Introduction

The Kingdom of Denmark is a country located in Northern Europe. It is a Sandinavian, Nordic nation that consists of a peninsula and a lot of named islands that create the archipelago. The total land area of Denmark is only approximately 43,000 square kilometers. However, due to low population, Denmark isn't densely populated either. The kingdom has a monarch, namely Margrethe II. However, in most cases it is governed by Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen.

Economy

Contrary to what one could think, the GDP of Denmark is very low because it is around $350 billion. As a result, it gives them 14th place in the European Union. Although this value is very low for European standards, we should remember about the GDP per capita. In this case, Denmark is one of the best countries in Europe with the GDP per capita value of $60,100, according to data collected in 2019 by World Bank Data. It ranks them third in the ranking of GDP per capita ranking. 

Population

Even if we include the population from Faroe Islands and Greenland, Denmark is 114th in terms of population with a number of around 5.7 million. However, because of its very small land coverage, it is pretty densely populated (137 Danes per square kilometer).
