Lumping "Scandinavia" in to one single folder?

I guess that Finland is bunched up with the Scandinavian countries because people dont know the difference between Scandinavia and the Nordic countries.
Regarding the bunching together of the Scandinavian countries its not such a big deal as at least our written language is fairly similar so we all understand eachother (i can read danish just fine for example but i dont understand a word when they speak it).

Which I think is quite fine, it is something done in most games as our languages(Swedish, Danish and Norwegian) are similar enough and we lack the large number of native speakers to require a specific forum for each language. (Compare for instance how active the German or Russian sub-forums in most games are to any or all of the Scandinavian ones). Unfortunately the Finns are often the losers of this "cost-efficient" approach as they usually are lumped in with the Scandinavian nations without much thought.
In summary, it is not a question of ignorance but of numbers.

Also, Greenland looks constipated.

We do, in a way.. we love to tease eachother when we beat the other nation in different sports. Much like the relationship between Finland and Sweden i would say.
