Isolated island nation off the north west coast of Europe. Part of the Nordics.

Iceland is an island country in the North Atlantic Ocean, with a population of 356,991 and an area of 103,000 km2 (40,000 sq mi), making it the most sparsely populated country in Europe. The capital and largest city is Reykjavík. Reykjavík and the surrounding areas in the southwest of the country are home to over two-thirds of the population. Iceland is volcanically and geologically active.

Until the 20th century, Iceland relied largely on subsistence fishing and agriculture. Industrialization of the fisheries and Marshall Plan aid following World War II brought prosperity, and Iceland became one of the wealthiest and most developed nations in the world. It became a part of the European Economic Area in 1994; this further diversified the economy into sectors such as finance, biotechnology, and manufacturing.

Financial crimes pursued

Between 2008 and December 2015, a total of 26 bankers were sentenced to a combined 74 years in prison in Iceland.[1][2] After that the island aimed at creating better circumstances for journalistic freedom, in terms of reporting and whistleblower activity.[3]

Eugenics

Due to abortion, down syndrome has been eradicated.[4]

History

Bjarni Benediktsson was Icelandic Prime Minster for most of the 1960s. He died in office from a fire which also killed his wife and grandson.[citation needed]

Vaccination during COVID has been some of the quickest in the world.
