Stereotypes of Sweden:
1. It's cold here - partly true, not so much in the southern parts and of course the Gulf stream makes the country livable. No icebears of course, midnight sun (and 24h nights) in the northernmost parts.
2. All people are blond - true if you compare us to the rest of the world, but really blond people seem to be more common in Denmark
3. Swedish women are goodlooking and sluts - goodlooking very true, sluts not.
4. We are a socialist country - not true if you think socialist countries have one party systems, which we never had, democracy all the way. "The middle way" is a pretty famous, if a bit outdated system. We're turning more and more European thanks to EU entry and globalization, our present government is liberal ala US Democrats.
5. We have the highest suicide rate in the world - not true.
6. We make crappy music - well, depends on taste, but we are the third largest music exporting country after USA and UK, pretty good for a small country with 9 million people.
7. We are quiet and well-mannered and afraid of conflicts, with feelings bottled up - true.
8. We export a lot of porn - not true AFAIK
. Reputation probably comes from a couple of "sexually explicit" movies in the fifties. Well they were with the standards of those days, they contained some nudity, naked breasts and such (ooh...).
9. We have crappy food - true to a certain extent, of course if you compare with Mediterranean countries it's bad, but no worse than German food and not as bad as stereotypical English food (intestines that is).
10. We drink Absolut - partly true but most people are middleclass and hence drink wine or beer, strong liqour is only for midsummer's eve, Easter and Christmas.
11. We use "Snus" (tobacco under the upper lip) - true, at least less than 20% of adults smoke.
I have found that a few stereotypes of Russian people are partly true, at least the following:
They have a strange sense of humour.
They drink a lot of vodka and loudly sing melancholic folk songs when they get drunk.
All their service workers are grumpy.
Their cars are crap.
