Despite having the smallest population in the Nordic and Baltic region, Iceland has a thriving economy and is ranked as one of the top 15 countries in terms of per capita income.
It’s also ranked 13th in the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business rankings, so it’s safe to say the population of just over 330,000 is doing something right.
