Norway is situated in the western part of the Scandinavian peninsula. Nearly 70% of Norway is uninhabitable and covered by mountains, glaciers, moors, and rivers.

Nearly half of the inhabitants of the country live in the far south, in the region around Oslo, the capital. 2014 estimated population of 5,147,792.

About nine-tenths of all Norwegians belong to the Evangelical Lutheran national church, the Church of Norway, which is Norway2endowed by the government. The largest groups outside this establishment are Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, Lutheran Free Church members, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Methodists, and Baptists. As a result of Asian immigration, there also are small groups of Muslims and Buddhists.
