Icleand is an island in the Atlantic which owes a tremendous favour to the volcanoes which lent it the majority of its land surface. It is a cool (in more ways than one) volcanic island with a population of only 250,000, all of whom know each other and use patronymics. Its biggest export is Björk. Also known as the homeland of the rival hockey team from the movie “The Mighty Ducks 2”.
It usually does not appear much in AH except as a necessary stepping stone to Leif Ericsson's colonisation of America. Originally a Norwegian/Danish colony. Has one of the oldest parliaments in the world, known as althing (though anglophone members of the board would swear it's “a Thing”).
