History

Finland is a Nordic country situated in the Fennoscandian region of northern Europe. It borders Sweden on the west, Russia on the east, and Norway on the north, while Estonia lies to its south across the Gulf of Finland. The capital city is Helsinki.

Earth-50

Finland was previously taken over by Finnish superhuman Lemminkäinen Hämäläinen by affecting the people's minds. He made sure that the entire population was experimented on so he could have the country full of super powered beings. This forces Lemminkäinen's brother Jukko to stop him. Because of the feedback caused by Jukko's powers during his final confrontation with his brother, the entire country felt the pain of eight million Finns that had been killed. The results were fatal. Furthermore, Finland is still covered by this feedback which became known as the Masking Wall. After some time, the less than 2,000 surviving Finns emerged from the vast cemetery their country had become, reaching Sweden for medical care and revealing to the world what had happened in Finland.

Over time, the surviving Finns - all of them superhumans of some kind - decided that they would leave the Masking Wall up and turn their country into a haven for refugees all over the world, as long as they were willing to learn the Finnish language and weren't superhumans. This meant the Finns themselves would leave - but keep a watchful eye on Finland, and crush anybody trying something suspicious against their superhuman-free haven.

Since the World's End, Finland became one of the very few unaffected and safest places on Earth which houses large number of surviving refugees thanks to the Masking Wall. However, The High, who has been helping bring refugees to The Wall, found reason to be suspicious of the activities within Finland. Eventually High's suspicion was proven correct as he infiltrated the nation, while depowered, and discover that Kherans have taken control over Finland under a brutal military reign over the human refugees. The reason for the Kherans' presence in Finland is that the generator powering the Masking Wall somehow snagged a quantum tether and opened a rift into the Bleed. And from within the Bleed, the Kheran warship, The Red Blade, was trapped in that space for ten millennia after banishing dimensional alien forces back into the Bleed. And with the rift open, The Red Blade escape and its crew the Knights of Khera planned to conquer and make Earth their new home.
