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.
