Finland will become mostly unknown and peaceful in the world, and will become mainly for people to sit in saunas and listen to heavy metal music until about 2014. Watching association football, ice hockey and basketball will also become weekend pastimes for people who don't have the time and/or the money to attend the saunas every week.
People who listen to world beat music in Finland would be beaten up by heavy metal-supporting gangs and tossed into a nearby body of water.
In the year 2014, Finland will be involved with the Russian Civil War while the Russians want to take claim of certain countries in the Scandinavian part of Europe. During that era, the United States of Europe would form. The United States of Europe stretched as far west as Portugal and as far east as the Germany-Poland border. A coup involving Serbian nationalists and reformists in the Serbian government caused Serbia to join the United States of Europe in 2042. Greece opted to remain neutral along with Turkey while remaining an "associate member" of the United States of Europe until December 2057.
Smoking indoors will become legal again, people will be able to use chemicals on the land that they legally own, people will still slaughter animals for food while Canadamerica uses in vitro meat, and people will be permitted to talk on their cellphones while driving. After about three years of conflict, Finland will surrender and become a more prosperous nation than Canadamerica (most Canadamericans will simply respond that the people of Finland are backwards). The Russian Federation will cease to exist and will become a new Soviet Union. While the mainstream media will refer to it as the Eurasian Union, the alternate media will make references to a "Second Soviet Union" under the rule of a "Czar Vladimir Putin."
While the new Canadamerican Republic creates new social programs and diminishing freedom, Finland will become one of the most free countries in the world and it becomes a major place for corporations and business.
