Finland is a nation in Northern Europe that was founded on January 1st, 2020. It is ruled by King J1K.
Finland is located in Northern Europe, in the real life country that gave its namesake. Most of the towns in the nation are situated in real-life Finland, although the nation used to have some towns in Sweden, though these were seized to Sweden due to The Kiruna Treaty. The previous capital Jyväskylä was and still is located in the middle of Finland.
Riftal started planning the nation on the 26th of November 2019. He was at the time the mayor of Visby, of the Kalmar Union (Sweden), but left the town with the intention of starting his own nation in Finland, which would be a state of the Greater Kalmar Union. He made the town of Ozhattan (today Jyväskylä) which joined the Kalmar Union. Riftal started to save up gold to create his nation.
Noveritsch, the mayor of NeoTropolis (later Vehnätila), was also saving gold for a dominion under the Kalmar Union. On December 31, he was suddenly kicked from Kalmar Union and all his properties in the nation were seized, including a massive PVP arena in the center of Nya Asgard. Because of this event, Noveritsch donated all 600 gold he had saved up to Riftal in exchange for getting chancellor role in the new nation. Finland was made the following day, being the first nation of the new decade.
On 23 January 2020, Finland declared independence from the Greater Kalmar Union. On 2 February, Finland was accepted into The Northern Lights Alliance after 2 failed attempts.
The nation of Ruotsi left Greater Finland and joined Finland as a colony on 2 March. On 28 March it left and became the nation of Stockholm.
Finland joined the Central Powers on 18 May. On 25 May, ahead of the nation's first elections, Noveritsch stepped down as chancellor. The elections were held between 28 May and 29 May. MaxFI was elected the Prime Minister, AzFreeze the Minister of Defence, hillosokeri2 the Minister of Infrastructure and 0sku the Minister of Affairs.
On June 14 2020, Riftal decided to step down as the king of Finland. 0sku, the then-Minister of Affairs, was chosen as the new king and the capital was moved to Suur-Helsinki. As Riftal also moved out from the nation, the town of Jyväskylä was transferred to AzFreeze. Sir_Lewanlot was chosen as the new Minister of Affairs.
On the next day, Finland was accepted to the Union of Atlantic States after many failed attempts to join.
Because of 0sku's real-life duties, he was forced to resign as the king of Finland. On July 6, he gave the nation to back to Riftal, who acted as the earl, with the role of king in game. On July 22, Riftal left the nation and transferred the role to Noveritsch, who in turn gave the leadership to J1K on the same day, transferring the capital to Helsinki. 0sku later abolished the position of earl, making J1K officially the king of Finland.
On 13 March, Japan and Finland entered a Defensive alliance, with the hope of furthering relations and giving each other a strong alliance in each respective continent. This friendship started with the introduction between KawadaJP, and Riftal. They were friends previously when Riftal was still part of the Kalmar Union (Sweden). This friendship between Japan and Finland reignited when Goddess_Sairene and Riftal met through the Map Maker Union.
Finland and Sweden have always had some sort of relationship, seeing as Finland was birthed out of Sweden originally. Majority of the time, Sweden and Finland did not get along for personal drama between: Riftal, Noveritsch, LiterallyADonut and NordicFenris. However through the blessings of some deity, they found common ground and established Jürgen's Alliance, named after the event of Riftal and LiterallyADonut migrating Riftal's turtle from Nya Asgard to Jyväskylä. Once that was set in stone, they forged a border agreement called The Kiruna Treaty, which was later violated by Finland due to Sweden's inactivity.
The relations of Finland and Terra Mariana are hindered by the land claims of eke223's town Reval. Reval has claimed the area of Porkkala from Southern Finland. The former mayor of the town, emmettaaron, built a bridge to Finland, along which eke later claimed and gradually continued to Finland in late 2019. The claims were not well received by the people of Finland, as the area was quite large and had nothing built in it except the bridge and some dug up parts of a mountain. Tensions really started to take place as the town of Suur-Helsinki was established in April 2020. Eke's areas greatly limited the expansion of the town, although Reval made some border agreements with Suur-Helsinki and Tammisaari. Only after this point, eke has started construction on this area, building a wall and doing some larger terraforming. On 26 May, as eke was starting to build the wall, some residents of Suur-Helsinki started staring at him. This seemed to worry eke and the legendary Great Staring Battle began. More people from both Finland and Terra Mariana joined and in the end, a total of 10 people were in the battle. Most people in Finland don't accept eke's claim, although some think it's rightful as eke didn't have any more land to claim in Estonia.
Around early May, the former king of Terra Mariana, TommyJ2 became the mayor of Ahvaland, a town located in the Åland Islands. The town was officially neutral, but clearly associated with Terra Mariana, as another former king, Egga_ was frequently seen visiting the town and had embassies there. On May 22, Ahvaland joined Terra Mariana and claimed the town of Turku. This along with the Reval situation even caused theories that Terra Mariana might be planning a war against Finland. However, the king of the nation, nicosecci, kicked the town out in order to not make relations with Finland worse. Egga and Tommy were not happy about this and made a case against nicosecci in the national court on May 23, claiming that kicking the town forcefully violated the constitution. Egga and Tommy ended up winning the case, but as the Royal Councillors didn't find nicosecci guilty, he didn't end up getting a proper punishment, as Egga would have hoped. On May 25, he made a statement saying that Justice and God had died under Terra Mariana's system and that he would be leaving the nation. Egga's town of Arensburg (the former long-time capital of the nation) as well as Ahvaland joined Finland on the same day.
