5 Facts You Might Not Know
Sweden has a constitutional monarchy like several other countries in Europe. This means that the country has a monarch who acts as a figurehead but does not actually have power in decision making. A democratic parliament, which is led by a prime minister, actually runs the country. The current monarchs are members of the house of Bernadotte.
The inhabitants of Sweden are mainly Swedish with minority communities of Finns, Yugoslavs, Danes, Norwegians, Greeks, Turks and Samis. The Sami people are a nomadic people who live in the north of Sweden, often raising reindeer and living off the land.
Sweden's main religion is Lutheran and around 87% of its population are members. Other religions in the country include Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Jewish, Buddhist and Muslim.
Sweden does have its own military, which has historically been a major power in Europe but, for almost 200 years, has not been involved in a conflict. During both world wars, while Europe was fighting, Sweden maintained an armed neutrality ready to defend itself but unwilling to choose a side.
Untouched by the wars of the 20th century, Sweden has been able to develop an economy and society which is the envy of Europe. The successful economy and a well established welfare system mean that there is barely any poverty in the country. Sweden's economy is strongly based on agriculture, the manufacturing of precision equipment, lumber and motor vehicles.

The capital of Sweden is Stockholm. The currency of Sweden is the Swedish Krona(SEK) Flag of Sweden
