The former land of Nokia is now an oil country; instead of mobile phones, Finland is exporting petrol and diesel. A financial statement released on 4 February indicates that in 2013 the revenue of Neste Oil was 17.5 billion euros, making the refining company the largest company in Finland. Nokia, in turn, has reported an annual revenue of 13 billion euros while preparing for a life without its handsets.

Regardless, Finland has no reason to apply for a membership in the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), because Neste Oil does not engage in exploration-related activities but merely refines crude oil acquired from the market.
