Scandinavia and the World


The Philippines is an island country in Southeast Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It has 7,641 islands. Spain (1521-1898) and the United States (1898-1946) colonized the country.

The Philippines and East Timor are the only nations in East Asia where the practiced religion is Christianity. The Philippines is the fourth largest Asian Anglophone country.

Classified as one of the developing nations of the world, the Philippines has been experiencing political instability, poverty, and a population growing at an extremely fast rate. On the other hand, it is one of the world's most bountiful countries in terms of flora and fauna, has many urbanized cities with progressive socioeconomic growth, has deep, rich cultures of both ancient and contemporary, and both Time and Reader's Digest discussed survey results that Filipinos are happier in comparison to people of developed countries.

It is well-known that besides a booming export market and local corporate businesses, the Philippines' economy heavily relies on foreign remittances from overseas workers. That's right, one of the country's biggest exports is its people, who make up a major proportion of overseas workers from all over the world. It helps that most of these workers speak surprisingly good English, a mark of the nation's colonized past.
