Switzerland really should be 165, because he is as tall/ small as Japan (you seen in the episode when the sang O Vreneli)

Aw, at least there's someone shorter or at least as tall as I... I', a Finnish woman, 160 cm and yes, I know a lot of people being short one. So huh, how it can be there's so many so tall commenting here? Really, am I just a hobbit or are you all giants there? Though I have to admit Finns are not so tall people anyway, but still..

Austria and Prussia should shrink about 20cm so I don't look ridiculous when I cosplay as them :|
PokaDotPonies Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow. I'm really short! I'm shorter than most of the countries!

AutumnLeaves01 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Don't worry, I'm short as well :P
The last time I measured myself, I was Seychelles' height :/
You'd think I'd be taller....every other German I've met has been taller....
PokaDotPonies Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Haha, I'm a cm taller than Seychelles!
AutumnLeaves01 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I wish I was…hm…maybe Iceland's height...
PokaDotPonies Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'd be happy at probably Finland/England sized.
I get teased at school for being short XD
AutumnLeaves01 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Same here, it's a favourite topic of my peers!

I'd technically want to be Austria's height, but if I were slightly shorter, it wouldn't be so bad.
PokaDotPonies Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
agreed haha
katrinego2000 Featured By Owner Edited Jan 3, 2015

Believe it or not, but S. Italy is shorter than his younger brother. It was recently shown in the new Hetalia series: World stars. XD
BandiBaba Featured By Owner Edited Dec 4, 2014
Why are they so small? My mother's taller than russia...And I'm 14 and 174cm....
ElizabethDChartigan Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
They were created by Japanese, the average Japanese man is like 1,70 cm....but obviously they exaggerate everything....since they made Japan a way shorter to make him more uke...because honestly I don't think that Belarus would be 1,60...she seems a bit taller to me 
mountainsofthemoon Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
This was really helpful, thanks! I've wondered about some of the non-canon character heights myself, although age I can usually take a fairly accurate stab at.
AnaisseSteighart Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
I feel small
tutturtle Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014
I'm American so... what's a centimeter? I only measure in inches and feet
MelaLame Featured By Owner Edited Dec 16, 2014
this is a pretty late response so you may have figured it out already but 1 foot is about 30.5 cm, and 1 inch is about 2.5 cm. so as an example America would be about 5'10"
adelineday Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2014
Apparently 0.393700787 inches, according to a Google search...

This makes me feel tall... I'm 13 and 171.5cm. :P
radiumlowi Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Right here now I'm around the height of N Italy and Iceland's... I guess I've stopped growing but I'm satisfied with it :)
Back to this chart I slightly disagree with Bela and Hungary's height. For HU being a wild tomboy as a kid, she should be about 170 emphasising her image. Belarus... Seems she needs more love from his bro and gigantic genes, at least match up Ukraine's height (UA will be 176)
Yugana-Kagami Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
But I will!
It DOES NOT matter what you think, this is Cannon*, accept it!

*Referring to Belarus' and Hungary's height

P.S. since when can't a "tomboy" be short? That -if anything- is a huge advantage to both girls for fighting...
adelineday Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2014
I'm not even going to bother arguing this time...
Ninjin-chan1717 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think I'm about 92.6 cm... So not fair... *sobs in depression corner with Germany doll*

Vietnam is actually 5'8 and Taiwan is 5'5.
adelineday Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2014
Well, I don't know about Vietnam, but official information states that Taiwan is actually about 4'11, or 150 cm tall.

Just because most women YOU know are that tall mean's that these character's can't be short? 

I'm going to guess your American, or of some other First world country, and you also have an incredibly mixed ethnic background for the sake of my argument. Most people in America, and other world leading countries, especially those filled with mixed heritage tend to be tall, because they are used to more "cushy" lives. They usually are well fed and have access to medical attention; weather or not they can afford it. As we have seen with Prussia and Germany this highly contributes to height, which is why a lot of people form poorer countries are shorter, also people for countries with tightly locked gene pools (Japan, several North, Central, and Western African countries, and a few Latin American countries, if I'm correct)

The average Height in Hungary since around the 2000's is around 5'4, slightly taller than Hungary, but you have to note that Hungary is also pretty curvy and curvy people tend to be short, while they can also be tall. You must also take into account that Hima-papa is Japanese and people there are pretty petite, in both height and structure, and women are also usually short. And again Hetalia is based on STEREOTYPES something people seem to forget ("Why does American have blonde hair and blue eyes?"). And women especially European women are usually stereotyped as dainty and petite, something Hungary was even shown to struggle with. While I agree that  some characters should be taller, especially since not characters technically reaches over 6'0 (just barely there, but only with centimeters), I feel like most of these heights are very appropriate, except for some of the Micro-nations, and Monaco. If Hungary did have to be tall i suggest 5'4 ft./165 cm., which also according to a recent survey is the average height for women around the world not 5'7-9.

I understand you have a height complex, but there's really nothing you can do about it, and your letting yourself feel bad about it, Hetalia isn't saying women can't be tall, but the fact is that A LOT of women are short, and It's a common stereotype against women. And i have to say most of your points are really invalid to why the characters should be taller. Also coming from someone 5'0 to a 5'8 we short people usually see you a cool no mater what you do your height is lovely,  even though I wouldn't change my own...

Im much taller than all the other girls XD Im 1,75 cm I feel like a giant now ._.
Nati13321 Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
No offence but this heights are so asian that it's cinda' wierd... How can Poland be 166? Its almost inpossible, He should be like 175 or something and it's very unlikely that he is 10 cm smaller than lithuania when they should be almost the same height... Switzerland should not be eaven smaller than poland! He should at least be 177. and America should be 180'. Seriously sorry but everyone sounds so small, they are not eaven average to the european sizes! All Japaniese measures are unrealistic compared to the European and american measures. Sorry again but I just cant understand this ;P The average grown man in europe and america is like 175-180 and up, ofcourse there are "small" People too, but I think that the measurements should be changed. Besides Netherland should be gigantic! Netherland is the country With the highest People! And when Finland is higher than Switzerland then it starts to be cinda' ridiculous. I'm sorry again! I hope you won't get me wrong but I personally think that the list should change. ((Sorryyy))
adelineday Featured By Owner May 20, 2014
I'm sorry, but I did not come up with the official heights. I simply estimated, using them as a basis. For example, Finland was canonly stated to be 170 cm tall.

If you really have a problem, you could take it up with Himaruya...
KappaScience Featured By Owner May 14, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
Hong Kong is depicted to be at least 3 inches or more taller than China in the manga, so might wanna change that...

Macau, also, appears to be taller than Hong Kong.
adelineday Featured By Owner May 14, 2014
Where does it show that? 
KappaScience Featured By Owner May 15, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
It's really hard to tell from his appearances, and from further inspection I'd think the estimation would be better a few cm taller than China.

Macau is DEFINITELY taller than the both, however.…
BronyForLife99 Featured By Owner May 11, 2014
well what do you know, I would be taller than sweden here!
Oye22 Featured By Owner May 10, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I think Canada would be a bit taller than America, since the country's land mass is bigger. Maybe... one centimetre XD?
