Åland Islands autonomous, demilitarized, monolingually Swedish-speaking administrative province, region and historical province of the Republic of Finland.[1] The Åland Islands form an archipelago in the Baltic Sea at the entrance to the Gulf of Bothnia. The Åland Islands are the smallest province of Finland. Due to the Åland Islands' autonomous status, the powers exercised at the provincial level by representatives of the central state administration in the rest of Finland are largely exercised by the Government of the Åland Islands.
