Independence

Declaring our independence from Sweden-Norway in 1327, Ólafur Sturlungur the man to credit for it, probably the nation's independence Hero. Their independence was very smooth from Sweden-Norway, Sweden-Norway didn't responded to our declaration of independence.

Lost our independence once again in the Second Treaty of Akranes in 1401, only to regain it in 1408.

The Great Church

Constructed in 1327 by Archbishop Ari Guðmundsson, it houses a portrait of St. Thorlak, Ari Guðmundsson and Jarl Brunhild II of Greenland. It houses the grave and relics of St. Thorlak and a relic from St. Helen given to them by Cardinal Secretary Alessandro Guidi right before the 1327 conclave.

Economic Policies

Here are some of the economic policies of Iceland.

The Housing Policy

The Government is known for buying out families and moving them to low populated areas of the country.

The Arnar initiative

A policy introduced in 1330 by President Arnar Sigurðson to buy out fishermen and paying them monthly salaries and upkeep on boats in exchange for all the fish which the government redistributes throughout the country.

Culture

Iceland has some famous Bohemian works, Icelandic books include; Mynd af Dóra Gráa (Picture of Dorian Grey) and the Heimskringla. In 1411 Crown Prince Andrés composed the Main Psalm of the Celtic Lollard Church;

Pray a little prayer with me

It will make you feel secure and free

Pray for a better tomorrow 

Pray for a sunnier day

Pray to leave the pain and the sorrow

Pray to find a better way

Pray to gain salvation 

Pray for those in starvation 

Pray for the soul of your friends

But never pray for someone to get a gruesome end

God doesn’t notice the evil

The cruel or deceitful

He sees the people that pray

And let’s them into heaven to play.

Foreign Relations

The Petty Kingdom of Iceland is a founding member of the Celtic Confederacy (dating back to 1371). In addition, it maintains good relations with the vast majority of Continental Europe for trade - it can ill-afford to sour relations with allies against its main rival, the Örebro Union. Relations with the Kingdom of England, however, have traditionally been strained.
