5. Finnish society in general
Finnish society in general is secular, liberal and pro-intellectual.

American society on the other hand is mostly fundamentalist christian, conservative and therefore anti-intellectual.

If you look at international studies, you see that certain parts of the US score the same as countries like Saudi Arabia or Syria, while other parts score with Sweden and Switzerland. It's not a surprise to guess which parts are like Saudi Arabia and which are like Sweden.
