The Åland Islands (or Åland) are an autonomous province of Finland, populated by the Finnish Swedes. This is a demilitarised and the only monolingually Swedish-speaking region in the country. Local currency is the Euro.
Åland Islands are one of the richest regions both in Finland and in the European Union. Their nominal GDP per capita is comparable with the GDP of the ten richest countries in the world. GDP is mainly formed by the service sector, such as finance, tourism and trade. Due to the special status within Finland and the EU, Åland Islands are subject to tax remissions. The jurisdiction of Åland Islands is often used to officially register gambling enterprises. Nowadays, more than 2600 companies are registered in this area with the population of 29 000 people.
The Åland Islands are a part of Finland and are not blacklisted as an offshore state by the EU, OECD or the Central Bank of the Russian Federation.
