Norway, or officially the Kingdom of Norway (Norwegian: Kongeriket Norge or Kongeriket Noreg) is a Nordic country on the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, bordering Sweden, Finland and Russia. Norway's extensive coastline along the North Atlantic Ocean is home to its famous fjords. The country has a very elongated shape. The Kingdom of Norway also includes the Arctic island territories of Svalbard and Jan Mayen. The Norwegian sovereignty on Svalbard is based on the Svalbard Treaty, but this does not apply to Jan Mayen. Bouvet Island in the South Atlantic Ocean and a claim for Peter I Island in the South Pacific Ocean are also external dependencies, but these are not part of the Kingdom. Additionally, Norway has a claim on Dronning Maud Land in Antarctica.Motto: Royal Motto: Alt for Norge (All for Norway) 1814 Eidsvoll oath: Enig og tro til Dovre faller (United and Loyal until the Dovre Mountains fall) Anthem: Ja, vi elsker dette landet Capital Oslo 59°56′ N 10°41′ E Largest city Oslo Official language(s) Norwegian¹ Government King Prime Minister Constitutional monarchy Harald V Jens Stoltenberg Constitution Independence - Declared - Recognised 17 May 1814 From union with Sweden 7 June 1905 26 October 1905 Area - Total - Water (%) 324,220 km² (68th ²) 125,149 mi² 6.0% Population - February 2006 est. - 2001 census - Density 4,641,500 (114th) 4,520,947 14/km² (166th ²) 37/mi² GDP (PPP) - Total - Per capita 2005 estimate $194.7 billion (42nd) $42,400 (4th) HDI (2003) 0.963 (1st) – high Currency Norwegian krone (NOK) Time zone - Summer (DST) CET (UTC+1) CEST (UTC+2) Internet TLD .no ³ Calling code +47 1Official national language is Norwegian bokmål and nynorsk.
