Size doesn’t matter in the case of successful independent nations – Iceland and Norway

Iceland – a small independent and successful nation has a population the size of Aberdeen. Icelanders mostly enjoy a very high standard of living and, unlike in Britain, there is very little poverty blighting Iceland.

Across the North Sea from Scotland Norway is very similar in size and population. Even the economy is similar except Norway lacks Scotland’s major exports of whisky and prime beef. Norway shares land borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia and succeeds as a very successful independent sovereign country.
