Yeah, the mainland would stop pouring money onto those worthless pieces of rocks if they actually separate. So no wonder.

According to a popular legend, it's based on an old German pub song. When you think of it, it IS kind of... adequate for us.

The French national anthem is definitely my favorite. It really gives you the "let's go!" feeling.

Sibelius Finlandia is amazing. Really wish it would be our anthem some day.

As for the topic i have to say Russian anthem. It's on that fine line of being funny epic and just epic.

1.USA
2.Russia
3.Sweden
4.Finland

OT: The situtation whit Åland. They wan't to be intependent but they know as well as anybody that they couldn't cope without Finland pouring money there. Continent Finns can't even buy land there. It's a burden for Finland and a profit for Åland.
They sure like to ***** about it though.

Though we shouldn't let this discussion veer into Finnish language politics... it's a quagmire that could cause wars if Finns weren't all buttoned up due to the cold half a year, and same way the second half because they're drunk.

Finland can't even use it for military purposes because of the peace treaty.

Well, Åland isn't part of Sweden. It's an autonomous area of Finland.

Actually, we're hoping that the Russkies would be interested in taking it off our hands. A slice of Karelia containing Vyborg would be more than adequate for compensation.

They already have, in fact. The officials in Åland and Finland proper simply don't care.

Sorry, still can make it out. It's like in Holiwood films all Russians are played by Poles or Serbs, and usually you can't understand their Russian.

Vyborg is ruins now days. It would be too expensive for a small country like Finland to rebuild it.

You don't have where to waste money? Need a black hole which would suck in 1/3 of GDP not to mention trillions in resettlement costs?

Who said anything of rebuilding? We simply relocate its population and turn it into the world's largest outdoor museum.
