Without a Royal Family living in the country it is rather difficult to have a monarchist movement.

Kingdom of Finland

So other than the ridiculed mention of a monarchy in Finland back in June 2014, how are things in Finland, is everybody against turning giving the supposed best country on Earth a crown or would they rather continue to have the republic no matter what happens with comedians supporting the republicans every step of the way?

No, Finland will continue as a republic, as has been written previously, without a Royal Family in the country, it's hard to think of a Monarchy established now. Finns are happy with their country and with their independence plus republic. I think they look upon the situation as, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Sure the Finns are interested in the Nordic Monarchies, but it doesn't necessarily mean they want one of their own, like the US, although a Monarchy in the US doesn't sound too bad right now.

What monarchist movement do you expect to be in Finland? Finland has never had a monarchy. There is no monarchy to restore. Unless you are suggesting Finland give up its independence and revert back to Sweden. The closest thing Finland has had to its own monarchy was a Grand principality but its ruler was the emperor of Russia. Its never had its own unique monarchy. And its last Grand Duke was Nicholas II so there is no living pretender.

Right before it became a republic there was a suggestion to make the great-grandfather of the current Landgrave of Hesse to be king of Finland. He turned it down though, and a republic was instead formed. I don't think the Hesses would have any chance in making any claim.

I'm not suggesting Finland give up it's independence at all really, I'm just curious about how the monarchist movements are going on in Brazil, North Africa, and the European republics that's all.

Perhaps you need to brush up then. Because suggesting Finland would want to restore a monarchy, is in fact suggesting it give up its independence. Finland has never had its own monarchy. To restore a monarchy would be to put Carl Gustav on the throne. As an independent country, Finland has always been a republic.

My apologies, I just asked about Finland because of the whole brief attempt at a debate in June 2014 and thought I'd ask about a follow up. I'm not suggesting restoration, or putting a Hesse on the throne, I'm just curious about the opinion of the Finnish people.

Finland has a unique position in Europe as one of the only countries that has never had its own royal family. Technically, however, Finland did have a king for just two months, which is possibly the shortest monarchy to have ever existed. This is the bizarre and fascinating story of the King of Finland who never was.

Finland had a monarchial constitution for about a year.
