Finland was a small town in the middle of a forest with quite a few residents at its peak. It was purchased by Newport on Jan 9, 2022.


One day, Brostrod became bored of the server and set out to build a town in a forest. For no particular reason other than liking the country, he named it Finland. He gathered a small group of players to travel with, and they went to what would become Finland. The first house in Finland was built by jriver_15. Brostrod also built a small dock on the river next to central Finland.

After this, Finland expanded rapidly, with many other notable future contributors joining around this time, such as runarlogi and NightSteak9. Nightsteak expanded Finland to the west, founding Finland's housing district.

There was a large dispute regarding a nearby mountain which ended up having snakyman and KingServal banned (and quickly unbanned). The duo built a cobblestone sign saying "FUCK YOU" and a boxy phallic structure, similar to what the two did in Crown's Landing ( - see more: War of Finland). This stemmed from Finland's use of Newport's nether highways, which bothered their staff.

Finland collapsed sometime during March of 2021, mostly due to poor leadership and lack of any reliable access to the town. Members left one by one, leaving only ruins behind. In August of 2021, NightSteak9's Odds and Ends Museum left Finland in favor of Newport, taking away the last attraction and citizens Finland had to offer.

New Ownership Brostrod, now known as Webchat427, sold Finland's Tier 1 position of government to jriver_15 for 0 diamonds. Webchat claims he was looking to distance himself from Finland and the past it leaves behind. As of 2023, Webchat427 is now marked as 'kill on site' in Finland & its surrounding regions.

New Ownership (again)

In January 2023, things started to pick up (a little) in Finland. NightSteak9 began to renovate his original museum, turning it into a second campus for the Newport Museum. snakyman put together a coalition of people who lived in the area willing to contribute funding to buy Finland for Newport. It was purchased from jriver_15 for 3 stacks and 42 diamond blocks, access to Snaketown's iron farm, 2 floors of Newport's Ellipse tower, and 20 notch apples. Totally overpriced but it was the only way for everyone to get what they wanted. It joined the Newport Empire and is a directly controlled territory of the City of Newport, therefore making its (40-ish) residents all Newport residents. Finland is currently undergoing restoration efforts by ChivalricCode and NightSteak9.

Districts of Finland

The Central District: The Central District is the core of Finland, hosting multiple player built houses and Finland government buildings. This area is built around the place where Finland was first founded, and where jriver_15 built the first house.

The Housing District: A district with many small houses in the westward plains of Finland. Some things in the district include Brostrod's mansion and the original home of the kidnapped villagers.

KawaiiLogi District: Small district with KawaiiCorner06 and runarlogi's houses. Also has the Catgirl Cafe.

Scope of Finland

The scope of Finland and its builds are limited so as to remove ambiguity about what Operators of Finland have perms to, where citizens should build, and any unofficial claims of expansion. The scope can expand, however, with the introduction of new lines that enclose an area to expand to, usually after roads or other builds have been built in that area first. The operator expanding must do so rationally and, most importantly, get auxiliary concession of perms from the owners for any builds within the proposed extension, even if such owners have already signed a general concession. Extension Lines should be named and marked by signs incrementally with the date of establishment and establisher documented. The following are the lines that, together, contain the entirety of the Scope of Finland:

  • Eclyptic Line: established December 3rd, 2020 by jriver_15. Marked by unbroken torch lines and cobble walls.
  • Democratic Line: established December 26th, 2020 by jriver_15. Marked by intermittent cobble wall posts and blocks.
  • Line of Labour: established January 1st, 2021 by 1235_John. Marked by unbroken line of cobble blocks.
  • Brick Line: established January 5th, 2021 by jriver_15. Marked by torch line and brick blocks.

Cigar Sheep

One day, runarlogi found a gray sheep. Using a nametag, he renamed it to "legendary cigar sheep". The sheep ended up becoming Finland's one and only religion, and the source of many jokes.

On the 20th of April 2021, snakyman, nikta_, DanThePilot02, and r9q went on an expedition spearheaded by Drdrs to end cigar sheep's life once and for all. This was a success, with nikta_ shearing the sheep and snakyman putting them down. The remaining charred fragments of cigar sheep were split amongst them all, excluding r9q because they didn't want any. These fragments were sold off to a mysterious green trader by the name of EastDakota, except for snaky's fragments. It is said that if the fragments are not combined and laid to rest, cigar sheep's ghost will haunt Finland forever. (snakyman would like it to be known that he found cigar sheep's wool buried in newport but will not be selling it to east)


The players who operate Finland do so through Tiers that are stated and endowed by the Owners of Finland Board next to the portal. This Board is the source of this section. The decisions (eg. the decision to give someone else perms or to build or to demolish), policy, and perms of a Tier 1 OP overrule and overpower those of of a lower Tier. This fact is translated down for all successive levels, that is Tier 2 overrules T3 and up, Tier 3 overrules T4 and up, etc. Tiers 1-5 have full perms to operate within the scope of Finland, that is, add new citizens (after getting their signed concession), change any blocks, give others perms to change blocks etc. The unused Tier 6 is for players that are awarded specific perms to areas (listed by signs) by a higher Tier. If two players on the same Tier ever disagree with each other, a higher Tier will make a ruling. The list of owners/operators under the Newport administration are as follows:



Before a player can become a citizen of Finland, an OP must have them sign a book filled with the following text:

By signing this book, I agree to all current and future terms set by the Ownership of Finland. I also concede full and ultimate perms to my builds within Finland (scope of Finland defined by Ownership) to the ownership of Finland. Signed <insert current date here>

After a player has signed a concession and it has been properly stored, the OP must put their name on the citizenship board and oversee the new citizen as they find an area for their house. Please label your house as yours with a sign once you start building.


The following players have been registered as citizens of Finland and have perms to their respective houses as well as the wool over the chests in the storage room. Unless otherwise stated, all citizens have signed a Concession of Ownership to their builds of Finland to Ownership.

(*) Has signed Concession, but is also an Owner
(**) Relationship based on build agreement

Finland General Assembly

The Finland General Assembly (FGA) is a deliberative group made up of all citizens and owners with equal voting power that makes motions that govern Finland. Through parliamentary procedures, members may make statements, introduce motions, second motions, oppose motions, and vote on motions. Once a motion has made it through the procedure, it is passed into preferential Tier 3 force. The source of this authority comes from the bestowment of Tier 3 power to the FGA by jriver_15, the Tier 1 operator. The structure of the FGA is based off of that of the PopBob Sex Dupe Association. Meetings take place in the Finland Discord, but there is also an ingame meeting place in Finland near the portal. For more information, see the main page.

As of 2022, the FGA has been dissolved indefinitely due to the collapse of the Finnish government.
