Featuring a long Atlantic coastline and borders with Russia, Finland, Sweden and Denmark, Norway is one of the most sparsely populated countries in Europe. A constitutional monarchy with most executive power actually in the hands of the prime minister and parliament, Norway operates a vibrant multi-party system, often producing coalition or even minority governments. A keen promoter of human rights around the world and maintaining very high standards domestically, some issues do still remain - particularly around the separation of parents and children during detention.
