Icelandic-speaking nations:

Icelandic is a Germanic language in the Scandinavian language family. Icelandic descend from the old viking language (called Norse), and haven't changed so much after 1000 years as the other Scandinavian languages (Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Faroese). People from Iceland cannot automaticly understand Norwegian, Swedish or Danish, but can understand Faroese after some training. RL Iceland is the only real national state (the expression NationStates is named after) in the world, and Icelandic has therefore no contact with other languages as English or far eastern languages as Farsi or Urdu. Icelandic is a complicated language, and has many more letters than English, for example.

The alphabeth

This is the Icelandic alphabeth: A Á B (C) D Ð E É F G H I Í J K L M N O Ó P (Q) R S T U Ú V (W) X Y Ý (Z) Þ Æ Ö

The letter Ð (ð) was also used in Old English and Norwegian, but today it's only in use in Icelandic. The letter represent the th-sound (like in the and them).
