According to AFP, the survey was published today in Reykjavik, where the Nordic Council’s Annual Session is currently taking place.

42 percent of respondents answered positively when they were asked if they agree Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland should have one leader, the same foreign policy, as well as a common legal system.

The five countries, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland, could form a state with a population of 25 million and would be the tenth largest world economic power if they join forces.

The idea of the Nordic Federation has appeared in recent years to give Denmark, Sweden and Finland more power in the European Union.

The poll was conducted between 22 and 27 October on a sample group of 1032 people: 302 in Sweden, 201 in Finland, 200 in Norway and Denmark, and 129 in Iceland.
