“Watch out where the huskies go and don't you eat that yellow snow”
“Is there anyone here?”
Norrland is a Swedish colony often called The Siberia of Sweden. The main difference being that all criminals and political dissidents deport themselves from Norrland to the Capital Stockholm instead of the other way.
Norrland begins where the Stockholm local traffic network ends and ends where the Norwegian
civilization begins. Norrland has less than 900 000 inhabitants dispersed over a half dozen counties, each bigger than the rest of Sweden (Skåne and the two islands Öland and Gotland, as well as some other minor islands). The population density are 3 per square kilometer and the medium distance between the pubs in mating season is over 75 kilometer, a fact that is causing a rapid population decrease in this already sparsely populated area.
There is a rich animal life in Norrland, there are almost all probable species of mosquitos (except the malaria mosquito), elks, reindeers, wolves, bears, polar bears, foxes, ermines, rabbits, dogs, cats(also a Swedish pornomagazine),mammoths and the icehockeyplayer "Foppa". The human life is though not especially rich. People along the coast lives like ordinary people, working in the paper industry or in the steel industry. But in the northern part of Norrland, far away from the coast, in Lappland, lives a very mysterious and special kind of people, the Lapps. The Lapps are living in small tents with their reindeers and mammoths and are very poor. But they don´t care about money, for them the most important things in life is to be out in the beautiful nature and go hiking with their reindeers or riding on their mammoths.
Norrland is a good place to visit as the people there cannot say the letter "å" anymore than the common American. This is very funny to the rest of Sweden that often points out that maybe they shouldn't have named a lot of villages things that ends with å. Example: "Umeå" Pronunced: "Ume". "Luleå" Pronunced: "Lule".
Gävle: The functioning province capitol of Norrland, situated in the most southern part of the province, known for its hockey team (Brynäs IF),and for being the place where the singer/artist Thomas Di Leva was born and for its huge car factory. The people in the more northern cities don't really see this as a part of "Norrland" since it's to close to the capital. (A quick stroll away, norrland style.)
Sundsvall: Wood industry city known for it's smell and the following quote: "Anywhere I saw, I saw a saw and a saw and a saw...". Sundsvall is also known as Heroin City as they have more opiate addicted youth than all other cities in the nation has got combined. They usually hang around at a place called "Navet", this is a place where they can sleep with old men and get run over by busses. Several hockey teams to unimportant to mention.
Kramfors Famous for it's historic Bloodbath derby between the Worker Mob Rioters and the Mounted Cavallery Devils. The local yeraly hockey derby is played with sharp bayonettes in order to celerbrate this event.
Örnsköldsvik This is the hometown of the famouse hockeyplayer Peter "Foppa" Forsberg who also owns the Hiab Foco Levy factory, famous for making smooth nuclear weapon launching devises, or Middle East chemical warfare missiles or anything that can cause extinction there and profit here. The city is also called Ö-vik because the people, suffering from inferiority complex in regard to Umeå, are verry lazy and slow. Of course this city has a hockey team, know as Mödom Höckey.
Umeå: The town of Björk. The most common cause of death in the towns University is allergy shock from the pollen in the spring time. Apperently the students from around the country are not used to breathing a mixture of air that (amongst other things) consists of only 7.6% oxygen but 24% pollen. Many hundred years ago a strange old fashioned way of hockey was played here. They used sticks made of birch and clothes made by the birch leaves. Also the "ball" was made of leaves from the birch and it ended up with that the "ball" was mixed up with their clothing and lots of fights between the teams were very common. Nowadays they still have a hockey team called Björklöven (Birchleaves). They are also famous for their football hero Hanna Ljungberg who, to be honest, is more famous for having a hot younger sister - Sofia, than for her football efforts.
Skellefteå: Steel industry city, also known for its gold and silver mines. The third most hated city in all Norrland, as Umeå and Örnsköldsvik would top the list. Their hockey team shorted SAIK, lose all games because easily, they can't find the arenas. Skellefteå is known to its chav residents as Skellhell, and to its local knackers as 'Skelet'.
Piteå: Known as the riviera of Norrland. The main beach is situated right next to one of the countries biggest paper mills. Their hockey team is called MoJo and the hockey star Pite Fivefive comes from here. Smells shit most of the time due to paper mills.
Luleå: The only town in the world whose harbor lies 20 km inland. The town is known for it's many snotty emotypes, you can't go anywhere without seeing the black/pink-types. And, Yeah - the hockey team called "the bears" by citizens of Luleå. Luleå has won the Oscar 15 times cause of their great bondage-films.
Östersund: Big city next to the Great Lake, where the Great Lake monster lives. The monster sometimes leaves the sea and walks on the streets, hunting and eating samll children and dogs. These events are considered nearly as mentionable by the media as the games of the local hockey team. It was last seen 24th of December 2009 stealing a bike.
Kiruna: Mine city in the far north, which was regarded as a mistake already from the beginning. Now 100 years later they decided to move it even 2 km more north, since the vibrations from the hockey arena threatens to erth slide the entire town down into the open mine pit.
Sveg: Is a cit... What? Not a city? We've ran out of them already? But it has two hockey teams.
Hudiksvall: The oldest town in Norrland, and it was the province capitol before Gävle starts to belong to Norrland. There was also here in Hudiksvall that Sweden began to colonize Norrland in 1581 by Johan III, who was a son of the bloody evil Swedish King Gustav Vasa. In modern time, Hudik is known for the famous hockeyplayer Tomas Brolin, Iggesundsbruk (a hockey club factory which has made one of the worlds longest hockey clubs!), and optical hockey fiber.
Most recommended is the "Pajala Sunrise", a drinking glass full of moonshine garnished with a slice of thick Falu Sausage on the brim. Or if you're in a really good mood, you can have the "vargtass". Moonshine and lingondricka. The "Grova Åke" is Swedish snuff (snus) mixed with homemade vodka and some lime. Really good!
