They shared a common enemy and had no competing interests, but Russia was looking to get the US to become a formal ally, while the US was reluctant to go against European states at the time so the plans withered on the vine.

This is like a microcosm of the Swedish Empire's achievements in so many ways.

Also,
>The map drawn by the Dutchman Roggevin is the oldest and shows the country surrounding Philadelphia. At the place where this city is situated and exactly on the spot where the Sesquicentennial Exposition is being held today, the map shows just one name-Sauna.

>Many have tried to explain the meaning of this word. The Finn, Peter Kock, had settled on the land marked Sauna. The first house which a Finn builds very near the water is always a Sauna (bath-house). When Roggevin came to the place, he no doubt found Peter Kock's Sauna there-which explains the name.

Named Amalienborg (Charlotte Amalie) in honor of the wife of Danish King Christian V, the Danish influence is strong. The heritage is predominant in several ways in Charlotte Amalie today. The Danes left castles, cemeteries, churches, forts, town homes, sugar mills and plantation houses that are still standing. Many geographical names have been kept in Danish and many locals have Danish names.[25] The most widely spoken language, Virgin Islands Creole, has many words and expressions left from the Danish language. For instance, Danish words like "skål" (toast), "berg" (mountain) and "frikadeller" (meatballs) are commonly used.[26] Much of the historic colonial architecture is still standing and words like "street" are more commonly referred to by the Danish translation "gade", pronounced "gah-dah".

Charlotte Amalie has the largest collection of colonial buildings in the Caribbean.[20] Most of the buildings are classic Caribbean adaptions of English Georgian architecture built by the Danes, dating to the 1830s.

Not ours, they were renamed "overseas territories". British territories are not part of the UK, and they're also not independent. Although they're independent to the extent that they control everything except foreign policy and defence.

Still, foreign policy and defence are important.

Read an interesting article about the nya sverige colony and interaction between the finns and american indians sent to colonise it along with swedish colonists.

http://www.tiede.fi/artikkeli/tilaajille/suomalaiset_kavivat_intiaanista

>Swedish interest in settling the wilderness was short-lived. Finns specialized in slash and burn cultivation were better suited for this purpose. In contrast to the central Europeans and Swedish, many of whom were accustomed to cities and idyllic countryside, Finns were more at home in the forests
>This caused interest in the native Delaware. From their perspective forest finns differed radically from other Europeans and Finns seemed very similar to them. Like the Indians Finns also hunted, fished and gathered berries. They built similar dwellings and cleared farmland using slash and burn technique.
>The Finns also took to learn the native people. They embraced the local hunting skills, and began to use their exotic food sources, such as skunks, raccoon and opossum.
>External appearances also united. The Finns wore moccasins and dressed in deer leather and fur, which the Indians also typically made clothes out of.
>The affinity for forest surroundings offered common ground for interaction. The Finns traded cattle, drink wine, fabrics, firearms, furs and medicinal plants with the Delaware .
>Some even Finns learned to speak Delaware, and began to act as interpreters. They were required when performing marriages for example. Also, some Finns were known to marry the past with the state of Delaware.

What France does, IIRC, is that any human inhabitable/inhabited French territory is considered PART of France itself. They have representation in your Parliament, follow the same laws and have the same rights as the Métropole. There's a few which aren't inhabited, they are treated different.

For Britain it's a little more complicated. The people living there are not necessarily British citizens, the territories can have their own passports. I'm not sure if they have the same rights as UK citizens. They have no representation in the House of Commons, instead they have some democratic institution on the territory itself and self-government - except for foreign affairs/defence. That is decided in London.

They're not called colonies but at the same time they're not independent nor are they part of the UK
