Icelandball is a Nordic countryball located in the Atlantic ocean. He does not border any other countries due to being an island, but is still relatively close to Greenlandball. His clay is divided into 8 regions, including his capital Reykjavíkball located in the Southwest, giving him a total area of 103 000 square kilometers, making him the 106th largest country in the world. As of 2018, he maintains a population of about 353,070 inhabitants. No, he is not a land of ice. He is a land of geysers.
Due to being a highly Westernized and developed country located in Northwest Europe, Iceland has been able to gain membership in NATOball, Arctic Councilball, and the Nordic Councilball, as well as the United Nations like almost every other country in the world. Today he is considering to join EUball though which might upset his close brother Norwayball
Icelandball is often seen as a generally friendly country and does not have many enemies (or friends outside Scandinavia for that matter). But Icelandball has a tendency to spew (or in some cases fart) ash all over Europe, much to other countryballs' annoyance. Icelandball also enjoys its small island nation status. Sometimes it watches Europe's problems from afar, usually with popcorn in hand. It likes to stay alone, and has one of the smallest populations in the world.
His national day is June 17th, and his astrological sign is Gemini. Despite not having a huge population, he manages to dub movies from Disney, Warner Bros, Universal and Paramount into the Icelandic language.
Settlement and Foreign Rule
At 9th and 10th centuries, Vikingball came here and settled down in here. In the year 930 AD, Icelandic Commonwealthball was borned. He remained independent for 300 years, but was killed by Denmark-Norwayball. He then became Kingdom of Norwayball's son until 1814. In 1874, he finally gained full autonomy. In 1914, he regained his independence to some extent, but still was in a personal union with Denmarkball.
World War II and Independence
When Denmarkball fell to Nazi Germanyball, Icelandball was unable to relations with Denmarkball, and thus decided to declare himself neutral. However, the UKball was paranoid that Nazi Germanyball would target Icelandball, as he is an important strategic position in the Atlantic, and "invaded" Icelandball. Since Icelandball had no standing military, Icelandball reluctantly agreed to allow Allied forces to "occupy" him, and UKball posted notices of such "occupation" in broken Icelandic.
By 1944, Icelandball decided to declare himself an independent republic.
After WWII, he decided to join NATO, despite having no standing army,
suck and kind country already. Due to modernization efforts and the infrastructure boost during WW II, Iceland developed extremely rapidly, essetially turning from a Middle-Age like country to a fully modern European nation within years. Despite his seemingly excellent economy, in reality he was in debt and his economy was at risk of failing from even a slight disturbance.
During the Great Recession, he began to consider joining the EU as well, after seeing how fragile his economy was. To make matters worse, a subglacial volcano named Eyjafjallajökull erupted in 2010, spewing large ash clouds and halting air travel in Northern Europe and America. However, when he began to make rapid recovery, he dropped the idea. During the great recession, he tried to promote tourism to aid his decimated economy, advertising his landscape and
brainwashing attracting large amounts of tourists. Even today, he is still a very popular tourist destination, we are number one.
