Sweden was even an Empire. By the treaties of Brömsebro, 1645, and Roskilde (1658), Sweden acquired important provinces of Denmark and Norway. Following the Peace of Westphalia (1648), Sweden ruled Ingria, in which Saint Petersburg later would be founded, Estonia, Livonia, and areas of northern Germany (Duchy of Bremen, Principality of Verden, Wismar and Swedish Pomerania).
New Sweden was a small colony along the Delaware River in North America (near New Jersey) from 1638 to 1655. It had about 600 settlers and was absorbed by the Dutch colony of New Netherland.
Today Sweden is a beautiful country to visit.
