Geography of Norway

The capital of Norway is the city of Oslo with a population of 792 thousand. The area of Norway is 385,207 square kilometers and its population is 5 million and 130 thousand people. The most important cities in Norway include Bergen with 272 thousand people, Trondheim with 153 thousand people, Stavanger with 111 thousand people and Barum with 103 thousand people. Almost 70% of Norway’s land is uninhabitable due to extreme cold and proximity to the North Pole, and as we go from the north to the south of Norway, the cold air decreases and the population density increases.
Norway is a mountainous country whose northern half has very cold weather. Most of Norway’s land is covered with forest, even in the mountainous region. The wood of these forests is a good source of income for Norway. The northern circuit passes through the northern regions of this country. A part of the borders of Norway and Finland is formed by the “Tana” river.
Norway has many reserves such as crude oil, natural gas, minerals, aquatics, timber, fresh water and hydroelectric power. The oil industry accounts for about a quarter of the country’s gross domestic product, and the country has the fourth highest per capita income in the world. Norway follows the model of the welfare-oriented countries of Northern Europe, and in exchange for receiving heavy taxes from its citizens, the government grants them universal health insurance and It subsidizes higher education. There is also a comprehensive social security system in this country. From 2001 to 2006 and again from 2009 to 2011, Norway had the highest human development index in the world.
Oil is Norway’s main export; Although this country is not a member of the OPEC organization, it exports 3 million barrels of crude oil daily. Other Norwegian exports include beef, milk and other livestock products. More than half of the area of Norway is covered with trees and wood is one of the main exports of this country.
Politics and government
Norway has one of the most developed democratic and rule-of-law governments in the world. Since 1814, approximately 45% of men (age 25 or older) have had the right to vote. Meanwhile, in Britain this figure was 20% (1832), Sweden 5% (1866) and Belgium 1.15% (1840). According to the democracy index since 2010, Norway has been considered the most democratic government in the world. Social democracy and policies related to the equality of individual rights have made Norway a homogeneous society with a huge level of public trust between the social strata and between the people and the government. A high level of trust makes economic growth easier and smoother.
The Constitution of Norway was adopted on May 17, 1814, inspired by the Declaration of Independence of the United States (1776) and the French Revolution (1798). According to this law, Norway has a centralized government of a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system in which the king of Norway is considered the head of the country and the prime minister is the head of government. Based on this constitution, which is the highest legal document in this country, power is divided between the legislative, executive and judicial branches.
The king of this country officially holds the executive power. However, after the establishment of a parliamentary system in this country, the duties of the king became highly ceremonial and ceremonial. For example, the king must officially appoint or dismiss the prime minister and other ministers of the executive branch after the approval of the parliament. Similarly, the king of Norway is the commander-in-chief of the armed forces and is known abroad as a symbol of unity with the title of the highest diplomatic official.
Harald V of the Schleswig-Holstein Sønderborg Glocksburg dynasty was crowned King of Norway on January 17, 1991, after the death of his father.
