The Nordics

The Nordics

  • Big Screwed-Up Family: Åland can be a real jerk to his cousin, Finland. As for Scania and Fenno-Swede, the author says, "All the children in SatW are completely fucked."
  • Norse by Norsewest: Mainly averted. The comic shows the countries' stereotypes of each other rather than the Hollywood stereotype of them, and goes out the way to show that each country has their own distinct cultures.
  • Power Trio: Denmark as the Id, Norway the Ego and Sweden as the Superego.

Denmark

 "If he asked... I'd let him do me."

Sweden

 "You need to get your mind out of the gutter, Denmark."

Norway

 "I don't like the zoo. I prefer seeing the animals out in the wild..."

Finland

 Switzerland: Nice shot.

Sister Denmark

 "I found your porn collection!"

  • Bifauxnen: Was mistaken for a cute long-haired guy by France.
  • Bottle Fairy
  • Pettanko: Subverted. She wears baggy shirts that make her look flat.

Faroe Islands

 "It's me! The Faroes! We live together! I pay rent to you!"

Scania

 "I'm not mumbling. That's how I talk..."

  • The Chew Toy
  • Disappeared Dad: Subverted--Denmark is his father, though neither of them knows it. (When Sweden finds out, he tells Scania his father was killed in a car accident so that the boy wouldn't look up to the irresponsible Denmark as a role model.)

Fenno-Swede

  • Cheerful Child: Despite his insane family. Apparently it's because his mother spoils him.
  • The Voiceless: He doesn't have even one line of dialogue in the four five strips where he's appeared.
    • No, scratch that. The only things he's ever said are "Yes!" and "No sir!"
    • He speaks Swedish (shown by the flag in his bubble) which pisses Finland off to no end. This is a reflection of real life Fenno-Swedes.

Svalbard

 "You were being an idiot, that's what happened."

Jan Mayen

 "..."

  • Posthumous Character: Was apparently executed during the Renaissance for having an incestuous relationship with Norway, which is only revealed several strips after his first appearance. Sweden points out that "he looks dead". That's right, Norway introduces his friends to the dead body of his onetime lover/cousin. Which he keeps around to have conversations with. (In real life, Jan Mayen is an inhospitable volcanic island with no real population other than some researchers.)

King Europe

 "Well, if you must ask; I'm an intellectual who speaks more than 20 languages, my food is excellent, my art is deep, I'm a great lover who is sexy without being vulgar, I rule my kingdom with peace, and I ride a mean scooter."

  • The Ace
  • Serious Business: Food, apparently. He ordered Åland to move back in with Finland over the former's strenuous protests so that the latter would have a decent cook around the house.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Toward Norway.

File:Drunkland 484.jpg

Ireland

 "Yeah, you think you can speak on our behalf? Like we don't have our own personality and opinions."

  • The Alcoholic: Natch.
  • Did Not Do the Research: S/he wears the flag of the Republic of Ireland (which is not part of the UK), but complains with Scotland about England wearing the flag of the United Kingdom.
    • Cut Humon some slack, Northern Ireland doesn't have its own flag.
    • Can be forgiven given that all of the characters are stereotypes and a surprising number of people don't know that there's different parts of Ireland, let alone that not all are part of the UK.
      • Also, the St. Patrick's Cross in the Union Jack does represent Ireland.

 "AAARRRGGG!! Random fan in face!!!"

 "Nice shot."

  • Crazy Prepared: A cow is one of the many features of his banking system.

Notes

  1. This stems from the stereotype that all Danes are racist without realizing it.
  2. This plays on the stereotype that Nordics know nothing about South America and North Americans know nothing about Denmark or assume Sweden and Norway are the same.
  3. namely the notorious Jimmy Jump sneaking into the performance of the Spanish entry
