Icelandball is a
British supermarket chain 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 Greenlandball. Its clay is divided into 8 regionballs, including its capital 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 NATOball, Arctic Councilball, and the Nordic Councilball, as well as the United Nations like almost every other countryball in the world. Today it is considering to join EUball though, which might upset its close sibling 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.
Settlement and Foreign Rule
In the 9th and 10th centuries, Vikingball came here and settled down here. In the year 930 AD, Icelandic Commonwealthball was born. It remained independent for 300 years but was killed by Denmark-Norwayball. It then became 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 Denmarkball.
World War II and Independence
When Denmarkball fell to Nazi Germanyball, Icelandball was unable to have relations with Denmarkball, and thus decided to declare itself neutral. However, the UKball was paranoid that 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 UKball posted notices of such "occupation" in broken Icelandic.
By 1944, Icelandball decided to declare itself an independent republic.
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 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.
