Aland is not a country by itself. Its a part of Finland, an archipelago of 6500 islands and islets located right between Finland and Sweden. Åland is an autonomous and unilingually Swedish region in Finland with its own flag, its own stamps and its own top domain. Hence it automatically becomes a new country number added to the list of countries I've received covers from.
