A shining beacon of freedom and progress, located in the chilly northern parts of Europe. Neighbour to Denmark, Norway and Finland, and often confused with at least one of them. Most Americans cannot distinguish Sweden from the mountain nation of Switzerland.

Famous for not only its a large population of very blonde and beautiful women, but also its history of Vikings, the music of partly forgotten bands like Abba and very high taxes. Under the government of the social democrats, Sweden has the highest tax rate in the world. The corruption is nearly non-existant and the population is well-educated, better than the average European or American citizen. There is no country in the world where atheism is better established than in Sweden, and the Swedish church, unlike the churches in many other countries, has little real power or influence. Sweden is also the most equal country in the world, gender-wise.

An overwhelming majority of Swedes surf the web. Although home to a relatively small part of the world (9 million), Sweden still manages to produce people and projects of great initiative and ingenuity. One of these projets is The Pirate Bay, the worlds largest BitTorrent tracker site. Another Swedish project is the famous KaZaA, a peer-to-peer fileshare client. Sweden also produces a lot of good gamers, not seldom seen leading the worldwide scoreboards. Sweden is also home to the Nobel Prize committee and host of the majority of Nobel Prizes.

Famous Swedish words in the English language are "smorgasbord", "tungsten" and "ombudsman". Famous Swedish people are Peter Stormare, Ingrid Bergman, Ingemar Bergman, Stellan Skarsgård, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alfred Nobel.

Sweden is basically hell on earth. The country is cheap, so is the population. Swedes generally smell bad, as they like to follow their primitive viking traditions and bath anually. Swedes are not as good looking as their neighboers from Norway and Finland.

They all have fucking bad music taste - all of them wake up to Abba and go to bed with Aqua.
- Look at that fag!

- Oh, he's probably from Sweden.

- Attention, passengers, we are having a emergency landing in Sweden. From there on, you will get a train trip to Norway, all expenses paid.
- Oh fuck, not Sweden*suicide*

A country full of communists and socialists. If you tell the truth, people call you a nazi.

Also the country with the highest taxes in the world. The people are held hostage by the Social "Democratic" governments fag ass economical policy. The high taxes and gas prices (over $6 per gallon) has resulted in a high unemployment rate of about 25%, those lazy ass people are sitting around all day living on other people's tax money.

This definition was written by me, a Swede living in the USA.
Only communists and slackers wants to live in SWEDEN.

Quite possibly the most uninhabitable country since Canada (no, that's just a joke because I hate Canadians and Canada so much...).

Everything that sucks about Sweden:
1)The taxes are mind-blowing
2)It's run by a communist government
3)There is no other country on Earth that gives such power to feminazis
4)There is no other country on Earth that has so many brain dead politicians

And the list goes on and on! It doesn't ever seem to stop! I could probably write a novel on how many bad things there are about Sweden. However, to make things fair, here are all the good things about Sweden.

Everything that rocks about Sweden:
1)The landscape looks kind of nice
2)Not overpopulated

And that's pretty much all I can think of. I can probably count the number of good things about Sweden on my fingers. Basically, this country can be summarized in two categories, "too little of everything good" and "too much of everything bad".
Sweden: You wouldn't want to live there after living in a better place, such as anywhere else in the world, but it would be nice for a visit. Well, maybe not.

Sweden is a country which many Americans don't know much about. One of the most common prejudice] is that the entire population is blonde and tall (which is not even remotely true), others may believe that the country is run by communist]s and that ABBA is the only music arrived therefrom. Fact is that Sweden may have more blondes than e.g. Spain, but there's still at least 40% who aren't. The current government of the mentioned country is Social Democratic, which greatly differs from Marxism and Leninism.

The musical scene has of course developed since ABBA, and for a population of 9.000.000, Sweden has produced an awful lot of successful bands and artists. Some of these would be Millencollin], Hammerfall], The Hives], Ace of Base] and The Cardigans].
Many songs in the U.S. pop]-industry has been written by Swedes also.. among these you can find many songs performed by Britney Spears], Kelly Clarkson], Backstreet Boys], N'Sync] and such.

Some believe in the myth that Sweden has the highest rate of suicides... I've read about the myth, but I don't know where these "numbers" originated. As some wise person once said (disputed who) "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics." :)

It does -not- snow 12 month per year. Actually, it snows barely 3 months every year in the capital city - you get more snow if you go North, less if you go South.
In the summers, many Swedes on holiday tend to go to their vacation houses in less populated societies. Yes, a big amount of middle-class to upper-class households have these second houses. And they can afford them, even though all their money is stolen through taxes by "the evil communist regime".

Sweden is aimed at being very equal country. Equality between genders is a highly valued issue and neo-feminism is one of the most popular ideologies (which has led many to believe that so called "feminazis]" are running the country). All religions basicly has the same rights, and having the church involved in politics has been more or less banned for 300-400 years. The atheist population is also a vast majority. The schools serves alternative food for Muslims and others when the ordinary lunch collides with their relgious beliefs. Oh, and by the way, yes! They do have free school lunches :D Very good food too, even :)

Oh, and about schools... most of the swedish population is well educated. Some would say that swedes generally speak better english than most Americans, and this is caused by English being a standard subject with the same importance as Swedish. Also, Sweden does not dub films, videogames and such, but tend to use sub-titles.
The country has in fact no real "official language" though, and Swedish is legally regarded as a minority language.
n. Sweden. Not to be confused with Switzerland.

Sweden - Safe cars and blue flag

A penis, derived from the map on the tails side of the 2006 euro, which has Norway removed, leaving Sweden to look like a penis and Finland the testicles.
Ooh, I just trapped my Sweden under my Finlands.
