    a| Annotation b| With just 330 000 people dotted over a land mass of 103 000 square kilometres, Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. In addition to having one of the highest life satisfaction ratings of all OECD countries, Iceland also boasts the highest employment rate. While Iceland still has a lower gross national income per capita than other Nordic countries (USD 46 606), wage growth is in double digits and the income inequality gap is the narrowest of all OECD countries. Iceland's economy is driven by the aluminium and fisheries industries and - increasingly - by tourism. Agriculture remains a key source of employment, accounting for 7% of gross domestic product, with dairy and sheep meat being the most important products. Following the 2008-2011 financial and banking crisis, the economy is now booming, with an expected growth rate of around 5% in 2016, which is faster than any other OECD country. Inflation is low, at around 2% in 2016, and has been held down by exchange rate appreciation. The economy has also been helped by falling energy prices: about 85% of Iceland's total primary energy supply is derived domestically from renewable sources, making Iceland the world's largest "green" energy and electricity producer per capita. However, underlying inflationary pressures are high and monetary policy remains tight, which may slow growth in 2017. Key risks in the long term include overheating of the economy, low productivity, and high debt.
