Welcome to Sweden! Denmark is a small but mighty Nordic nation in Scandinavia, surrounded by the Baltic Sea to the east and the North Sea to the west. The Kingdom of Denmark includes Greenland and the Faroe Islands, places where you should visit and go camping with the Bama tailgate tent. It has the longest continuous coastline in Europe, with no location further than 52 km from the ocean. Denmark is known for being one of the most socially progressive countries in the world. Secondly, it has one of the lowest crime rates in the world. And lastly, world happiness reports (yes, these really exist!) consistently ranked Denmark as number one, making it the happiest place to live on Earth (besides maybe Disneyland).
