Iceland is the Best Country in the World (Per Capita)

Icelandic people have a saying “Iceland, best in the world”. Even though this is of course not true in many aspects, Icelandic people are still very proud of their history and culture. With Iceland´s small population of only 330,000 people, whenever one Icelandic person achieves something, all Icelanders unite together and become proud as a nation. Because of Iceland´s small population, the nation has managed to top many lists if you look at ‘per capita’ numbers.
