Sweden's government is a constitutional monarchy with unicameral parliment. It is considered a stable government.

Since the 17th century, when Sweden was a superpower, they haven't participated in any wars. The country's history has not been very rich and full due to their lack of involvement, although they did switch road driving sides in 1967.

In the summer, it is light almost 24-7. In the winter, light barely shines.

    Great glog, Tyler and Ben!
    I thought it was very interesting that Sweden is the 2nd tallest country in the world. It must have big mountains! My country, the UK, also is in a temperate climate, but it receives a good amount sunlight all year long, unlike Sweden. It would be cool to find out more about Sweden's recent history, because Sweden used to be a superpower so I am wondering what happened that made it a less powerful country.
