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.

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.
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.
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.

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.
