How the North works



I found this lying unfinished around on my computer, and because I’ve got no comic today you’ll have to do with this.

Being the Dane I am, I of course forgot the Sami People (the Nordic "Indians").

EDIT: Yes, Sweden got Norway later on, but that is not what the bottom picture is about. For many years the Nordics were separated in West-North and East-North. When Sweden got Norway that messed up the separation of West and East and marked Denmark’s decline from power.

This is really informative. I thought "Scandinavia" referred to the whole of the Nordics, being the ignorant American that I am. Also, how did Denmark go from owning like 90% of the North to just that little peninsula (plus Greenland and the Faroes, but those are pretty much independent (I'm probably wrong, but I thought since it said self-governmented... someone help me please))?

Greenland just looks so sour, like he just drank lemon juice.

Iceland signed a contract with Norway. When the alliance between Denmark and Norway broke we were sent under the control of Denmark, against our wills.

@KofudDane So, the North was all Denmark?
And while i'm talking to you, wasn't Denmark apart of Norway?

I'm pretty sure that in the viking age, Sweden was also part of Denmark.

You might remember that once upon a time Norway ruled following countires/lands: Denmark, The Faroes, Iceland, Greenland and Jamtland. Then Norway just gave it all away to Denmark because of a fucking stupid marriage with Margrete of Denmark!
Suck it Denmark! :P
