Iceland is the most sparsely populated country
in Europe with an average of about three
inhabitants per square km. Almost four-fifths
of the country are uninhabited and mostly
uninhabitable, the population being concentrated
in a narrow coastal belt, valleys and the
southwest corner of the country.
Iceland's population is around 313.000, 2/3 of them
live in the capital, Reykjavik, and surrounding areas.
Iceland is a progressive modern European society
with a high standard of living and a high level
of technology and education.

Iceland is an island 103,000 kmz in the middle of the
North Atlantic Ocean between Greenland & Europe.
Iceland is unique due to it's geothermal activities,
like volcanos and hot springs which
supply the country with electricity and hot water
for heating.
