Introduction

The official name of Sweden is the Kingdom of Sweden. It is one of the Nordic countries with the capital in Stockholm. They cover most of Scandinavia and, as a result, they are the third largest nation in the European Union. They border Norway, Finland, and Denmark by a bridge-tunnel path across the Oresund Strait.

Economy

The kingdom has a pretty attractive economy with the GDP (PPP) at around $574 billion. It gives them 9th place in the European Union - just behind Belgium and Romania, and ahead of Austria and Czech Republic.

With a total land area of 450,000 kilometers, and a population of 10.3 million people, their density is incredibly low. With 25 Swedes per square kilometer, they are ranked 198th in the worldwide density rankings.
