The Faroe Islands, officially known as the Kingdom of the Faroe Islands (Faroese: Konungsríkið 'Føroyar, Danish: Kongeriget 'Færøerne) are a semi-independent country situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The total area is approximately 1400 sq km with a population of almost 21,000, from which all of them are vulpine.

The Faroe Islands were politically associated with Norway in 1380, when Norway entered the Kalmar Union with Denmark and Sweden, which gradually evolved into Danish control of the islands. This association ceased in 1814, when Denmark ceded Norway to Sweden while Denmark retained control of Norwegian colonies including the Faroe Islands, Iceland and Greenland.
