    Which one is the best? Iceland and Finland not included.

    I find it hard to pick favorites, though I would probably say Sweden is the best because

    1. Swedish fish
    2. IKEA
    3. ABBA
    4. their flag is much better than Denmark and Norway's.
    5. Their special letters in their language look better in words than Denmark/Norway's special letters.

    Y'all should say what you think, too.

    Ikea sucks. :p Other than that I mostly have a positive view of all of them.

    I like all of them too, but still, one has to be better.

    There's something about Sweden I just don't trust.

    Norway is beautiful.
    Sweden is uppity but would be a great place to live.
    Danes sound like they're choking when they talk.

    For particle board furniture, Ikea makes some good stuff. I got quite a bit of my apartment there.

    Unless it can be demonstrated that the other nations do more for science, anybody else other than Sweden can go away.

    America.

    I don't even have to qualify it with anything else. Just America.

    I've always loved Norway, especially their flag.

    America is more than Scandinavian. Should have qualified my statement.

    Sweden. I like the Swedish food I've had at IKEA, most of my bedroom furniture comes from IKEA, and there is something not quite right with the Swedes that I find interesting. Perhaps it is their repressed imperialist tendencies?

    I have noticed that some Swedes are overtly nationalist and somewhat uppity to the point of being annoying, too. We had a foreign exchange student at my school last year (or the year before that?) and he was from Sweden, and even though his name was Erik he told everyone to call him 'The Swede' and talked about Sweden all the time like everyone cared how Swedish people make their cookies, even though no one did. It seemed terribly arrogant to me, but I don't think it's very widespread and instead it was just an outlier

    Norwegians tend to be very nationalist too, if this forum is anything to go by. They seem to scream their nationality even when it's not relevent, and they post things about Norway that no one but a Norwegian would care about. I think I read someone say on this forum (someone from Germany, I think) that they like to talk about Norway so much to make Norway seem greater than it is, because Norway has had a very small place in history when compared to Sweden and Denmark.

    The difference is Norway is awesome, and Sweden's just a cold boring place.

    It would be, but Norway is way cooler.

    I can stand on my coffee table and it doesn't break. It's pretty solidly put together, looks good (assuming you don't flip it over) and was rather inexpensive.
