[[Finland]] next, this is the harder one. Sweden has cores in Finland if they did not chose the [[abandon Finland]] decision. [[abandon Finland]] will make Sweden lose its cores in exchange for 10 prestige.
Easy Option(a little bit cheaty) ==== The easiest option is to save your game. And on the country select screen load it and select Russia. Then as Russia, save and do the same again but play as Sweden (it may take a few readthroughs to understand), the same concept applies to easy wars declare war and propose peace. If you invade straight away there is no resistance but you can also draw them into your Sphere of Influence. ==== Hard Option ====
The harder option is to Declare a war of unification on [[Russia]] to acquire the northern [[Finland]] states. There are about 27,000 Soldiers scattered through far western Russia and Finland as well as 36,000 in St.Petersburg. Another 37,000 are stationed next to Austria. This is a very hard war as Sweden has a tiny population and thus a tiny army. Build forts and then wait until Russia is at war for this. Repeat for Finland's other states.
The extremely lucky option ====
If one is lucky a Finnish national revolution will succeed. One need to be extremely lucky for this to happen and one can do nothing to provoke it. The [[Russia]]n army will put the revolution to the ground if they are not occupied elsewhere. If it should happen, One can then take the swedish cores right after you have enjoyed the rare sight of an independent [[Finland]].
The crisis option ====In [[HOD]] anyone else than [[Great Powers]] can start a [[crisis]] by using the increase tension national focus. This can be used on [[Russia]]'s provinces to start a [[crisis]]. If the 7 other will help Sweden, Russia can be forced to give up [[Finland]].
[[Britain]], [[Prussia]] and [[Austria]] will likely back Sweden up, if [[Russia]] isn't too powerful.
