Being an autonomous country within the Danish Realm, Greenland is situated between Atlantic and the Arctic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago.

Geographically it's a part of North America, but culturally and politically Greenland has been associated with Europe for thousands of years now. 8 years ago, a referendum supporting greater autonomy of Greenland was held; 75% of votes were in favor.

Greenland is the largest island in the world. It is the only island on which over 3/4 of the area is covered by ice sheet, except Antarctica. Considering the area of this country and a population of about 56 thousand, it is the least densely populated country in the world.
