    We are number one! HEY!
     
    — Stefán Karl Stefánsson

    Icelandball is a Nordic countryball located in the Atlantic ocean. It does not border any other countryballs due to being an island, but is still relatively close to Greenland-icon.png Greenlandball. Its clay is divided into 8 regionballs, including its capital Reykjavík-icon.png Reykjavíkball located in the southwest, giving it a total area of 103 000 square kilometers, making it the 106th largest countryball in the world. As of 2018, it maintains a population of about 353,070 inhabitants. No, it is not a land of ice, it is a land of geysers.

    Due to being a highly Westernized and developed countryball located in Northwest Europe, Iceland has been able to gain membership in NATO-icon.png NATOball, Arctic Council-icon.png Arctic Councilball, and the Kalmar Union-icon.png Nordic Councilball, as well as the UN-icon.png United Nations like almost every other countryball in the world. Today it is considering to join EU-icon.png EUball though, which might upset its close sibling Norway-icon.png Norwayball

    Icelandball is often seen as a generally friendly countryball 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 countries' 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; being the most sparsely populated country in Europe.

    Its national day is June 17th, and its astrological sign is Gemini. Despite not having a huge population, it manages to dub movies from Disney, Warner Bros, Universal, and Paramount into the Icelandic language. It's also known to have the world's best politics.

    History

    Settlement and Foreign Rule

    In the 9th and 10th centuries, Vikingball came here and settled down here. In the year 930 AD, Icelandic Commonwealth-icon.png Icelandic Commonwealthball was born. It remained independent for 300 years but was killed by Denmark-icon.png Denmark-Norwayball. It then became Norwegian-Empire-icon.png Kingdom of Norwayball's child until 1814. In 1874, it finally gained full autonomy. In 1914, it regained its independence to some extent but still was in a personal union with Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball.

    World War II and Independence

    When Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball fell to Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball, Icelandball was unable to have relations with Denmark-icon.png Denmarkball, and thus decided to declare itself neutral. However, the UK-icon.png UKball was paranoid that Nazi-icon.png Nazi Germanyball would target Icelandball, as it 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" it, and UK-icon.png UKball posted notices of such "occupation" in broken Icelandic.

    UK-icon.png UKball then handed control of Icelandball to USA-icon.png USAball, who then worked on and laid out much of Icelandball's infrastructure, helping Iceland's later post-war economic boom.

    By 1944, Icelandball decided to declare itself an independent republic.

    Postwar Era

    After WWII, it decided to join NATOball, despite having no standing army. Due to modernization efforts and the infrastructure boost during WWII, Icelandball developed extremely rapidly, essentially turning from a Middle-Age country to a fully modern European nation within years. Despite its seemingly excellent economy, in reality, it was in debt and its economy was at risk of falling from even a slight disturbance.

    During the Great Recession, it began to consider joining the EU-icon.png EUball as well, after seeing how fragile its 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 it began to make a rapid recovery, it dropped the idea. During the Great Recession, it tried to promote tourism to aid his decimated economy, advertising its landscape and attracting large amounts of tourists. Even today, it is still a very popular tourist destination, we are number one.
