Big Brother Sweden
I've often heard Swedes say this, and the other Nordics have very different reactions to it.
Not sure how most Norwegians feel about it, but the few I've heard comment on it seemed to be okay with it.

No way Sweden is Big Brother anymore..
Norway has enough money to buy Sweden.
Besides a Big brother would not let his little brother get stomped.
History is against Sweden here. ;)
That and a metric shitload of money..

There is no way Sweden is the big brother! They lost so many battles where the odds were in their favor. No way they are the big brother. I would be ok with Denmark but not Sweden..

Given all that-- and the rivalry between Christian and Gustav-- I have to wonder what Sweden and Denmark think of Eric Flint's 1632/Ring of Fire series. (and the results for Kristina and Ulrik, for that matter)
Quick precis-- With the help of a small west virginia coal mining town sent back to 1632, Gustav turns Sweden into King Europe-- or at least of the Central and Northern European areas. Denmark helps France, at first, but after getting pummeled, joins a Swedish-lead Union of Kalamar. Prince Ulrik is betrothed to Gustav II Adolphus' daughter, Kristina.

i have never feel that Sweden is a big brother for the other Nordics. But if it is so then Sweden is then not a good big brother.

that reminds me how stupid denmark is, to complain about your nuclear plant in Skåne but still buying its power XD nahh but seriously that plant sucks, and maybe we descended from swedes but swedes descended from monkeys, and cheap beer is way better than sjötbullar or what u call em even though they does taste good XD

Actually both Danes and Swedes are mentioned in the book "Germania" by the Roman historian Tacitus in 98 ad and he claims that Danes are descended from Swedes. And we'll stop telling you what to do when you stop telling us where we can put our nuclear power plants. =)

Never really seen Sweden as a big brother to Iceland. They've never been close to us or anything :/

Only Denmark and Finland are our little brothers. Since Norway didn't even have a nation until 1905, it would make more sense for you to refer to us as your dad =)

Say whatever you want Sweden, but let me remind you that your shirt is a ripoff of Denmark's t-shirt.
