[quote user=tuoni]Not really.There are three primary ethnic families in Finland (ordered by approximate population): Finnic, North Germanic, and Samic; which can be further divided (roughly) into the following subgroups (again by approximate population):Finnic (inland)Western FinnishEastern Finnish (eastern region around Savonia)Karelian (eastern region bordering the Russian Republic of Karelia)North Germanic (coast)Finland-SwedishÅlandish (Åland)East Norse (Ostrobothnia, Åboland)Samic (Lapland)Northern SamiSkolt Sami (around Lake Inari, across the Russian border)Inari Sami (around Lake Inari)Thus you have at least six proud nations within the state of Finland... although some Finland-Swedes can be quite snobby, the bastards. Furthermore, my Finnic and Samic brethren have fought against and with us throughout history, as skilled and strong warriors, and in Viking times many joined Viking or Varangian parties and travelled as far as the Byzantine Empire and became part of the legendary Varangian guard. We've managed to sodomise both Sweden and Soviet Russia, so if they act a little homo, now you know why ;)Three hearts, three songs, three swords;Three times the pain if you fuck with us![/quote]
I was expecting a yes or no but was blasted with extreme knowledge and now know the full make up of the Finns. Thank u. All hail Tuoni, Queen of T.A.N.
