Finland is a western parliamentary democracy with a president as the head of state and with a multi-party political system. The President is elected by the people for a six-year term. The unicameral parliament of 200 members is elected for four years at a time by and from citizens over 18 years of age. The Government is appointed by the President and most enjoy the confidence of Parliament.

Finland works in close relationship with her Scandinavian neighbors Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Iceland. The political system is similar to that of the other Scandinavian countries in its institutional arrangements. There is no passport requirements for citizens of the five Nordic countries travelling within Scandinavia. Finland was the second country in the world to grant women the right to vote, and was one of the first countries to introduce the eight-hour working day. As elsewhere in Scandinavia, there is free medical care and free education. Finland has two state churches; the Evangelical-Lutheran Church (87.6%) and the Orthodox Church (1.1%).
