Basic facts about Iceland

I think its important to give some basic facts about Iceland.  To you the reader a better feel about the country. It seems to me a lot of people don't have any  basic knowledge about Iceland, besides that its really cold.
Iceland's capital is Reykjavik, with around 120.000 inhabitants, it also happens to be the northern most capital in the world. Iceland its self has a little over 325.000 inhabitants making Reykjavik its primate city.  it boast as being on of the oldest democracies in the world. It is constitutional  parliamentarian democracy.  The Mean language is Icelandic, most of people speak very good English, but with a very thick accent that sometimes can be hard to understand. I only encountered one person who did not know English. But that is few and far between. Iceland national animal is the Puffin a sea going bird who only comes to shore during mating season. As well as to have its young. Even dough Iceland is very gifted naturally it has very few animals that live on the island do to the island not have  abounded vegetation.  The currency is Isk which stands for Icelandic Krona.
Iceland is also one of the safest countries in the world. The crime rate is non existent. All in all Iceland is a really cool country to visit.
