It seems to me Canada would be a better pick than Sweden to start a world-class Nightclub and Fitness Gym as it has immense potential and can pull in over 10k nightclubbers on a single night. Sweden is a neutral country and has been for quite a while, Canada is not involved in any current wars.

Now my question compare the good as well as the bad of Canada to Sweden. If I went with Sweden I would start businesses in Stockholm, now if I went with Canada where should I go. Not going with Toronto as it is fast-paced, not going with Montreal either as it is a pre-dominantly French-speaking. So which place in Canada is nicest and best overall taking everything into account?
Canada.
1. Speak English.
2. Have relative theres.
3. Same type of food.
4. Same programmes.
5. Better weather.

I do not really need a Nightclub to 'make monkey', I was going to start one to be the new Guinness Book of Records holder for the World's biggest Nightclub.
Then skip Sweden and Canada and go a larger and more exciting country.

If that's your goal, I'm surprised you don't just do it in London! If you want the world's biggest club, it makes sense to build in a mega city with lots of tourism, international elite, and business travelers.

Since you have little experience in the restaurant business, you should start with something more simple. A karaoke bar with 10k seats would open the door to a much larger selection of potential cities. With that kind of a size, you could divide it into various subsections by genre / singers level of drunkeness.

The question is irrelevant, you don't build a business in a country, you build it in a city. Parts of Canada are very wealthy, and others are poorer. The better question to ask is where is my key demographic, do they have disposable income in this city, and how many of them are there?

For the record, using GDP per capita (Purchasing Power Parity) the average Canadian makes a hundred or so dollars more a year than the average Swede, but the difference is essentially irrelevant, Canadians and Swedes are practically equal in purchasing power.

Love both countries but Stockholm is heads and shoulders above most every place I've been in the world. Of course, I was there in the Summer where it's sunny early in the AM and well into the night.
