Norway was a country on Earth that was a particular love of its creator, the Magrathean Slartibartfast, who rhapsodises over its "lovely crinkly edges". For a time in the distant past, fjords were fashionable and he won an award for their design. Sadly, however, trends, even in planetary design, changed, and they fell out of favour.
During their trek away from the site of Golgafrinchan ark crash, Ford Prefect and Arthur Dent see Slartibartfast's likeness and signature carved into an ice wall in one of the fjords, making them realise that they are on prehistoric Earth.
