The Republic of Iceland (Icelandic: Ísland or Lýðveldið Ísland (names of Iceland);
is an island country located in the North Atlantic Ocean. It has a population of about 320,000 and a total
area of 103,000 km². Its capital and largest city is Reykjavík, home to approximately 50% of the national
population. Located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Iceland is volcanically and geologically active on a large scale;
this defines the landscape. The interior mainly consists of a plateau characterised by sand fields,
mountains and glaciers, while many big glacial rivers flow to the sea through the lowlands. Warmed by the Gulf Stream,
Iceland has a temperate climate relative to its latitude and provides a habitable environment and nature.
