If you don’t know where the Faroe Islands are, that’s OK.
To be honest, it’s not all that strange, considering the total land mass of the 18 islands that make up the Faroe Islands is about 6,500 smaller than the USA, and their population 28,000 times smaller than China’s. The fact you don’t know where the Faroe Islands are located just goes to show, perhaps, that even though the planet has been well charted and documented, there are still new discoveries to be made.
The Faroe Islands is an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands located halfway between Iceland and Scotland in the North Atlantic Ocean. The name was settled in the 1200 century and means “sheep islands”. (and yes, you will see why!)
The main industry in the Faroe Islands is fishing. This sector accounts for approximately 90% of exports and about 20% of GDP. The islands’ population of 52,000 is spread out across the 17 inhabited islands. Since 1948, the Faroe Islands have been a self-governing nation under the external sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark.
