They’re finally here! Finland and Iceland (and Germany)!

The joke behind this is that everybody agrees that Sweden, Norway and Denmark make up Scandinavia, but some say that Finland and Iceland are part of it too. Most people in Sweden, Norway and Denmark doesn’t consider them to be part of Scandinavia though.
No invitation for you!

The Finnish stereotype is a masculine drunk mute with a knife. I had to read up on this because Denmark don’t have a lot to do with Finland, but when I read the description I knew I had to include him sooner or later. :XD:

Icelanders are considered to be more beautiful than other Nordic people. They also see themselves as risk-takers, who love extreme sports, so I gave him some sporty cloth and sunglasses, and little sparkles to emphasise his prettiness. :)

I've read that when Germans go to America they often get yelled at and called Nazis. Most people here are way beyond that because we live right next to them and see them quite often. Instead our German stereotype is a loud guy with really bad hair and cloth, who loves sausages.
My father’s sister married a German, so I did everything in my power not to make the character look like him. :XD:

Yes Denmark is included because of history and culture but Skandinavia is named after the mountain chain called Skanderna (in swedish) wich runs in both Sweden and Norway.

@MizzNina Denmark is included because of the strong historical and cultural ties, not just the language. Scandinavia is named after Scania, which, as you likely know, used to be Danish.

@marrow Most likely true.

Somebody probably (hopefully) already wrote this, but I don't want to read all the comments, and I had to say something.

Sweden, Norway and Denmark are Scandinavia because the Scandinavian half island consists of Sweden and Norway, and Denmark is included because of the language.


Finland and Iceland are neither part of the Scandinavian half island and their language is really different from Norweigean, Swedish and Danish. But they are still our Nordic brothers and sisters. <3

Another American giving a perspective on the Germans. To Americans, Germans are funny guys who are on vacation, drunk, and talking about their last trip to Turkey or somewhere. We are starting to think they travel a lot.

The Swedish are all blond weirdos with college degrees, Norwegians make really scary music and like boats, and the Danish are all related to their royalty. The Finnish seem to think they spend too much time partying, and Icelanders are all dorky eco-nuts with weird religious beliefs.

Is that about right?

Finland just wants the music back on, he's actually a party animal. Right?
