Personality And Interests
Described as a "mysterious micronation located in the American state of Nevada", he is a carefree, cheerful person when nobody is around. It is only when others approach that he becomes a loud, aggressive person with a sharp attitude. Wy sees him as weirdo, to put in account.
He also has a pet that he proclaims as a dog but some countries think of it as a different kind of creature. He likes to work in the garden whenever no one's around and has an intendency to drive people away with inappropriate behaviour and reckless language.
He admits in a Christmas 2011 panel that he's embarrassed when the Micronation group saw his true self.
- Main article: America
Molossia acts calm and mild with America. Thus, in a Christmas 2011 panel, America is surprised to see Molossia acting repulsive and angry toward him. He is unaware of the fact that Molossia accidentally thinks he is Sealand. It is stated in a line that he can't lift his head against America.
In The Anime
Molossia's official debut in the series is Episode 129, It's A Treasure Box Of Countries ~Part 1 where the micronation group visits him to request on joining their group. He is working in the garden with his hair down and no sunglasses. His pet then comes to him to ask for food.
Molossia answers happily to this but that's when he actually notices the micronation group in front of him. On instinct, he switches his personality to a more reckless one and demands angrily from them on the reason why they're here.
Molossia reluctantly declines their offer but soon catches up to them and joins them.
- Molossia's mobster-like appearance (his white "zoot suit", sunglasses, and slick hair) is likely a reference to the history of organized crime in the Nevadan city of Las Vegas (and to a lesser extent, Reno) and the stereotypes associated with it. Gangsters, including Bugsy Siegel and members of the Al Capone gang, ran casinos there in the early to mid 20th century.
