The home of the vikings. Have in the past time, governed (0wn3d)Finland, Denmark and Norway. Have always been ahead in development.
The swedish men are tall and strong, because they have to protect their beautiful women from annoying ppl from the other scandinavian countries.

A country with a cool, laid back attitude. Friendly people and beautiful women. EXTREMELY prone to Jimi Hendrix. Good food. A nice place to visit.

Sweden is a great country, its our taxes that makes it good, And we only have about 4-5% unemployment.
You, the taxes helps ALL the people in the country, so we can have free school, free hospitals etc.
What sucks about sweden is all the feminists and that you "cant" be a patriot.
You: Sweden have high taxes
Me: Well, medical treatment is free!

The greatest country in the world but no one seem to get that. If you call yourself a patriot, wear a swedish flag on your shirt or say something good about Sweden you're called a racist and you're considered a anti-immigrant somehow. I'm none of those but I'm proud of Sweden. so stfu

btw, this thing about Sweden having the most sucides in Europe is a load of bull. We consider things as suicide that you don't in other countries. also, studies have shown that doctors in other countries (when they have to confirm the cause of death) don't write what actually happened. If it's suicide they sometimes say it's something else. Not in Sweden though. I'm not kidding.
Me: Sweden is great
Someone else: why don't you say that about all the countries? RACIST! F*CKIN' KKK!

A country in Northern Europe which, apparently, has been the target of inferiority complex-generated ridicule from its neighboring countries.
Finns, Norwegians and Danes all fear Sweden (being the hub and catalyst in high-tech Northern Europe), this has generated many negative entries in the Urban Dictionary. Just look around.

An awesome country in Northern Europe, with tall, beautiful blond men/women, or so the stereotype goes.

Hopefully, it is true...
I can't wait to go to Sweden to see all the sexy blond guys. :3

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 communists 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. plastic-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 claim that Sweden among other things has the highest rate of suicides... but 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.

VOLVO, SAAB, Sandvik, IKEA and Ericsson are some of Swedens export successes.
n. Sweden. Not to be confused with Switzerland.
