Aph Nordic Facts

Finland - Tino/Timo Väinämöinen

- Finland cuts Iceland’s hair.
- Finland sometimes accidentally calls Sweden ‘Su-san’ when talking to others, being so used to the nickname
- When Finland found America, he told Sweden it would be nice to have a kid following them everywhere. Sweden replied with “I’ll do my best”. Later on Sweden bought Sealand. A coincidence?
- Finland is in a fight with England in terms of taste. (Not sure what this means.)
- Finland owns an electric guitar

- It is said that out of the Nordic nations, Finland has suffered the most hardships. (As a Finn, I will say that even though I don’t know other Nordic countries’ history very well, I always thought Finland got it easy compared to many countries.)
- Finland is the shortest one out of the Nordics, standing 170 cm, hat included.
- (Not canon, but I’m 100% sure Finland has, or should have, his right arm to be prosthetic due to historic events. The 'Maiden of Finland’ lost it’s right arm - an area now under Russia’s rule.)
