What country does the following text represent?
Forward By confidence, we Union seek justice, peace and the sword.
Because we know from my previous answer,
Massachusetts's state motto is: Ense petit placidam sub libertate quietem, meaning roughly: By the sword we seek peace, but peace only under liberty correlating to: "we Union seek justice, peace and the sword"; Louisiana's state motto is: Union, justice, and confidence, "We Union seek justice..." "Forward by confidence; and Wisconsin's motto is "Forward", the first word of the riddle
We can put it all together, and we get:
The first two initials of Massachusetts; MA, the abbreviation of Lousiana, LA, and the Abbreviation for Wisconsin., WI. Putting these together, we get Malawi, a country in Africa.
I'd like to thank humn for helping me realize the correlation with the state names.
The country is
Norway,because the initials spell out FBU. This is the airport code for Fornebu airport,Oslo
The United Kingdom.
This is because you capatilized:
Forward, Confidence, and Union, and the Five Brigades Union is the United Kingdom.
I didn't find any further evidence for the United Kingdom, so I very well could be wrong.
Burkina Faso, because the clue is a reference to the country's motto
