    This is a tough one. Both have made significant world-historical contributions.

    Tavastians have Raimo "Raipe" Helminen and Eppu Normaali. Savonia has Kekkonen and Juice. I cannot decide.

    Tavastehus / Hämeenlinna, hands down!

    Hämeenlinna rules, Savonlinna sucks.

    (Förresten är Nyslott nästan asiatisk.)

    Well, we Tavastians have Nokia, a company that gave the world the "Nokia youth counselor/social worker".

    I believe the same company also produced some other products of lesser importance in more recent decades.

    That may be true, but we Savonians have Spede. Therefore, we win automatically, no matter who the opponent is.

    Spede is indeed a trump card for the Savonians.

    And lets not forget: Savonians were used to colonize various parts of the Swedish realm, including Delaware in America. Savonians and Karelians gave Americans the log cabin.

    Where's the Paavo Väyrynen option?




    How come Lapland isn't on that list, hmm?

    Väyrys-Pave is not on the list, because what's the point of starting polls with obvious outcomes?

    There are eldritch tales, told by old fish-wives, of arcane chanting heard at night from Paavo's campaign headquarters, and of eerie, unearthly vapours emanating from the basement.

    You mean... that whole American thing might have been wiped out otherwise by a fierce winter...




    Perhaps a mod can change my vote to Tavastian.
