Well, it is an expensive country, although the qualilty of life is excellent. It was invaded during WW2, and island Jan Mayen was in fact the only part of Norway which remained free from the nazi invasion.
It is considered part of Scandinavia along with Sweden and Denmark.
It is a monarchy.
It was aligned to the USA during the Cold War. (Sweden, Finland and maybe Denmark remained neutral).
Its shoreline is full of fjords.
Above 60° North it remains dark for around 6 months and sunlit for the other 6 months.
AFAIK, most Norwegians are christians.

My family is originally from there. Capital is Oslo, Norwegian Sea, North Sea and Barents Sea surround it, shares its border with Sweden...a neutral country during WW1, occupied by Germans. Vast mythology that is so fun to read. Vikings, discovery of America before Columbus...
The people? There are lots of different looks, but I guess the stereotype looks like me, tall, blonde hair, blue eyes, larger bone structure. Other then that, healthy, long life span, hard working...
I'm sure there's more but that's all I have time for. Good luck to you
