Good quiz! Definitely deserves a nomination. Only one thing needs changing - the clue about the two largest lakes has the word 'lake' missing so I wasn't sure what you were looking for with that question.

Nice little quiz, but wrong about the sami though. They're not indigenous. A minority yes, but not indigenous. Unless of course science is wrong and last glacial period melted the ice from north to south. :-)

Hello! Very good quiz, though the national animal of Sweden is the mighty moose and is called älg in Swedish.
