In what ways does Norway have a much better deal than the UK?

Starting with EU immigration for example; what is advantageous about Norways position?

Doesn't seem to be doing too badly, carving out a 15-year 'career' as an MEP, and managing to get away with doing bugger all once there. No flies on our Nige.
