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.
