There are of course Norsk Data that made minis and micros (rumor has it
North Korea still runs ND). In Sweden we had Datasaab which made minis and
mainframes. I have a rare micro, the Datasaab D16 which is really a Facit
which is really an Addo.
Swedish NTI made an 8085 SBC kit for education called Mickey. Finish
Telercas made an 1802 based home computer called Telmac. (There are several
swidih micros as well due to NIH syndrome)
Even the danish made minis.
Facit made a very nice mini called DS9000 but only nine or so machines were
made for the military. It was a custom order, if they had gone commercial I
think it could have given the PDP-8 a run for its money, at least locally.
There was a french mini I'd like to mention but I don't recall de name.
Feel free to ask me for more details. Most of the above is fairly easily
