Actually, there is no universal definition for what Scandinavia is, and it has historically been used to describe all of the following combinations:

SE NO DN
SE NO FI
SE NO DN IS
SE NO DN FI
SE NO DN FI IS

(Official country codes used)

Only very recently has there been an educational shift within Scandinavian and Nordic countries to portray Scandinavia as Sweden, Norway, and Denmark exclusively, and Nordic countries as the above alongside Finland and Iceland. With different terms being adopted to describe the former Swedish Empire nations, such as ‘Fennoscandia’. But the use still varies among scholars and the public, depending on the topic and era discussed, and when the person using the term was educated. As such it is very similar to historic usage of the term ‘Australia’ in description of certain interpretations of what you would now be urged to call Oceania as a continent. With most of the world using the term as it has been historically, often along with even new publications of Encyclopedias, but with a very strong insistence on one particular use being utterly and undeniably wrong based on what a particular group has been thought in a newly revised primary education. Truth is that ‘Australia’ is still the appropriate and most widely used term for certain discussions of continents, and ‘Scandinavia’ is the most term to describe Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland in terms of certain aspects of their shared history. Yes, I could have said Fennoscandia, but then I would have had to explain what Fennoscandia meant when everyone understood ‘Scandinavia’ just fine.

**Ninja Edit:** There are also inclusions of Åland, which is often considered part of Sweden or Finland depending on where you’re from, and the Faroe islands. Honestly, it all just gets more complicated the more you want to go into depth about it.
