People tend to always talk about the same popular countries, but there’s this one beautiful and forgotten one, Greenland, which I am going to talk about.
Greenland is an autonomous country within the Danish Realm, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Though being a part of North America, Greenland has been associated with Europe specifically with Norway and Denmark. Greenland is the world's largest non-continental island and the third largest country in North America.
There are approximately 700 known species of insects in Greenland, which is low compared with other countries. The sea is rich in fish and invertebrates. The few native land mammals in Greenland are the polar bear, arctic fox, reindeer, arctic hare, musk ox, collared lemming, ermine, and arctic wolf.
Greenland has a population of 56,370 people, of whom 88% are Greenlandic Inuit and the 12% are of European descent.Both languages Greenlandic and Danish have been used a lot there, so almost everyone speaks both. Kalaallisut (Greenlandic) is the official language.
Greenland has an Arctic climate with average temperatures that don't exceed 10° C in the warmest summer months. The air quality in Greenland is one of the bests in the world.
In the southern part of the country, however, the temperature can rise to more than 20° C in June, July or August.
Some curiosities about the country are that the whale along with the sale are both the national dish in Greenland because they both have lots of vitamins. Also Greenland’s got the highest suicide rate in the world by population and one of the highest alcohol intake.
