Soon the upper layer of Finnish society comprised Land, History, Economy and Government 29 From a Finnish reader, Hannu Catholic Bishops and Swedish Sivonen: ‘We are proud to mention that a Finn, Olavi Maununpoika nobility. ’ to settle. The Swedish settlers began to colonise the coastal regions of south-west Finland and along the Gulf of Finland. They brought with them their language which established Swedish as a major language in Finland.

The reparations schedule eventually ended in 1952. For the next two decades after this, Finland began to prosper. The country recognised that it could not compete in the world of mass production along with countries like the USA and Britain. However, it has become among the top ten industrialised nations of the world, specialising in products in which skill, design, originality and flair account for more than bulk, volume and mass production. Finnish scientists help keep Finland at the cutting edge of new technologies in the fields of electronics and timber products.
