I've lived both in the Norway, and now in the US, and I don't think Norway's 90% is all that surprising. Next time Norway fights a war, you can bet it will be for something worth fighting for. The US, on the other hand, fights some dumb wars (like Iraq), so I understand only 78% saying they'd fight for their country.
