Canada is the second largest country in the world by area. Compared to other countries its population (35 million people) is rather modest at best, boasting a population density of only 3.5 people per square kilometre (the UK squeezes 255 people into the same space). The provinces and territories maintain a friendly rivalry, usually resorting to snide jokes and [[UsefulNotes/CanadianFootballLeague CFL]] playoffs. Why is it like this? Mainly because of the confusing origins and exacerbated regional differences. That said, Canada is still a unified country, and the rivalry that goes on is similar to that of any country.

Three of the most memorable moments to most Canadians in their history include: the WarOf1812 in which a fledgling colony was defended from the invading southern forces; [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI the 1917 Battle of Vimy Ridge]] in which the outstanding logsitician and professional engineer General Arthur William Currie (equal only to the Australian General and Civil Engineer John Monash) captured a godforsaken ridge from the Germans and successfully held it against counter-attack; and finally, Game 8, 1972, Canada v. Soviet Union[[note]][[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Henderson SCORES!!!]][[/note]].

!!Tropes regarding Canada

* UsefulNotes/TheBritishEmpire[=/=]UsefulNotes/TheCommonwealthOfNations: Canada is part of this.
* CanadianEqualsHockeyFan
* GoodBadTranslation: According to legend, when Jaques Cartier asked the Huron-Iroquois people where he was, they replied that they were taking him to "kanata", meaning "the village". He interpreted it as "we are in the nation of Kanata". So he wrote "Canada" on all the maps.
* MemeticMutation:
** "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_watch_me Just watch me]]." ~ Pierre Trudeau
** "The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation." ~ Also Pierre Trudeau
** " [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuddle_duddle Fuddle Duddle]]." Pierre Trudeau again
** "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/You_had_an_option,_sir You had an option, sir.]]" ~ Brian Mulroney
** "Conscription if necessary but not necessarily conscription." ~ William Lyon Mackenzie King
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ddPhG6EAOo They're going home!]]" ~ Bob Cole
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aX6XMIldkRU A proof is a proof. What kind of a proof? It's a proof. A proof is a proof. And when you have a good proof, it's because it's proven.]]" ~ Jean Chretien
** "[[http://archives.cbc.ca/sports/hockey/clips/2048/ He shoots, he scores!]]" ~ Foster Hewitt
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salmon_Arm Salmon Arm Salute]] ~ [[OverlyLongGag Pierre Trudeau once more for the road]]
** "Because it's 2015" ~ Justin Trudeau
* NationalStereotypes: Beer, bears, beavers, and lumberjacks are the biggest Canadian stereotypes. Moose, Mounties, modesty, maple syrup, and hockey cover the rest.
