The Republic of Svaland is rich and modern Scandinavian country. From the Vendel period, to the world wars, to modern day the Svalandic people have existed. Svaland is an ancient, old state like most European countries. While a republic in name, the Svalandic monarchy is still present as figureheads. The country is dense pine forest and mountains further inland, with fertile plains along the coasts. The most common language is Swedish, with Norwegian commonly spoken on the northern island, and Icelandic and English across the many western islands. The nation historically was 3 separate kingdoms, later 2, than finally unified in 1750. Today it stands as a beacon of social progress, a contemporary Scandinavian paradise.

The Armed Forces of Svaland are relatively small, but reasonable in relations to its size and its neighbors. The Svalandic Army emphasizes capability, versatility, and individual initiative. As a member of NATO, and of the EU, the Svalandic military is intended to act as a single piece of a larger coalition force, able to be placed anywhere. and not be limited by capability.

I think the color scheme is good, the black/dark blue helps to make it stand out from most modern armies.
