Åland Island shouldn't be a country

It seems odd that there are two geographical entities for Åland Islands. They are:

The first is a country-level object and seems to hold all the observations. The second is a part of Finland as it should be and seems to hold no observations. What is the reasoning behind this or is this just a kind of bug? As far as I know, the status of the islands as autonomous province of Finland has never been in question.
