Living in Iceland

The nation of Iceland, a Nordic island, is located in the North Atlantic Ocean. It is roughly located in the middle of the United Kingdom, Norway and Greenland. It has the lowest population density of any country in Europe. Its total population is just under 350,000, and 216,000 of these people reside within the capital city Reykjavik and its suburbs. Iceland is perhaps best renowned for its natural features. It was formed by volcanic activity, and thus is the site of many active volcanoes; the eruption of one of these, Eyjafjallajökull, in 2010, caused global disruption to aviation services due to the ash cloud that the eruption produced. As well as volcanoes, to lots of geysers; these prove to be one of the Iceland’s biggest tourist attractions. In terms of productivity, Iceland ranks seventh in the World. It mains exports are the produce of fishing, although aluminium also comprises 30% of Iceland’ exports. The services and tourism sectors are both increasing in significance. The Church of Iceland, which is an evangelical church, is official most dominant, although in reality secularism is on the rise. Iceland is a very equal society, with a strong focus on gender equality, and low levels of income inequality. Iceland is an island of literature enthusiasts, being a global leader in terms of bookstores per person and the amount of literature translation carried out. Sport is a big part of Icelandic culture; their national sport is handball, although in recent years they have exceeded expectations in football, gaining international attention.
