Norwegians display striking amounts of mostly harmless nationalism, which likely grew from the fact that Norway during the late middle ages and early modern period was governed by UsefulNotes/{{Denmark}}, then conquered by UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} in the aftermath of the NapoleonicWars despite having declared independence. Norway only became an independent nation in 1905, when it [[UsefulNotes/OtherRoyalFamilies adopted a Danish prince and his family]], gave them Norwegian names, and made them regents. Has one of the world's oldest active constitutions, dating to 1814, though it does not accurately reflect the workings of the parliamentary democracy in place since 1884, not having been rewritten or replaced to reflect the realities of the political situation.

The Norwegian farm culture was arguably the starting point for both patriotic movements and romantic nationalism later on. Because of the Danish rule, Norway was not exactly urbanized in 1814, and only slightly more in 1905. The Norwegian farm militia made the backbone of the Dano-Norwegian army during the union years, and has shown some examples of historical badassery. Thus, a militia of 500 armed farmers massacred a better equipped scottish mercenary band in 1612, during the Kalmar war. Later, feuds with UsefulNotes/{{Sweden}} gave the "Norwegian farmer" just renown, not least in the {{Napoleonic Wars}}, when the mostly Norwegian army beat a Swedish invasion force. Twice.

A founding member of {{NATO}}, it turned down [[UsefulNotes/EuropeanUnion EEC/EU membership]] after two referendums, the first in 1972, the second in 1994. In fact, the EU membership question is so divisive that none of the pro-membership parties actually dare to push for another application for fear of the turmoil it would bring. Norway is also (in)famous for being one of the only developed countries, along with Japan, not to have banned whaling.
