Finland has produced some of the most important architects and designers. It is also the first country in Europe in which women could vote and is today an extremely egalitarian, tolerant, and progressive society. It is also an extremely honest society, an even rigid probity.

The Finnish education system consistently ranks as one of the best in Europe and the world, and in many surveys is ranked the very best. Finland is known for inventing the sauna and perhaps (though disputed) skiing. In sports, Finland is nonetheless known for its skiers. Finland is known for high technology companies such as Nokia as well as for ship building, lumber, and paper manufacturing.


Finland is also known for fending off the Soviet Red Army during World War II despite the fact that Finland was vastly outnumbered; as a result, unlike most other countries bordering the Soviet Union, Finland remained both independent and outside the Warsaw Pact. Finland is also the only country that repaid in full the United States the loans it received under the Marshal Plan. Finland is famous internationally for its heavy metal and hard rock, one the one hand, and for classical musicians and composers on the other. See link below.
