Norway: Thorough transparency regulations

Norway is a constitutional monarchy with highly regulated transparency rights, rooted in the Norwegian constitution.

Norway has a royal family, Stortinget - the national parliament and Sametinget, the parliament of the Sami minority in the northern part of the country. there are 19 counties(Norwegian = fylke) and 433 local municipalities (Norwegian = kommune). A general overview over all public authorities is provided in English,  Norwegian and Sami.

Transparency is guaranteed through the constitution, and regulated through a number of laws and regulations, among them a regulation about access to electronic files and one about access to information in the parliament, se the law-page.
