Königreich Norwegen   
Norway -
Kongeriket Norge - Noreg

A constitutional monarchy occupying the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula in northern Europe. A powerful kingdom in the Middle Ages, Norway later came under the domination of Denmark and, after 1814, Sweden. In 1905, Norway became completely independent. The country was occupied by Germany from 1940 to 1945. 

Following World War II, Norway abandoned its traditional neutrality and joined NATO. The country's abundant hydroelectric resources have produced an ongoing economic boom that has given Norway one of the highest standards of living in the world.
