The Nordic countries

The Nordic countries consists of historical territories of the Scandinavian countries, areas that share a common history and culture with Scandinavia. It is meant unambiguously to refer to this larger group, since the term Scandinavia is narrower and sometimes ambiguous. The Nordic countries are generally considered to unambiguously refer to Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden, including their associated territories (Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and the Åland Islands).

The term is derived indirectly from the local term Norden, used in the Scandinavian languages, which literally means “The North(ern lands)”.Unlike the Nordic countries, the term Norden is in the singular. The demonym is nordbo, literally meaning “northern dweller”.
