Despite the average ignorant american calling Finland a Scandinavian country; it is not. It is situated between Scandinavia (Norway, Sweden and Denmark) and Russia. Finnish genetics are *completely* different than that of both Russians and Scandinavians. The language is also completely different from the languages spoken by both aforementioned groups, aside from the 5-6% minority of Swedish speaking hill billies on the west coast and south coast. Finland has been top 10 highest ranked "Standards of Living" in the world numerous times, despite drinking the most alcohol in western Europe and having a very high Suicide rate due in part to Seasonal Affective Disorder.
