Iceland is about 40 thousand square miles. (103,000 m2) The population of Iceland is about 364,260 thousand people (Jan.1st. 2020). Of these about 208,500 people work and pay taxes, taxes that pay for all the infrastructure in the country. Infrastructure that would be sufficient for over 5 million people.
Another thing that makes many things expensive is that Iceland is an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean. Half of the food is imported and also most other things like clothing, electrical equipment and cars, to name a few.
Still another thing is the building code. Iceland is a very volcanic island with many earthquakes, even many every week. Most of them are small and don't bother anyone, but buildings have to tolerate this and are therefore expensive.
And the climate is such that everyone needs access to good housing and good clothing.
