Norway Overview

Norway is a constitutional monarchy in Northern Europe. The land to the west of Scandinavia has a large north-south extension and inside by Mountains (Scandes embossed) with harsh climates. The Atlantic coast is richly indented by numerous fjords and archipelagos. While the north on the Arctic Circle and the high mountain regions are almost deserted, a third of the population is concentrated in the south and the Oslofjord. The Sami minority live in the northeast, often still in their traditional way of life as fishermen and reindeer herders. Society is characterized by a high degree of consensus, openness and equality. The tax-financed welfare system includes medical care, social benefits and training at the highest level. Life expectancy is among the highest in the world. By extracting oil and natural gas off the coast, Norway has risen from a poor agricultural state to one of the richest countries in the world. A large part of the revenues from the state oil industry is invested as a reserve in the Norwegian State Fund. This world’s largest sovereign wealth fund is supposed to guarantee the economic security of the citizens after the oil reserves are exhausted. The country was from 8-11. Century starting point for the forays of the Vikings until Christianization forced them to give up their way of life. Later it was under foreign rule from Denmark and Sweden, which long hindered the development of its own culture. In 1905 Norway became independent. The country, intent on its independence, is not a member of the EU, but part of the Schengen area.
