@Karen With regards to reunification, I for one would welcome Iceland back.
I do however feel there is a problem, because I think icelanders feel too independent and strong.
I don't think you'd want to join us when there is a crisis, such as during the icelandic bank crisis. Because joining us then would be like admitting defeat. Something I don't think you'd want to do.
I could mention that during the icelandic bank crisis, there was a movement here in Norway that we should just buy out Iceland. Pay your bank debt, and take over the country ;-)

I do however wish that Iceland, Faroe Islands, Shetland and Orkney Islands would return to Norway, where they all belong.
However, with the norwegian capital situated in Oslo, facing southwards towards Europe, I think that is an indication of how these islands would be treated if you did rejoin us.
Maybe we should just kick out eastern Norway, move the capital back to Bergen, and then you guys can join us. I'd much rather have Iceland as a part of Norway than having Oslo as a part of Norway.
