After their financial crisis, Iceland fined the banks and put many of the responsible bankers in prison. Their presidential election is four months away and five candidates have stepped forward so far - not a professional politician in the bunch:
Ari Jósepsson, video blogger
Ástþór Magnússon, entrepreneur
Elísabet Jökulsdóttir, writer
Hildur Þórðardóttir, ethnographer
Þorgrímur Þráinsson, writer
I'm assuming writer means writer as opposed to the US politician/celebrity practice of engaging a ghost writer...
