Living in Norway

Living in Norway is like living in an igloo. It's always cold, and you have to eat fish all the time. You also have to wear a lot of clothes, or else you'll die.

Besides that Norway is a very nice country to live in. We have good schools and teachers. Everyone in Norway speaks Norwegian and English, and we also understand Swedish and Danish, but they don't understand us as good as we understand them.
In Norway we have a democracy. We have elections every 4 years, where we choose our government. Currently Jens Stoltenberg is the Prime minister.  We also have a king and Queen, but they really don't have any power.
Norway is a very small and anonymous country, that few has heard of, or know anything about. So i want to clear something up; polar bears don't walk around in the streets, we don't wear Viking hats or live in the forests. Well, some do, but not the majority.
In 2010, Norway topped the united Nation's global list of the best country to live in for the eight year running (according to this article). We are one of the countries with very high human development, along with Australia, New Zealand, USA and Ireland etc. Norway has a good economy because of the long coastline that wraps around the country, which gives us access to oil and fish.  
My opinion is that Norway is one of the most boring countries ever, and when i get older, i really want to move away to somewhere warm.
