Sweden is a Northern European country and member of the European Union. It has a population of about 9 million inhabitants and is therefore a quite small country. Due to the high living standard, i.e. a high GDP per capita, Sweden is an important economic power. They have a very high economic activity rate and a quite low unemployment rate.

The life expectancy in Sweden exceeds 80 years which is a very good value. Part of that good result may be the excellent drinking water and sanitation conditions and the low AIDS rate. However, the GHG emissions per capita are quite high. Sweden has a good education system, with a school life expectancy of 16 years and a very high tertiary education enrolment ratio.
