Sweden (Swedish: Sverige) is a sparsely populated Nordic country in northern Europe. It shares a border with Norway to the west and Finland to the northeast. It is also connected to Denmark by the Öresund Bridge-Tunnel. Covering 450,295 sq km (173,860 sq mi), Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union in terms of area, but it only has a population of 9.4 million people, giving it a relatively low population density. The capital and biggest city is Stockholm.

Sweden is today a constitutional monarchy with one of the highest Human Development Index. The country comprises 25 provinces with 15% of the country lying north of the Arctic Circle. Due to its location in Northern Europe, Sweden experiences a temperate climate that is moderated by the Gulf Stream, giving Sweden warmer winters than places on similar latitude in Russia, Canada and the United States.
