well the people in the main cities see to be of germanic decent, the ishbarites are supposed to be mideastern, i'm almost certain at least people of dublith are asian, as for the girl... she doesn't look black to me... maybe latino or mulatto or maybe even a variation of the ishbarites.

They're supposed to be either German or English. I mean, not that those countries exist in the FMA world, but that's what the creator based those character designs off of.

Witch-san, you're referring to Pannya, right? happy.gif

I agree that they're probably some sort of European race...rolleyes.gif

In the manga, there's a group of characters from "across the desert" who look very decidedly Asian. happy.gif

Must be some kind of race in their world. o_O We can't really call them German or English can we? Since Ishbalan isn't a race in our world.

*nods* well i could kinda go either way... eithe English or German. because in the Manga there is Xing which is across a large dessert and the people of Zing do have a asain style of clothing and Masks. Also they were once in some what of a quarrel with the country above them. (may symbolize germany or anything like that) *doesn't know much history in that area happy.gif;;;;*

I say the people in Central are like Germans because of the Fuhrer (German for leader I think)
Ishbalans would be like people in the mideast.

Xing's supposed to represent China, Central is supposed to represent England, and the areas of Ishbal and Lior are supposed to represent the Middle East. The language of the series is set in English, so we're supposed to imagine that's the main international language.

[spoiler]Supposedly, when Hohenheim created the Philosopher's Stone, he used the bodies of those who had died from the Plague in what was supposed to be "London" (their world, not the other side). Since that's where Central's located, we're led to believe that the area is the AU version of England. [/spoiler]

or if you give it a twist. you could consider the Ishbaran's as the Jews and the military as Nazi Germany. since the war was more of a massacre o.o
