Northern European Countries
The northern region of Europe is called Northern Europe. A general definition of Northern Europe could include some or all of the places like the British Isles, Fennoscandia, the Jutland peninsula, the Baltic plain to the east, and the numerous islands that are located offshore of Northern Europe's mainland and the main European continent. Northern Europe is renowned for its diverse natural landscape, which includes vibrantly green forests, active volcanoes, and geysers.
A system developed by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) that classifies the world's nations into regional and sub regional divisions is known as the United Nations geoscheme. According to the United Nations geoscheme, the following countries are classified as Northern Europe. Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Sweden, United Kingdom, Åland, Faroe Islands, Isle of Man, Svalbard and Jan Mayen are the Northern European Countries. Sweden is the largest country in Northern Europe, with a total land area of 450,295 km2 (173,860 square miles), and the sixth largest in all of Europe.
With the exception of the United Kingdom, Northern European Countries often have a small population compared to their size, with the majority of people residing in cities. Many countries in Northern Europe's educational system are ranked favorably in worldwide comparisons, with Estonia and Finland topping the list among OECD nations in Europe.
The economies of Northern European Countries are generally developed, and these nations also have some of the greatest living standards in the world. They frequently perform well on surveys of quality of life, such as the Human Development Index. In a large portion of Northern Europe, particularly in Scandinavia, Protestantism is the preeminent Christian tradition. Many European nations have sizable populations that practice non-Christian religions, especially Islam.
