Nationen is a Norwegian daily newspaper (except Sundays), founded in 1918.[1] It has a circulation of approximately 14,000 and primarily targets farmers and the agriarian sector, with focus on district politics, farming, commentaries and features. It is based in Oslo, with offices in Trondheim and Fagernes, and edited by Mari Velsand. The newspaper relies heavily on freelance journalists for regional coverage.

Traditionally the newspaper has been controlled by the Centre Party, but they have since sold out, and the newspaper is today owned by Tun Media that is controlled by the Norwegian Agrarian Association, TINE, Nortura and Landkreditt.[1] The media group also owns other publications.

The newspaper has had a tabloid format since 1986. An online version, nationen.no, was formally launched in 2001.[1]
