Iceland is a Nordic European island country situated at the confluence of the North Atlantic and Arctic Oceans, on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The country is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Iceland has a free-market economy with relatively low corporate taxes while maintaining a welfare system that provides universal health care and tertiary education (source: Wikipedia).

Iceland's economy benefits globally from the scaled out fishing industry and the anti-Communist European Marshall Plan. Iceland's economy is well-variegated with an effective success rate of its pro-environment and feminist political Left-Green Movement. The nation is socially headed by its president and prime minister.

Iceland has its own stock market, the ICE, and its own quaint airline company, Icelandair which boasts a satisfying international airport.

A very motivating fact about Iceland is that renewable energies ---geothermal and hydropower --- provide almost all of the country's electricity.

Iceland's written and spoken language is Icelandic, a North Germanic language descended from Old Norse. Icelandic has preserved more verb and noun inflection, and has to a considerable extent developed new vocabulary based on native roots rather than borrowings from other languages (source: Wikipedia).

Icelandic language is similar to the lyrical sounds of flowery Finnish and poetic Norwegian but is more somber in tone. The lyrical musician Bjork hails from Iceland.

The material qualities of Iceland reflect the offbeat new age social marketability of inustrialization-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Airport 1975" (1974).

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
