Norway History

Norway also has rich resources of gas fields, hydropower, fish, forests, and minerals. Norway was the second largest exporter of seafood in 2006. Other main industries include food processing, shipbuilding, metals, chemicals, mining, fishing and pulp and paper products. Norway has a Scandinavian welfare model and the largest capital reserve per capita of any nation.

Norway was ranked highest of all countries in human development from 2001 to 2007. It was also rated the most peaceful country in the world in a 2007 survey by Global Peace Index. It is a founding member of NATO.

Norway is officially called Kongeriket Norge in the bokml written norm, and Kongeriket Noreg in the nynorsk written norm. In other languages spoken in Norway, the country is known as:

The usual Old Norse form of Norway is Noregr and the usual medieval Latin form Norvegia, though the earliest known written occurrence of the name is English, in the form norweg. Although some medieval texts attribute the name to a mythical King Nrr, it is conventionally derived today from Old Norse *norvegr, meaning he northern route"". There is, however, some possibility that medieval forms in nor-, north- are folk-etymologisations, and that the name has other origins."

The Old Norse and nynorsk forms are quite similar to a Sami word that means along the coast"" or ""along the sea"" realized as nuorrek in contemporary Lule Sami. The presence of the archaic prosecutive case marker supports the claim that the Sami word is indigenous and not a borrowing from North Germanic languages. Either way, competition over the linguistic origins of the name can be seen to reflect cultural tension between Sami ethnic groups and the dominant culture of Norway, which derives its identity from an Old Norse-speaking past."
