The country of Iceland has been struggling the last few months financially, and is currently suffering from one of the worst financial situations in the country's history. Sounds kind of familiar actually right? But in any event, the Scandinavian countries of Denmark, Norway and Sweden have offered Iceland the much needed financial relief that they currently need.
