An island group situated between the Norwegian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean is the Faroe Islands. The country itself is self governing but is under the rule of the Kingdom of Denmark. This island nation has a small population of 50,000 people according to the last census in 2010.
The islands have been self-governing since 1948. The Faroese people have taken control of their affairs in most domestic matters while the army, police, currency and foreign affairs are dealt by the Denmark. The government holds executive power in local affairs. The Faroe Islands have been under Danish rule since 1388. After WW2, the island decided they wanted to be independent. Due to election results being very narrow and the government not reaching any consensus they decided later on that year in 1948 to just have a home rule law.
