Icelandball is and forever will be number one and a Nordic countryball located in the Atlantic ocean. He does not border any other countries due to being an island, but is still relatively close to Greenland-icon Greenlandball. The country is divided into 8 regions, including his capital Reykjavík-icon Reykjavíkball located in the Southwest, giving him a total area of 39,682 square miles, making him the 106th largest country in the world. As of 2016, he maintains a population of about 334,252 inhabitants.

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

Icelandball is often seen as a generally friendly country 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 countryballs' 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.

His national day is June 17th, and his astrological sign is Gemini. He is known for Lazy Town.

History

Settlement and Foreign Rule

At 9th and 10th centuries, Vikingball came here and settled down in here. At Year 930 AD, Icelandic Commonwealth-icon Icelandic Commonwealthball was borned. He remained independent for 300 years, but was killed by Denmark-icon Denmark-Norwayball. He then became Norwegian-Empire-icon Kingdom of Norwayball's son until 1814. In 1874, he finally gained full autonomy At 1914, he regained his independence to some extent, but still was in a personal union with Denmark-icon Denmarkball.

World War II and Independence

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

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

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

Postwar Era

After WWII, he decided to join NATO, despite having no standing army, suck and kind country already. Due to modernization efforts and the infrastructure boost during WW II, Iceland developed extremely rapidly, essetially turning from a Middle-Age like country to a fully modern European nation within years. Despite his seemingly excellent economy, in reality he was in debt and his economy was at risk of failing from even a slight disturbance.

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