Denmark is a country in Northern Europe with a population of 5.7 million. It is the most southern of the Nordic countries that constitute Scandinavia, located southwest of Sweden, south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany. The country of Denmark is characterized by flat, arable land, sandy coasts, low elevation and a temperate climate with warm Summers and mild Winters.

The incipient urbanisation of Denmark began in the early Viking Ages from around 700 AD, and The Kingdom of Denmark is now a sovereign state that comprises Denmark and two autonomous constituent countries in the North Atlantic Ocean: the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The country consists of a main peninsula, Jutland (Jylland), and the Danish archipelago of 443 named islands of which around 70 are inhabited. The largest of the islands are Zealand (Sjælland), where the Danish capital, Copenhagen (København), is located and Funen (Fyn).
Even though Denmark is home to one of the world's oldest monarchies, which can be traced back to the year 958 AD, the country has a parliamentary democracy. It has the world's highest level of income equality with a mixed market economy and a large welfare state.
