Map of Sweden

Last update 2 June, 2017

Sweden (Swedish: Sverige German: Schweden Polish: Szwecja Latin: Suécia) lies in the northern and central parts of Europe, and is one of two countries originating from the Scandinavian Peninsula. The capital, Stockholm, is situated on the eastern coast of central Sweden and is a part of the region Svealand. Sweden borders Norway, Denmark, United Kingdom, Finland, Lithuania and Germany. The main language in Sweden is Swedish, but most citizens of Sweden are very good at English and have no problems communicating with other citizens of Erepublik.

Until August 2011, Sweden was in a union with Denmark called the Homonavian Union (Homonavia). It's now a part of the Pacifica alliance. Sweden has previously been part of ATLANTIS, EDEN, ONE, Asgard and Orion.

Citizen-shape.gif Citizen-shape.gif Population

The population of Sweden was very small until mid-December 2007 when lots and lots of members from the Swedish ultra-liberal forum Flashback [2]discovered the game and started playing, since then the population boomed and increased with 500+ citizens every month (until May 2008) with a staggering 744 new citizens between January and February. Due to this, Sweden became the first super power in eRepublik.

However, a few months later, in September 2008, Sweden dropped off the top 5 population chart. After that the population continued to dwindle and after the V2 catastrophe, Sweden had as low as 1500 citizens. During the following months the population was quite stable thanks to a a large amount of new players daily. But in 2010, less and less newer players joined and with a small babyboom in early 2011, the number of new players has quickly declined since then. As a result the Swedish population has continued to decline since that time. In February 2017, the population passed 350 and as of June 2017, Sweden has 341 citizens.

History

2007

The first Swedish Party was Samlokaliseringspartiet, that came to life in the late November, the party leader Landie won a landslide victory being the only presidential candidate on December 1st and thus became Sweden's first president. The party became inactive a few months later.

On December 1st, Sweden's oldest active party saw the light of day, namely Arbetarepartiet MSAP. It has often been a very controversial party but it has undoubtedly had a very big impact on Sweden. Soon after on December 2, Högerpartiet (later Piratpartiet) was formed taking the name from a small party in real life Sweden.

Only a few days before Christmas, Sweden got a third party which would take the country by surprise. On December 20 the Flashback Sweden (FBS) party was formed and although they had a rocky start with a party leader that was not interested in his position, the party finally voted in Carradine who became Swedens second president in January 2008. At the same day, another party was formed, Det Nya Sverige (DNS), it would become one of FBS main rival during 2008.

Several smaller parties was also formed in December such as: AnarkoKapitalistisk Front, Grogg, Ultraliberal Front, Sverige i Första Ledet, Akt!va and Ny Framtid. Most of them did not last for long. But one of them, Akt!va, merged with Piratpartiet after a few weeks and later in 2008 they merged with DNS.

2008

Flashback Sweden dominated the Swedish politics during 2008. They held a majority of the congress seats and all elected presidents between January 2008 and February 2010 represented Flashback Sweden!

During the Swedish occupation of Poland following the Second Sweden-Germany War, most of the new Polish citizens got placed in Sweden. The Polish people in Sweden created a political party named Polish Secessionist Front. During the summer of 2008, they became one of the biggest parties of Sweden and was now seen as a threat for Swedens security. As a result of this, the Swedish government decided to return the Polish regions in September 2008 and from now on, Poland would become one of the strongest countries in the new world. The party quickly became inactive after the liberation of Poland.

2009

Flashback Sweden continued to dominate Swedish politics. But in January 2009, a new party was formed, namely FRONT. These parties would become rivals for the upcoming two years. In March 2009 FRONT managed to get more seats in the congress and in the same month they were only 6 votes away from winning the presidential election. During 2009, FRONT won several of the presidential elections.

MSAP faced several successful coup attempts during 2009. A group of right-wing politicians took control of the party in April 2008 and their leader, Neppons, renamed it to "Neppolens Nationalgarde", the group later left MSAP and formed a party that shortly later would become Nationalgardet. Following the coup, MSAP reformed into Folket for a few months until they started using their old name again.

On December 1, a new left-wing party was formed, Folkhemsdemokraterna. The party consisted mainly of people from MSAP/Folket who were disappointed by their leadership. Some of the new members also came from FBS. An unknown part of the money to create the party was sponsored by right-wing politicions, who wanted to split the left-wing politicians into two parties. This plan was quite successful and during the upcoming time, MSAP and FHD refused to cooperate with each other.

2010

Timeline of the Swedish parties 2007-2016.

In January 2010, Liberala Vikingar was formed when DNS and NG merged, the party later changed name to Partiet and one of their politicians, Valnad, became president in November 2010 and was the Swedish president during 6 months following that. In late 2010, FRONT also became inactive.

The Swedish-Denmark union, Homonavia, was founded in late 2010 and most of the Danish people assembled in their own party called Norsefire.

2011

When the Sweden-Denmark union ended in August 2011, the Norsefire party became inactive and the party ID was taken over by newly created MarknadsPartiet.

In December 2011, Nationalgardet was formed once again. Three parties, Partiet, MarknadsPartiet and a smaller one, "Nybörjardemokraterna", merged in order to become the biggest party in Sweden. One of the main goals with this party was to improve Sweden's relations with Norway and Finland. The relation with Norway was at an all time low because the former Swedish president had supported a Serbian PTO of Norway.

2012

Nationalgardet dominated the Swedish politics during the most of 2012. 10 out of 12 elected presidents represented NG. Somewhere in late 2012 or possibly in early 2013, Flashback Sweden once a gain surpassed NG in number of members.

2013

In March 2013, MSAP once again faced a PTO attempt. This time three quite new parties wanted to merge into one party and also take over MSAP. The attempt failed and instead they formed Imperialistisk Diktatur, which often were considered as a troll party.

2014

Not much happened in the Swedish parties during 2014, most of them continued to slowly lose members. 2014 was the last year the the congress used the forum to discuss in a greater scale. Since then, internal PM-groups have been the main platform for information and discussions.

2015

A new party, "Storasyster", were active during a couple of months in early 2015. They managed to win the president elections in March and April of that year. This was the first time a that small party won the president election.

Starting in October 2015, Folkhemsdemokraterna managed to win the presidental election 6 out of 7 times. Thanks to some help from Nationalgardet, they were able to keep the biggest party, Flashback Sweden, from the presidential throne for most of that time.

2016

The population and activity in all political parties has continued to decline in all political parties. Some more than others. Nationalgardet surpassed Flashback Sweden in number of members in the late summer of 2016 and shortly later also in terms of congress seats. In the second half of 2016 and in the early half of 2017, Nationalgardet won the majority of the presidential elections.

Imperialistiskt Diktatur became very inactive in late 2016 since one of their main politicians (Maze) had quit the game. The inactive party was taken over in November 2016, but that party would shortly later also end up inactive.

Instead, a smaller party that was established in 2010 named Gamlingarna, became one of the more or less permanent top 5 parties.

2017

The activity continued to decline and only 69 citizens voted in the presidential election of May 2017.

Sweden has for a long time been one of the strongest countries in the game. But just like the population, Sweden's power has declined during the years. Today, Sweden is a quite small country. Most of the damage comes from a smaller number of older citizens, compared to most other countries, Sweden has a quite old population. Most of the active younger players have specialized in the air module, most of them can be found in the Military Unit Swedish Air Force, which was founded in November 2016.

The Swedish Military (TSM) has been a very big organisation with many different platoons, leaders and citizens doing all kinds of work to help the country. Nowadays, most of this work is done by the government. The well known Military Unit "TSM-SOG" (Special Operations Group), is well known and has won countless battles for Sweden.

The Swedish Military and its newspaper Försvaret is the formal way of public orders and information to the public.


Icon-pact.gif MPPs

Sweden has Mutual Protection Pacts with all of its allies in Pacifica. As of June 2016, they also have MPPs with Serbia, Slovenia and France.

Fight-war.gif Wars

Icon-war.png Military history

Icon-Sweden.png Icon-Denmark.png The Öresund War or Sweden-Denmark War

The Öresund War broke out April 21, 2008 when Swedish tanks rolled into Hovedstaden, and ended April 23, 2008. The war was spurred on by the Danish President Grev Per who insulted the Swedish people by calling them Homo-swedes, which they thought was a kind of ape. Critics in Sweden took this act as a way to provoke a full scale assault on Danish soil, to make the International Brigades arm themselves and send aid to Denmark. Though, this plan failed and the Swedish army marched into Vejle only one day after the attack at the capital. On the third day of the war, the Danish forces surrendered and Sweden declared the annexation of Denmark.

Icon-Sweden.png Icon-Germany.png Sweden-Germany War

Sweden attacked Germany May 1, 2008 and the war ended May 20, 2008, Sweden won. Germany was later given back some of their land in exchange of agreeing to these terms.

  • Sweden and Germany shall have peace and the regions of Brandenburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and Saxony-Anhalt shall once again be 'German'.
  • Sweden and Germany is to have a MPP
  • Germany shall not have an MPP with any other country but Sweden
  • Sweden and Germany shall have an NAP
  • Sweden and Germany shall have a trade agreement with a 0% Trading Tax
  • Germany is to pay Sweden a total sum of 500 gold over a period of 4 weeks; 125 gold per week, starting this week.

Icon-Sweden.png Icon-Germany.png Second Sweden-Germany War

The second war against Germany was caused by Germany breaking the contract they had with Sweden. The war broke out July 18, 2008 and ended with Sweden winning the war on July 28, 2008.

Icon-Sweden.png Icon-Germany.png Third Sweden-Germany War

The Third Sweden-Germany War began on May 18, 2009 a declaration of war by Swedish president Kalle Holm on Germany.

During the Swedish presidential elections of May, KalleHolm promised a war with Sweden to get revenge for Operation Burning Spirit. KalleHolm was then voted Swedish president on may 5th 2009. For weeks rumors went around about a war between Sweden and Germany, however these were not taken serious. Then on May the 17th Sweden declared war on Germany and attacked Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania on the 18th of May. Sweden retreated just 20 minutes into the fight.

Later wars

Sweden has been involved in countless wars since these wars, although these are the most well known. Most of them have been against the countries in Sweden's neighbourhood, including countries such as Norway, Denmark, Finland, Germany, UK and Poland. Since the border between Sweden and Lithuania was added in January 2011, they have fought each other in countless wars, together with many different allies. Sweden has also fought against Russia and Canada a couple times. In late 2015, Sweden defended itself against Albania, Paraguay and Bolivia, who had reached the Nordics by airstrikes on Denmark and Norway. Sweden has also launched two airstrikes. The first one on Bulgaria on April 18, 2015, failed. The second one was launched on Ukraine on April 16, 2017, failed after a very even battle.

Citizen-shape.gif Citizen-shape.gif Citizen-shape.gif Migration and New Players

Sweden has been a world leading country within the migration and education sector. Sweden has had several organisations working hard to increase the population of the country and to help new players with tutorials and by answering their questions. The number of new players has drastically been reduced since 2011 and as a result, there has been less and less efforts to help new players. As of 2017, it's mostly up to the Swedish players to take care about their new citizens.
