Well firstly they say that the actual 'place of Finland' is just Eastern Sweden. Helsinki is in Eastern Sweden and when people fly there it's not like they would notice.

World maps are altered as it's a U.N conspiracy to keep people believing in Finland. And the idea that an entire country is made up seems so bizarre that nobody would ever believe it, making it easy to do.

Finland's main company, Nokia, is apparently owned by the Japanese and they're a main player in this.

Now as for 'why' people would want to invent Finland as a country that's a bit more in depth and there's a few reasons as to why Sweden and Russia go along with it but it's mostly to do with Japanese fishing rights.

You see the Japanese love their sushi but tight fishing regulations and public outcry mean they can't fish as much as they want. So after the Cold War they agreed with Russia to create a 'landmass' called Finland where they could fish. After all, if people thought there was a country there nobody would expect the Japanese to be harpooning whales would they?

The fish is then transported through Russia where a small percentage of the food is given to the population, (they were of course starving at the time of Finland being invented), and then is shipped to Japan under the disguise of 'Nokia' products. Japan is apparently one of the worlds largest importers of Nokia products despite the fact that 'nobody there owns a Nokia phone' apparently.

The crux of all this however, and my favourite part, is the homage that the Japanese gave to this entire conspiracy theory.

What do fish have? Fins. Therefore they named their imaginary country Finland.

Let's be completely honest, you only say that because you TRUST the mapmaker to be correct, what if mapmakers lied to you? How could you trust a map if they did lie?

Believe it or not, every map made has fake things put into it, they do this to keep other mapmakers from copying their maps, so every map out there has errors on it.

I never said the mapmaker is always right and geography isn't all about cartography. You still need to look at this country from a political, economical or cultural point of view.

It must be nice to be the guy who made this claim. I mean, don't we all dream of being able to live in a fictitious world of our own design? I'm actually quite jealous.

Very true. As all Americans know Wyoming doesn't actually exist it was just put in to make the map look more consistent.
