The data, compiled by the World Bank and the Economist Intelligence Unit, shows Iceland as having 1.6 tractors per hectare of arable land. Slovenia is second on the list, followed by Japan, Switzerland and Austria.

According to The Economist, Iceland’s rocky terrain and lack of roads partly explains its position at the top spot.

The article states that Iceland “has a road density (quantity of road per land area) comparable to Kenya or Tanzania.”
