    I've been to Norway.

    Fact is, it's a really nice place.  Expensive, but nice.

    Norway's lower population is PLANNED.  Anyone can immigrate to Norway...IF you have a college degree. 

    They have no welfare system.  You have prove that you be a contributing member of society or you're not getting in.

    Yes, Germany has always been heavily populated.  They have a large industrial area. 

    I don't recall the year, but one time 10,000 Germans emigrated to Spain.  In the 1500s, King Charles I of Spain, the grandson of Ferdinand and Isabella, was also the Holy Roan Emperor Charles V of Germany.  He spent most of his time fighting against the Turks attacking Europe from the east and dealing with Martin Luther.

    When Spain explored the New World they were accompanied by many Germans. 

    Believe it or not, there are a lot of Mexicans who have German last names including one being "German".  Oddly, none are named "Deutsch" ("German" in German), at least not that I have been able to find.

    Germany is 14th most densely populated in Europe, Norway is 2nd to last.

    Population density is relative to factors like religion, geography, culture etc. People write books on stuff like that.

    Germany is not that heavily populated - a third of the country is still forest.

    A lot has to to do with terrain and climate - Norway can be a challenging place to live.
