An island country just south of the artic Circle in the north-east Atlantic Ocean.

It is approximately 460 km (285 miles) long by 280 km (174 miles) wide; but only its coastal areas can be used for settlement and agriculture because the rest is a wasteland of ice, ash, and the lava flows. It lies at the edge of the Eurasian plate, on the Mid-Atlantic ridge. A hundred volcanoes rise from it, several over 1,500m (5,000 feet), and there are Gesyers and Hot springs. The climate is ameliorated by the North Atlantic Drift.
