::Norway the land of freedom and democracy ::


Flag of Norway -God save the King- and free us from terror Amen!Norway gained its independence from Sweden in 1905. As a separate realm, Norway stayed free of World War I but suffered German occupation in World War II. Discovery of oil and gas in adjacent waters in the late 1960s gave a strong boost to Norway's economic fortunes. Norway is planning for the time when its oil and gas reserves are depleted and is focusing on containing spending on its extensive welfare system. It has decided at this time not to join the European Union and the new euro currency regime. According to UN and the development program (UNDP) Norway is the riches  and best country to live in the world, with Australia as number two and Canada as number three!
