Swedish term or phrase: "All Sweden will survive..."
Hi SV->EN Prozians :-)
I am actually translating a doc from Japanese to English and having trouble locating the "official" English for the above phrase ("All Sweden will survive" is just the direct translation from the Japanese).
To paraphrase the doc, 'revitalization movements in Sweden’s rural districts have been spreading dramatically since the late 1980’s, and there have been thousands of local development groups that have worked/are working to develop these rural districts, under the slogan "All Sweden will survive."'

Is anybody familiar with this "slogan?" Would you be able to direct me to the 'official' English for this catchphrase, if any?
Many thanks in advance for any assistance.

All (of) Sweden shall live
Explanation:
Naturally, the origin of this slogan is Swedish.

There does not appear to be an "official" translation of the expression, but the two versions "All Sweden shall live" and "All of Sweden shall live" seem to be most common.

The original Swedish is "Hela Sverige ska leva!", often with "Hela" underlined.
