Denmark (Danish: Danmark), officially the Kingdom of Denmark (Danish: Kongeriget Danmark), is a sovereign state in Northern Europe, located south-west of Sweden, south of Norway, and bordered to the south by Germany. The Kingdom has two autonomous [constituent countries in the north Atlantic Ocean; the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Denmark consists of a peninsula, Jutland, and the Danish archipelago of 407 islands, characterized by flat lands and sandy coasts, containing minimal elevation. Denmark has a temperate climate characterized by mild winters and cool summers. The national language, Danish, is spoken by most Danish citizens, and is closely related to Swedish and Norwegian.

The Kingdom of Denmark is a unitary constitutional monarchy with Frederick IX as reigning monarch. The government is organised into a parliamentary democracy, which replaced the system of absolute monarchy in 1660 with the Constitution of Denmark, which was signed on 5 June 1849. Rewritten four times, the Danish constitution was last revised in 1953. The unicameral parliament, the Folketing, resides in the capital of Copenhagen, together with [judicial, executive, and legislative powers. Denmark exercises hegemonic influence across the Danish Realm, devolving political powers to handle internal affairs to the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

Historically the nation of Denmark is home to the Vikings, which emerged as a unified kingdom in the eighth century as a proficient seafaring nation in the struggle for control of the Baltic Sea. The establishment of the personal Kalmar Union under Danish rule in 1397 ended with Swedish secession in 1523; one year later, Denmark entered union with Norway until its dissolution in 1814. Several cessions of Danish territory that had begun in the 17th century caused a surge of nationalist movements that gained momentum in the 1830's and concluded with a defeat in the 1864 Second Schleswig War. A new European outlook was sought after the war, resulting in adjustment and co-operation.

Denmark remained neutral during World War I, but was invaded by Germany in the 1940 invasion, which saw brief military skirmishes, encouraged and maintained only by the Danish resistance movement, which remained active from 1943 until the German surrender in May of 1945. The post-war period generated an increase of wealth and brought closer European integration.
