test again... I unselected some, added others, and I ended up with the same number as before, haha.
