    something similar. Relocation is common almost anywhere civilized, you tranquilize an animal, then relocate it. NOT in Norway! Just call some fuckin musketeer, and BANG! A lost moose? BANG! A badger? BANG. Birds? BANG! Aw, a fox, how cu-BANG!

    It's that Viking blood flaring up. See, if Sweden hadn't fucked everything up after the Napoleonic Wars, Norway would still be a part of Denmark and Denmark could keep you guys in line.

    Black plague took 50% of our population, from 1 million down to half a mill. It also killed our royal line, and this helped submit us to Denmark. Then migrations to America, where Norway was 2nd (after Ireland) most reduced in terms of population, 50% again, from 2 mill back down to 1. Neither Sweden nor Denmark suffered anywhere similar losses -

    If not for either of these two demographical catastrophes, we'd have a population of, what, 20 million! We would totally rule Scandinavia!

    That, or massive starvation... but no, RULE SCANDINAVIA!

    How about Denmark takes back Norway and then we both pave over Sweden and turn it into a giant parking lot? Does that sound good?

    Nobody "takes back" Norway! Norway takes back! Greenland, Iceland, Jemtland, Herjedalen, Shetland, Orkney, Dublin, Hebrides, Vinland and Markland!

    Sweden: "I am the Scandinavia!"

    Denmark-Norway: "Not. Yet."

    Sweden: "It's Napoleonic Wars, then."

    Seriously, though, Denmark's gonna need Norway to scooch over a little bit so we can overthrow Sweden and restore Denmark to it's former glory.

    Oh, and we're gonna be borrowing Iceland for a little bit.

    You should go to court and rightfully claim North America as yours. FIRST SETTLERS!

    Technically speaking, Iceland deserves that honor (IIRC, the first Scandinavians to reach America were Icelandic) but since Iceland rightfully belongs to Denmark, Denmark should be able to claim North America or, at the very least, Newfoundland and Vinland.

    Icelanders, at the time, were Norwegian colonizers. It was only into the 1400s, that Icelanders begun to feel like Icelanders, separate from Norwegians (this directly related to collapse of Norwegian influence with destruction of royal line). Iceland came under direct Danish rule as late as the 1800s

    Denmark takes way too much credit for Iceland as well as Greenland >:I

    As for Vinland, Denmark had *nothing* to do with that >:I That was all Norway! Norwegian settlers in Iceland, who were seeking to expand further. Denmark had nothing to do with Iceland for at least 800 more years, and once they did, Iceland pretty much ran towards independence

    Norway belongs to Denmark. America belongs to Norway. Sweden belongs at the bottom of the ocean. Can we all agree on that last one?

    ... yes >:I However, I will get to the bottom of what kind of power the Danes have swayed over you.

    My mom's a native Dane. I'm half-Danish, and Denmark has always been my "in case of inescapable horribleness happening, go here" country. Plus, I read about Scandinavian history, and Denmark gets screwed at the start of the 19th century and it doesn't start going uphill again until the middle of the 20th century.

    It doesn't hurt that about two-thirds or so of my extended family lives in Denmark.

    Norway is the master of getting screwed though, you can't compete with us there

    Well, we did get a bit un-screwed with the discovery of oil in the North Sea, in the 1960s. Have fun selling furniture Denmark :]

    Uh... Sweden is the big furniture maker. Denmark makes LEGO, shipping, pharmaceuticals, wind turbines and beer.

    I know Sweden has the whole IKEA thing, but Denmark produces these little twined chairs. If we rule out regular trade, then that - and beer - is what's left :V
    Sweden is a production juggernaut though. More furniture than Denmark could ever dream of, cars, airplanes, electronics, music, fucking bastards.

    That was part of the list, by the way, they produce fucking bastards.
