What is the least densely populated country in the world?
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.
