Denmark is a European country that currently owns Greenland. Denmark gained Greenland in the 1800s. However, Greenland rules itself. Beginning in the late 1970s, Greenland was allowed to govern itself. Comparing the two countries, Denmark has a far larger population than Greenland. Denmark has about 5.5 million and Greenland has about 50,000.

Greenland and Denmark are located quite a bit apart with Greenland being further north than Denmark. Denmark acquired the largest island in the world along with a group of islands known as Faroe Islands. Due to Greenland’s location, it is much icier than Denmark. Greenland’s economy includes fishing. Before Denmark got Greenland, Norway had ruled Greenland and the islands for hundreds of years. Denmark’s government is a constitutional monarchy.
