See this is my problem. Is the wiki run by riot? I don't think it is
. So that entire list of champions both city-state or assosiated with as far as i'm concerned is full of garbage because it has no offical basis. I'm betting a lot of the problem is people think the wiki=fact. The wiki cannot be considered 100% true because its not run by riot as far as I know
Now maybe they are Demacian reps BUT as far as Riot created lore is concerned NOWHERE does it say that Vayne, Sona, or Poppy are demacian city-state representatives. Its all just Head Cannon invented and popularised.

Heres my thing about poppy. She's an Ambassador. Thats exactly what she is. Yes she is heavily invested in Demacia. Yes she will always side with them over Noxus.
But do you know who else does? Bandle City.
Demacia, Piltover, Bandle City is an established alliance in the storyline. So its not so farfetched to think that w/e Demacia does Bandle City will probably not only support but will send Poppy over to represent them. THAT is why she is not demacian because the alliance isn't even being considered up to this point.
That means that just like poppy. Teemo, Heimerdinger, Janna, Corki, Tristana, Caitlyn and possibly others (Depending on if they're neutral or not) ALL may as well also be considered Demacian if your going to count Poppy as Demacian.
All Poppy is is a representation of Bandle City Interest in Demacia. She is not herself a Demacian Representative.
