you literally didn't bring up any valid counter arguments. you did not grant norway independence because you were "kind". Norway had adopted a constitution which made it a semi-autonomous state from 1814 through 1905. When Norwegian parliament voted for dissolution. Legally Norway was it's own independent state, we had our own military, laws, flag and currency. By 1884 the norwegian storting had become so powerful that the swedish king could no longer appoint a norwegian government on his own. the dissolution would have come either way.
also average iq of norway is higher than sweden, google it ;)
also, you say we've not contributed anything of value to this world, we invented the aerosol spray can, skiing, the cheese slicer, paperclips, nitrogen fertilizer, the tripp trapp chair, and a norwegian partly invented the gas turbine.
England also had largely the same amount of oil norway did back when we found oil in the north sea. Norway earned so much from the oil because of smart spending, investing. while the British spent it all in a small period of time.
