2. How much is the population of Finland?
3. How many presidents has Finland had? (including current)
4. In what team sport has Finland won more European Championships than any other country? (besides silly sports invented in Finland)
5. Alaska and an area in north tip of Delaware, southeast Pennsylvania and west tip of New Jersey (along Delaware River); what connection do these two places of USA have to Finland?
6. How many times has Finland won ice hockey world championship?
7. What Finnish band consists of Ville Valo, Mige, Linde, Burton and Kosmo (replacing Gas Lipstick from the longest/best known line-up)?

16. Of what sport developed in America have Finns come up with an altered version played (almost) only here?
17. Who is the only Finnish director with notable Hollywood career? (hint: he has 5 nominations of Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Director)
