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:

I love ICELAND! My favorite character! I knew a couple of icelanders when I was on vacation in Bergen, they were soo cool and funny, i like a lot how you made that character because he reminds me soo much of that couple, they told me that they were great at skiing and loved sports. And they two were blond and beutiful like angels, I almost could see them sparkling

I've lived in America for decades and never seen a German person treated anything but nicely, nor have I heard of such a thing before. I am skeptical that this is some frequent thing. I mean, we're crazy about dachshunds, and WWII was a loooong time ago. The only Nazis I know of are the neos in the States.

A better Finnish stereotype is in a BT-42 running rings around their enemies even after their tracks blown off, rocking out on their kanteles the whole time. http://gup.wikia.com/wiki/Jatkosota_High_School

Awesome how the German stereotype changes from place to place! In America for example are they considered sternly, strict, without humor, big and strong. In Switzerland tough, they are seen as arrogant, clumsy, narcissistic, irritating and bad listeners....
