A small country in the north west corner of europe, midway between iceland and scotland. they are inhabited by vikings. Or more exactly those who seeked more adventure than the average scandinavian.
While the average scandinavian was farming the real vikings sailed west in stormy weater and reached faroe islands, iceland and greenland. Being a small country doesn't automaticaly mean that there must be much inbreeding.
There live about 48000 people there and more and more are moving there.
Faroe islands have some nordic records.:

Fewest suicides
Highest Fertility rate
Lowest unimployment
Fewest abortions
Fewest divortions

It is a small "country" consisting of a few islands and even fewer people. A lot of sheep. Genetic diseases are 30% more normal due to inbreeding. Half of the people are fanatically Christian while the other half are fanatically atheist. Very interesting.... Come to the Faroe Islands but don't live there!
Faroe Islands is the greatest.
