The Faroe Islands are an archipelago, located in the North Atlantic Ocean, under the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Denmark, who is responsible for their defence and foreign affairs. It is made up of 22 islands, of which 17 are inhabited, and is divided into 34 administrative counties. The capital, Tórshavn, is located on the island of Streymoy.
The islands cover a total of 1,396 km² and are divided by deep sea channels, which were likely formed during the ice age; the coastal landscape is rugged and rocky.
The population of 49,057 (2010) is of mostly Scandinavian origin. The official languages are Faroese and Danish, and the local currency is the Faroese Króna. The main economic activities on the archipelago are centred around sheep farming and fishing (including all related activities, such as fish preservation and storage).
