More about Sweden
- GLOBALSCIENCELLC: Modern history of Sweden from World War I to today, covering all major events on politics, economy, society, and technology.
Sweden is located in the east of the Scandinavian Peninsula (Scandinavia), over which the border to Norway (1619 km) runs from north to south. The neighboring state in the northeast is Finland (586 km). In the east, south and south-west Sweden borders the Baltic Sea, which is preceded by many small islands, the skerries, on the east coast and north of Gothenburg. The largest islands are Gotland and Öland. Of the numerous lakes, especially in central Sweden (also Svealand), Lake Vänern, Lake Vättersee, Lake Mälaren and Lake Hjälmar have the largest area.
In the last ice age, glaciers covered most of the country. When they thawed, the sea penetrated into the central Swedish depression. Inlets (Fjärd) that reach far into the country are evidence of this. In the north (Norrland) many large rivers flow from the Skanden mountain range (up to 2111 m high) to the coast. 57% of Sweden is covered with forest, mainly coniferous forests. Deciduous forests also grow in southern and central Sweden. In the north also propagate Moore from. Swedish botanists and scientists have recognized the outstanding importance of the Lapland region. That is why in 1909 the kingdom was the first European country to designate nine national parks.
With the exception of the south, the climate is predominantly continental because the Scandi largely keep the westerly winds away from the North Atlantic. The summers are therefore relatively dry and warm, the winters long and snowy. The Gulf of Bothnia in the north of the Baltic Sea is covered with ice for up to five months. Precipitation increases from east to west. The midnight sun shines north of the Arctic Circle in summer, and it is dark there for almost two months in winter.
Population and Religion
The population consists mainly of Swedes, Sami and Finns (Swedish Finns) also live in the north (Lapland). In the second half of the 20th century, more and more immigrants were accepted. Measured in terms of population, Sweden took in the most refugees in Europe for a long time.
With an average of 25 residents per km 2 (2017), Sweden is very sparsely populated in a European comparison (Germany: 237 residents per km 2). Most of the population lives in the southern and central parts. A lack of economic prospects has caused many northern Swedes to migrate to the metropolitan areas. Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö form the largest metropolitan areas. In total, 86% of the people live in a city. The number of older people is steadily increasing in relation to the number of younger ones.
In terms of equality for women in work and society as well as their sexual self-determination, Sweden has made headway like hardly any other country. This was also achieved through an extensive range of childcare options in day care facilities. If the child is young or ill, the parents can stay at home. Then they are financially supported by the state.
Since the introduction of the Reformation (1527), the majority of Swedish Christians have belonged to the Evangelical Lutheran “Church of Sweden” (Svenska Kyrkan), which was also the state church until 1999. Around 60% of the population belong to it. The Archbishop of Uppsala, since 2013 a woman for the first time, is at the top of today’s »People’s Church«.

Politics and law
Sweden is one of the oldest monarchies in Europe. At the head is the monarch, since 1973 Charles XVI. Gustav . He only has representative tasks. The executive branch is chaired by the government, chaired by the Prime Minister, since 2014 Stefan Löfven, guided. The prime minister is elected by the parliament (Reichstag) and appoints the ministers. The Reichstag passes laws and controls the government. This form of government is called a parliamentary monarchy. The 349 MPs are elected for four years by proportional representation. Voting and voting is allowed to anyone who is 18 years old. There are numerous political parties. For this reason, coalition governments are usually formed, often also minority governments, when there is no majority in parliament.
Sweden has been a member of the European Union since 1995 and a member state of the Schengen Agreement since 2001, but has not joined the European Economic and Monetary Union (Eurozone). Sweden has an army of around 15,000 soldiers. It does not belong to any military alliance, but works with NATO. The country has long been involved in development aid and the global enforcement of human and social rights.
Swedish law has a long tradition and is based on the Imperial Code of 1734. Sweden was the first country to introduce freedom of the press by law in 1766. The country is one of the countries with the highest newspaper density in the world (160 daily newspapers).
School attendance is compulsory for 7 to 16 year olds. You have to attend the nine-year elementary school and can then switch to a general or vocational upper level. Anyone who has attended grammar school for three years is allowed to study. Uppsala University is the oldest of the 36 universities (founded in 1477).
