FAROE ISLANDS FAST FACT

Depending on who you believe, the Faroe Island's unemployment rate hovers between 3% and 5%. That's among the lowest in Europe (although many Faroe Islanders don't consider themselves European).

The Faroe Islands economy is heavily dependent on fishing and tourism.

This week's photo of Suduroy comes from a gallery of great looking Faroe Islands photos that can be found here.

That's right, we have a very low unemployment rate, the lowest in Northern Europe, and our laws are very strict on foreign work labour, so the government is trying to sort that matter out, so we can import foreign workers, because we need them very much.

One more thing, why is a part of your template in Icelandic?, i.e. "Sendu inn athugasemd" ?

I changed my template to Icelandic as a nod to the Faroe Islands. Faroese wasn't an option but, as I understand it, Icelandic is pretty close (both are based on Old Norse).

So that's why. It was kind of a gimick. I'll change it back to English one of these days.

It's fine. Many faroe islanders understand faroese, so you can just leave it there if you want to, but almost everyone here understand english.
