Fun hub about Sweden, but you have got some of your facts wrong. For instance the currency in Sweden is NOT Euro. And yes, Ikea is inexpensive, however it is still very trendy in Sweden.

Otherwise, I enjoyed reading and found it engaging,

"10. Sweden has more nuclear power plants than any other country in the world"

"1. Tsars of Russia till the last one, Nicholas II, were of Swedish Viking descent"

This is doubtful at least.
