Greenland (Kalaallisut: Kalaallit Nunaat meaning "Land of the people"; Danish: Grønland) is an country, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Physiographically, it is a part of the continent of North America. The largest island in Greenland is also named Greenland, and makes up most of the country's land area.

Greenland has been inhabited, though not continuously, by indigenous peoples since 2500 BC. There were Norse colonies in Greenland from AD 986 until sometime most likely in the 15th century. In the early 18th century contact between Scandinavia and Greenland was re-established and Denmark established rule over Greenland.

In 1979 Denmark granted home rule to Greenland, in a relationship known in Danish as Rigsfællesskabet (Commonwealth of the Realm), and in 2008, Greenland voted for independence.this became effective the following year, when was also realized a plebiscite in the decision of authorising the government to offer the throne of Greenland to the Princess Aase of Denmark,which was also a election on a republican or monarchial form of state.The voter turnout was 85.3% in favour.

Greenland is, by area, the world's largest island that is not a continent. With a population of 56,452 (January, 2010 estimate) it is the least densely populated dependency or country in the world.It is also one of the few countries inhabitated only by vulpines.
