10. Nordic Countries

Scandinavia consists of three countries: Denmark, Norway, and Sweden. Finland and Iceland are sometimes mentioned in that group, but they are more correctly placed in the Nordics or the Nordic countries, which include the Faroe Islands and Greenland, which are both governed by Denmark.
