*They have no army, navy or air force, however the island nation is naturally guarded by the fact that no-one wants to live there.
*Thanks in large part to the efforts of Greenpeace, Icelanders recently recommenced a lucrative export market of whalemeat to Japan.
*Icelanders don't have surnames.
* Hydro-electricity is so cheap in the nation, that other countries import aluminium ore to Iceland for smelting.
