Greenland, a massive island and autonomous Danish territory between the North Atlantic and Arctic oceans, is about 80% covered in ice. Most of its small population lives along the ice-free, fjord-lined coast, particularly in the southwest. Its northerly position, largely above the Arctic Circle, results in natural phenomena such as summer’s midnight sun and winter’s Northern Lights.Capital: NuukArea: 2.166 million km²Population: 56,483 (2013) World BankContinent: North AmericaCurrency: Danish kroneOfficial language: Greenlandic
