I think it means 'Useless Italy'? Not sure where I read that in truth but that's what I was under the impression it meant.

Hetalia is a portmanteau of "hetare" which means lazy/useless in Japanese and Italia, which refers to Italy.

I can see how hetalia can mean 'useless italy' because in an anime called hetalia, italy is very useless!
