Rotten fish? Am I in heavens?

Faroe Islandsball is an autonomous countryball of Denmark-icon Denmarkball and located northeast of Ireland-icon Irelandball, west of Norway-icon Norwayball and northwest of Scotland-icon Scotlandball.

Faroe Islandsball is also known to kill whales, ignoring what the rest of the world thinks about it.

History

The history of Faroe Islandsball starts in 6 AD when Irish monks discovered him. They described him as the "paradise of sheep and birds".

Later, in the 9th century, Faroe Islandsball was a Nordic viking, part of Kingdom of Norwayball. There, Faroe Islandsball was given a flag and a name, with Faroe Islandsball, meaning "sheep land".

Special status under foreign Monarchs

Kingdom of Norwayball, long aspired to gain control over Faroe Islandball, but for many years Faroe Islandsball managed to fight them off. However, by the latter half of the 12th century, Faroe Islandsball eventually was apart of Kingdom of Norwayball.

Faroe Islandsball later joined Norway, to become Kalmar Unionball. When Kalmar Union broke up and became Sweden-Norwayball in 1814, Faroe Islandsball remained under Denmarkball. Due to, among other factors, remoteness, both Norway and Denmark always maintained a special jurisdiction of Faroe Islandsball, along with their distinct language and culture, guarded by the ancient Løgting.

The royal trade monopoly long stood in the way of development. When it was abolished in 1856 an export oriented commercial fishing industry rapidly developed in Faroe Islandsball's clay, kick-starting the development of a modern market economy and population growth.

Nation Building

The special constitutional status, combined with a growing export oriented economy and a cultural national awakening by the late 19th century, fueled the nation-building process and the establishment of political autonomy. Since adopting the Home Rule agreement of 1948, Faroe Islandsball has had an extensive self-government.

Today, fisheries and aquaculture are the basis for the production and export of high quality fish products, which constitute 95% of the total income of exported goods. Diversification of the economy and the development of a welfare society has led to a variety of working opportunities in the economy of Faroe Islandsball.
