        Interesting video that gives you a lot of numbers, statistics and assumptions if the Scandinavian countries were united.

          The border between Norway and Russia has been re-defined and re-measured for the first time since 1947. The length has grown by abt. 2 km. to 197.7 km.:

          PS> No border markers were moved, but the rivers and streams demarcate most of the border has changed position over time.

              Doing stunts is nothing especially Norwegian, nor is ski jumping. (Even Brits do both at times)
              But ski jumping stark naked is not an everyday thing, even in Norway:

                Would most likely be terrifyingly painful to snag vital "junk" during such a stunt.

                  China has a population of measly 1,418 million according to UN estimate:
                  The current population of China is 1,418,297,210 as of Saturday, February 23, 2019, based on the latest United Nations estimates.

                    HAHAHAHAHA..... someone's got the numbering all messed up! What if Norway actually had a population like that? Would it even be possible to so many people within our borders?
