    Julian Assange has decided to go to the U.S. after Chelsea Manning's release from prison (May 17).

    Sweden is very very well known throughout the western world. If someone's heard of only one Nordic country, it tends to be Sweden.

    Oh yeah. Pretty much every American knows about Sweden. I mean, we may not know anything about your culture or politics, but we love your meatballs and Abba. Plus, that hilarious accent.

    A lot of young sports fans over here know about Sweden because Zlatan Ibrahimović plays for Manchester United.

    We try to forget about Sweden but then we get dragged kicking and screaming to IKEA by our significant others.

    You're kind of like the quintessential middle of the road Nordic country I guess?
    Like if you played Nordic Mario Kart, Sweden would be Mario.
    You are right in the middle with the biggest population and all.

    To be fair Sweden is also pretty big on the "neutrality", but it's not our main thing to be unbearably smug about.

    You guys were neutral during the Cold War, but that's passť since you've joined the EU, if I'm not mistaken.

    Well in practice we've been up to all kinds of not neutral sheenanigans. And we know very well who's bitch we are.

    But i'm fairly certain that the official stance is still that we're non-aligned and not bound by any military alliances.
