The word "maa" is almost everything in Finnish hahaha

Ground, soil, country, countryside, terrain, area, Earth.... What else? Haha

So would those all be valid answers to this question?

Some of them, yes. "Countryside" and "area" definitely not, but the others could work.

"The countryside is frozen" - "Maaseutu on jäässä"

"The area is frozen" - "Alue on jäässä"

Why can't it be "The land is frozen"?

"The land is frozen" is also a correct translation.
