World War II
The nation had great geographical and therefore tactical advantages with a long land border next to Nazi-occupied Norway and a sizeable coastline towards the Baltic Sea. Still, they managed to stay neutral in World War II and avoid invasion by Nazi Germany. For example, by providing iron ore for the German weapons manufacturing and allowing German troops to pass between Germany and Norway on Swedish railroads. This was kept secret at the time and the Swedish 'neutrality' is still a highly debated and controversial issue.
