One country with an icecap as large as Sweden. Another country with the most active volcanic area in the world. These two nations may sound very different and yet they have a large quantity of similarities as well. The average population size for a country is 38.2 million people, and although the scale is offset by heavily overpopulated nations, there are also countries that greatly decrease the average. Two of these are Iceland and Greenland. Both are northern island nations with fierce, snowy climates, and neither is home to greater than 350,000 people with Greenland containing just over 55,000. By the names of these two countries, one may assume Iceland is a cold land covered in snow and ice. One may also assume that Greenland is home to the more verdant scenery than its counterpart; however, the entire population of Greenland is forced along the coastline due to the interior being too icy and cold to inhabit. If one moved to Iceland, they would be 88.7% less likely to see the coastline on a daily basis due to the interior of the country being warmer and more inhabitable. These two island nations have a great variety of similarities and differences with holidays, history, culture, and beliefs. This is largely due to their large blend of foreign influence which makes them such unique countries.
Northern Europe is a region spanning Iceland to Northwestern Russia. For our purposes, we may consider Northern Europe as Scandinavia. The region contains volcanic islands, many of which are in Iceland.

From ancient times, the Sámi people have inhabited the northern parts of the Scandinavian Peninsula in the regions now known as Norway, Sweden, Finland, and the Kola Peninsula in Russia. According to Sweden, there are estimated to be about 80,000 Sámi in those four countries, with almost two-thirds of them living in Norway. Considered the only official indigenous people in Scandinavia, the Sámi’s traditional livelihoods include such things as reindeer herding, fishing, hunting, and more recently agriculture (Norokorpi 1). However, over time the Sámi culture has become overrun and assimilated by the Nordic countries as a result of colonialism, discrimination, and underrepresentation in local media.
