Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Sweden reserves 10% of seats for balancing seats after the districts are distributed (they are added to the standard seats of the districts in accordance with some formula that gives seats where the party that receives them were strong but got few seats). And that with bigger districts (in terms of seats), Gotland is the only one with just 2.

So when I see one party netting a seat per 0.05% of the total votes and another getting a seat per 0.64% of the total votes, in a system that is nominally proportional... lets say that is not what I am used to.
