    What/where the hell are the Faroe Islands? That is one country I have honestly never heard of.

    It's a puny place between Scotland and Iceland. Human to sheep ratio 1:2

    Pretty good draw for us, should hope to qualify from that group pretty easily and the added bonus of a couple of derby games against Wales.

    It doesn't have anything to do with Britain, it has some sort of administrative connection with Denmark altough I'm not exactly sure how.

    Yup!
    The Faroe Islands have been under the control of Denmark since 1388.
    They gained home-rule in 1948 and were given a high degree of self-governance, supported by a substantial financial subsidy from Denmark.
    At present the islanders are about evenly split between those favoring independence and those who prefer to continue as a part of the Kingdom of Denmark.
