  1. The country has no official motto, but the oath from the 1814 Norwegian Constituent Assembly can be regarded as the closest unofficial equivalent:
    Enige og tro inntil Dovre faller  (Bokmål)
    Einige og tru inntil Dovre fell  (Nynorsk)
    "United and loyal until Dovre falls"
  2. Does not include Svalbard and Jan Mayen. (With the territories, it is the 67th largest country at 385,207[8] square kilometers)
  3. This percentage is for the mainland, Svalbard, and Jan Mayen. This percentage counts glaciers as "land". It's calculated as 19,940.14/(365,246.17+19,940.14).[citation needed]
  4. Two more TLDs have been assigned, but are not used: .sj for Svalbard and Jan Mayen; .bv for Bouvet Island.
