Last update February 27, 2014


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. In fact, more and more newspapers have decided to switch to English to increase their group of readers.

Until August 2011, Sweden was in a union with Denmark called the Homonavian Union (Homonavia). It's now a part of the Asgard alliance.

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 [1]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 have had as low as 1500 citizens, currently weighing in at ~1100 (but decreasing again) [2].

Graveyard

Main article: Graveyard of Sweden

As Sweden is an old nation and was once one of the largest in The New World. It's only natural that some of the oldest citizens have died, and due to this it now exists a small graveyard with honorary mentions of players who have been greatly missed by others.

Icon achievement congressman on.gif Politics

In the beginning...

November 2007

The first Swedish Party ever 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 today is inactive.

December 2007

At the same date a new party saw the light of day namely Militantsocialistiska Arbetarpartiet which still today is a party to recognize with almost 10% of the votes in the latest election. MSAP is the third largest party in Sweden, with the current leader The Herminator.

Soon after on December 2:nd Högerpartiet (later Piratpartiet) was formed taking the name from a small party in real life Sweden, today the party is Sweden's third largest party in congress with the leader Kapus at the helm.

Only a few days before Christmas, Sweden got a third party which would take the country by surprise. On December 20 the Flashback Sweden 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 which in January took place as Sweden's second president in an unprecedented share of the peoples votes.

Right before the end of the year the party Det Nya Sverige was formed and it is today Sweden's fourth largest party. TemplarPaladin became the first party president.

Several smaller parties was also formed in December such as: AnarkoKapitalistisk Front, Grogg, Ultraliberal Front, Sverige i Första Ledet, Akt!va and Ny Framtid.

January 2008

Since Flashback Sweden won the presidential election in Sweden, not many parties have been formed, most of the old ones have changed their names.

January 2009

FBS still has the majority of the congress seats and have done so since the first of january 2008.

But some things have happened over the latest year.

Democrats of New Sweden and LGS have joined forces.
Arbetarepartiet MSAP have lost a huge amount of important politicians and also DNS.
FBS keeps going strong even if they to have lost some politicians, the difference is that they have gained new, not run on old blood.

February 2009' In February a new party were formed in Sweden: FRONT. FRONT was formed by icehacker from the old party Purjolök Ops. Front won 33.33% of the congress election and was 2 votes from winning the president elections from FBS.

September 2009
MSAP is now defunct and has been transformed into the new party Folket

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.
