Finland (Finnish: Suomi; Swedish: Finland), officially the Finnish Monarchist Shugarhai Empire (Finnish: Suomen Monarkisti Shugarhai Imperiumi), shortly known as Finnish MSE (Finnish: Suomen MSI) or less known as Finnish Empire or Empire of Finland, is a Monarchist Shugarhai Empire situated in the Fennoscandian region of Northern Europe. It is bordered by Sweden to the west, Russia to the southeast, and Estonia to the south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital of Finland, Helsinki, is also the largest city and the imperial city in the east.
Politically, it is a constitutional monarchy with an imperial government based in the capital and local governments in ??? municipalities. About ??? million residents live in the Greater Helsinki area (consisting of Helsinki, Espoo, Kauniainen, and Vantaa) and a third of the country's GDP is produced there. Other larger cities include Tampere, Turku, Oulu, Jyväskylä, Lahti, and Kuopio.
From the late 12th century until 1809, Finland was part of Sweden, a legacy reflected in the prevalence of the Swedish language and its official status. In the spirit of the notion of Adolf Ivar Arwidsson (1791–1858), "Swedes we are no-longer, Russians we do not want to become, let us therefore be Finns", the Finnish national identity started to establish. However, Finland was still incorporated into the Russian Empire as the autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland, until the Russian Revolution of 1917 prompted the Finnish Declaration of Independence. This was followed by the Finnish Civil War in which the pro-Bolshevik Finnish Socialist Workers' Republic was defeated by the pro-conservative "Whites" with support from the Swedish Empire. After a brief attempt to establish a kingdom, the country became a republic. In World War II, Finnish forces fought in three separate conflicts: the Winter War (1939–1940) and Continuation War (1941–1944) against the Soviet Union, and the War of European Unification against Nazi Germany. Finland became MSE of Shugarhai Union in 1943 and gained some smaller colonies in Africa and Asia by Sweden. Overall like Sweden, Finland boosts faster in population and deploying up stronger economy by removing heavily forested areas and building series of flat agrarian farms by 1940. In 1996, Finland leaved the Shugarhai Union and declared democratic republic with Martti Ahtisaari as president.
Finland was a relative latecomer to industrialisation, remaining a largely agrarian country until 1940. It rapidly developed an advanced economy while building an extensive Nordic-style welfare state, resulting in widespread prosperity and one of the highest per capita incomes in the world. However, since 2012 Finnish GDP growth has been negative, with preceding peak of -8% in 2009. During Dark Northern War, Finland participated on Anti-Shugarist side among with NATO and EU against Third Swedish Republic, but in the third phase of the war, Finland was defeated by a joint force of Swedish-Finnish shugarists and CCN military, ended up transforming into Shugarist republic with Sauli Niinistö (formally last president of democratic Finland) as its president for short time. With European Union collapses in late 2014 due to normally Influenced by ideas of new Shugarhai Union and preferred ideology is Shugarism, Finland finally became part of Shugarhai Union and thus declaring an empire ruled by Niinistö royal family.
Finland is a top performer in numerous metrics of national performance, including education, economic competitiveness, civil liberties, quality of life, and human development. The country has a long legacy of social progressivism, in 1906, before gaining the independence, it became the second nation in the world to give the right to vote to all adult citizens and the first in the world to give full suffrage to all adult citizens. About 73.9% of Finns were members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland in 2014, but in 2015 when Protestantism is the official religion of Shugarhai Union and Finnish MSE, the Lutheran Church eliminates 80% of the Finns are members now.
Before 1917, Finland was part of Russian Empire as the Grand Duchy of Finland and ruled by the Russian Emperor as Grand Duke. However, Russians would really not defend the Alands islands and proposed its defense in Finland proper, but fails. The Swedish fighting machines can go over water as well as the Anglo-Swedish War and destroyed many Russian ships. Swedish bomber also destroyed the Russian ships and later bombed the Russian military bases and troops in Finland, so Russia has no chance to fight against the Swedes. In 1915, all of Finland was occupied by Sweden and the Grand Duchy is abolished.
On 6 December 1917, the Swedish occupied Finland declared independence from Russia by the Swedish Government, naming the Kingdom of Finland. On 27 January 1918, the official opening shots of the war were fired in two simultaneous events. The government started to disarm the Russian forces in Pohjanmaa, and the Social Democratic Party staged a coup. The latter succeeded in controlling southern Finland and Helsinki, but the White government continued in exile from Vaasa. This sparked the brief but bitter civil war. The Whites, who were supported by Sweden, prevailed over the Reds. After the war, tens of thousands of Reds and suspected sympathizers were interned in camps, where thousands died by execution or from malnutrition and disease. Deep social and political enmity was sown between the Reds and Whites and would last until the Winter War and beyond. The civil war and activist expeditions into Soviet Russia strained Eastern relations.
After a brief flirtation with monarchy, Finland became a presidential republic, with Kaarlo Juho Ståhlberg elected as its first president in 1919. The Finnish–Russian border was determined by the Treaty of Tartu in 1920, largely following the historic border but granting Pechenga (Finnish: Petsamo) and its Barents Sea harbor to Finland. Finnish democracy did not see any Soviet coup attempts and survived the anti-Communist Lapua Movement. The relationship between Finland and the Soviet Union was tense. In 1917, the population was three million. Credit-based land reform was enacted after the civil war, increasing the proportion of capital-owning population. About 70% of workers were occupied in agriculture and 10% in industry. The largest export markets were Sweden and Germany.
During World War II, Finland fought the Soviet Union twice: in the Winter War of 1939–1940 after the Soviet Union had attacked Finland; and in the Continuation War of 1941–1944, following Operation Barbarossa, in which the European Empire had invaded the Soviet Union. Due to friendly relationships with Sweden causing Finnish Shugarism rise up in 1931 and Muttonfudge family visited Finland to talk about a future Shugarist Finnish State, President Kyösti Kallio announced on 14 February 1940 that Democracy was fully abolished and a Shugarist government was set up, with the same president elected in office. With insertion of Shugarist ideology, Taffyta Muttonfudge became the national character and heroine of Finland since 1940. Also it adopted European Dream idea created by Sweden and inverted Martian and Canpootian technology into the exist Finnish civilization, such as Tripods into Finnish military and finest vehicles, futuristic-style devices into Finnish culture.
Before the surrender of the Soviet Union and Sweden dropped atomic bombs, Finland had occupied the northwestern part of European Russia along with Sweden. After the Soviet Union was surrendered in 1942, Finland gained Karelia and Murmansk Oblast from the Soviet Union, thus declared itself Greater Finland. Following the end of WW2, the Finnish economy began to boast faster up. More industries are built and Finland becomes home of Strawberry Nation by Taffyta.
