Though someone already helped out with that fast-flashing scene with the characters, I found this image from Pixiv that details a bunch of frames that were used in the video. Pretty fascinating stuff!:
It's interesting to see how closely they stuck to the anime coloring style for the characters, save for characters like Belarus (who has her manga color scheme). There's also the fact that the anime unfortunately lightened Egypt, as well as Greece (though Egypt is a more jarring example; Even though there are light-skinned Egyptians, he has never been that pale in merchandise or colored images).

What to do?
I have to start out by saying that I didn't know about this video's existence until now. I will also have to say that I was impressed to the point that I was shocked to find it was fanmade. It seems that it would be a waste to simply delete this article along with the others. This video has already been attacked for infringement of copyright (I don't understand...why? It was fanmade, even if the art was so outstanding that it looks like the original), and I'm afraid of letting it die, of letting it dissipate into fragmented particles that will eventually disappear from everyone's memories.
For now, I am in favor of Ceras's suggestion of integrating this article into the meme page unless there are other inputs (as long as it isn't completely erased from the archives).
You might say that I am being too emotional, that I am giving too much concern for a simple video. My response is that the originality, the fluidity, the power of the video has inspired me to voice my opinion.
You might say that I am writing this in vain. I am only one person among many; my opinion is so insignificant that what I am doing is useless. My response is that one pebble is capable of creating ripples that reach opposite shores, one mutation is capable of completely changing the function of a protein, and one voice is capable of affecting another, leading to the stimulation of an entire population.
But in the end, it is only one opinion. Please feel free to share yours. Average Exception 03:22, September 27, 2010 (UTC)
