1. Overview

#norway

First discovered by the Norwegians in the 12th century, the islands served as an international whaling base during the 17th and 18th centuries. Norway's sovereignty was recognized in 1920; five years later it officially took over the territory.

2. Svalbard National and Social Development

My Social and Moral Development Index does not have enough data points for Svalbard to produce an accurate ranking. As a territory of Norway I do not have many specific statistics for this territory in its own right.
