Apparently as inspiration for a fictional setting that will no doubt throw up my countrymen up in arms. I honestly thought I was being punked by our local NSA hackers when I read the synopsis.

Besides that, Black Lagoon said we were notable port in the human trafficking business.

Sweden
Not exactly the most represented country in anime, but we get a few mentions and a few characters every now and then. Not as much as our finnish brothers though because Japan fucking loves them for some reason.

- Stella in Muv-luv
- Julie Sigtuna in Absolute Duo (it's never stated, but Sigtuna is a swedish town and she's confirmed to be from 'Scandinavia' (like every other swedish anime character because fuck mentioning specific countries) so I guess she counts)

- The dude in Anohana has a Swedish flag on it

Other than that I can't think of much. Norse mythology is a fairly common theme though so I guess that counts?

Juan Bailey

Well, I was wrong.
Also checked.

- The dude in Anohana has a Swedish flag on it

Yeah, but you get characters in a lot of other anime. Mugi in K-On for instance.

Also, the setting in Kiki's Delivery Service is confirmed to be heavily influenced by Stockholm and Visby.

Italy, Britain and Germany are top tier European countries. Besides France, the rest are irrelevant. Finland is pretty cool though, so Japan will like that.

My favorite American was from the Index LNs. Roberto Katze, our Mexican president. A reporter questioned one of his decisions in a press conference so he started flirting with her until she shut up. Later he hotwired a security cart then used said cart to save some kid by doing a drive by on terrorist wizards in a mall. It made me cry a single manly tear that exploded into an eagle.
