Part of it is that I do have a Norwegian acquaintance (who is a lawyer) so I've been exposed to some of the thoughts.

Another part is just an educational issue (you get a lot of comparative law in various law school courses) and the fact that oil revenue sharing is a big political issue in Canada so generally if you follow it, you will be at least somewhat acquainted with the principles of oil revenues of (some) other countries as well.

We could need some Norwegians here, they could probably tell us a little bit more.

Being a Scandinavian country, the Norwegians I got to know are rather liberal, very down-to-earth people who take things rather easy. Their girls are beautiful, also an important factor, and it's not as cold as people would think.

Like Switzerland, they have very little interest in joining the EU, which I understand very well, and their standard of living is one of the highest in the world. So are their prices.
If you want to get drunk in Norway, better win the lottery beforehand.
It's population density is one of the lowest in the world, hence the township situation and the remote area policy questions.
Oil and tourism is, as far as I know, their main sources of income, alongside ship building.

In early 2007 the Norwegian government set the ambitious goal of becoming the first nation to even out their CO2 emissions.

That's what I can recall so far.

I love the cottage of my uncle's, no electricity, no running water, but the ski slope is just five minutes away.

By being fundamentally at odds with each of them on at least one key issue.

This is the point I was trying to make. In fact, this was going to be the next question I asked that would be ignored.

I think the test still is interesting for two reasons:

1) You get a small insight in what is of concern in Norway
2) You get a hint of what the parties in Norway stand for

Of course, not having the context to some questions and some background information it's not easy to answer certain questions, but, I mean, nothing will happen if we just make our cross where we like it to be.
