The country of the week here at Ryan Motors is Iceland! We discovered that very little is known about Iceland, so we dug deep to find some interesting information about the country that lies between Greenland and Great Britain.
- Population- 323,000
- Capital- Reykjavik
- Size- 39,756 square miles
- Currency- Icelandic Krona
- Language-Icelandic and English
- Area Code- 354
- Current President- Ólafur Ragnar Grímsson
- Prime Minister- Jóhanna Sigurðardóttir
The government functions very similarly to many other European countries as the president of the country does not have nearly as much power as the prime minister and the legislative body. Iceland is a very beautiful country with an abundance of mountains, volcanoes, lakes and glaciers. The climate in Iceland is quite cool as it is near the Arctic Circle. Iceland is the outdoorsman’s dream, as hiking, mountain biking, camping and other unique recreational activities are available all around the country. Iceland did compete in the 2012 summer Olympics but they did not receive any medals.
