Hi Ben,
When you wrote down Sverrig you may have meant Sverige, which is the Swedish spelling for the name of the country. The "ge" sound produces a soft "g" of course, and all characters are pronounced, so if we were to pronounce the word phonetically in English, it would be "sverijuh". But of course, the "j" sound in Swedish is pronounced like a "y" so the word is pronounced "sveriyeh"
