The international banking crisis which climaxed in 2008 hit the island nation of Iceland harder than any other country.  The EU member bailout of IceSave Bank left the 325,000 Icelandic residents with a whopping burden of $5.3 billion.

Home defauls, business failures and general economic chaos has been felt by every resident – and despair has turned into anger on all sides.

Iceland residents will vote this week whether they will opt to pay back these amounts to the EU nation which bailed them out, or default on the obligations.  Recent polls show a 60% disapproval rate of paying back these amounts.
