About Faroe Island:

The Faroe Islands ( is an archipelago and autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark,[6][7] situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland, at about 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-north-west of mainland Scotland. The total area is approximately 1,400 km2(540 sq mi) with a 2010 population of almost 50,000 people.
The Faroe Islands have been a self-governing country within the Danish Realm since 1948. Over the years, the Faroese have taken control of most domestic matters. Areas that remain the responsibility of Denmark includemilitary defence, police, justice, currency and foreign affairs.[8] The Faroe Islands also have representatives in theNordic Council as members of the Danish delegation.
The islands were associated with and taxed by Norway, then the Union of Kalmar, and then Denmark?Norway until 1814, when Norway was united with Sweden. Scandinavia was in political turmoil following the Sixth Coalition of theNapoleonic Wars, when the Treaty of Kiel granted Denmark control over the Faroes, Iceland and Greenland
