This puzzle belongs to the puzzle series: A-Countries-Journey
This is part 3.
New country! Welcome to the UN! Here is your task for today:
Germany's Cryptics Factory: where the cryptics are always cryptic!
Here are some untested cryptics, just for you!
- SQDDR falling (6)
- France and Germany affirm magic (5)
- He, Don, has store items (5)
- Puerile Yoda’s Japanese neighbor (4)
- At night, a British official (2)
China's Confusion Puzzles App: we have monies!
Rome's Riddling Cards: Classical Riddles for a more... civilized age.
The third is a medal,
for a long forgotten lover,
of the languages of yore, (ah, so romantic),
its land is like no other.
The medal is shiny,
common for rings, (ah, so much romance!),
when he asks what it’s made of,
What do they sing?
Le finale en FRANCE! (Illyria, honhonhonhon!)

What does the UN want you to get?
Hint One, from a Germany
Ach! Hallo, klein one! SrDrT jostles fur position, while SQDDR is already high above. Affirming magic has to do with planks, and the Japanese neighbor doesn’t really exist, mein kleine Freund(or Freundin, Ich kann’t forget…).
Hint Two, from the UN
Rotate the first, translate the second, be wary of the third, watch the fourth, and combine the fifth. Of the first, of course. The third main is own-solvable, of course! But you need the others to understand France.
Hint Three, from another Germany
Hmmm... maybe these were too hard... Don sounds like he's a model. And remember, rotate the first one only its number! As for the third puzzle, the medal is a metal. The lover is a country, but its language is far away from its roots.
Hint Four, from a Switzerland jeweler
From what I hear, the third was popular in the 1960's and such. By the way, he isn't very big and he's young.
Hint Five, from inside you
You feel the friend is somewhat imaginary, that third country seems lonely…
Hint Six, from the third
Sometimes, people think I have a monster inside of me. Other times, I'm just an irrelevant communist. But I'm not.
Hint Seven (i think i made this too hard)
Didn't know that it was FRENCH that diverged most from its roots in LANGUAGE, but it's in places, @WoomyRogue!
Hint Eight, from Mater Romae
It's a special metal. 78/799, but only for May the Fourth be with you.
BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG HINTEH BOI, from Germany
SrDrT is location in clues into numbers into the solutions. SQDDR falling is above TREES, so... Don dons things, and he wears solutions. Puerile is to a baby is Yoda is to...
VERY BIG HINT, QUICKLY, FIVE HOURS REMAIN!
China is a visionary, France needs all three keys, translate platinum, and I gave you the big hint about Germany's. Hurry! Hurry! The hour is nigh!
I came through space and time to say: Switzerland likes SQDDR, He, don, dons store items and wears _____. Puerile Yoda is a baby, his neighbor is in the interblags (see xkcd) and, to some, has drip.
PROGRESS THUS FAR
@xyldke has solved Rome's Riddling Cards! Now y'all need to solve Germany's Cryptics Factory to solve China's.
