Norway just happens to have a ton of oil money and a tiny population, whenever they get mentioned as an example for the rest of the world I can't help but laugh.

You're responding to the words "Norway or Sweden". Sweden doesn't have a ton of oil money.

It's still small and affluent, and therefore not a good place to make an x to y comparison.

And Sweden is nowhere near as well off either.
