The Danes (as the Vikings were usually known at the time) struck terror into much of Northern Europe from the 9th to the 11th centuries, but since then, Denmark has generally been content to trade peacefully, barring the odd scuffle with their neighbor and nemesis, Sweden. For a while during the 15th century, the Union of Kalmar united Denmark, UsefulNotes/{{Norway}} and Sweden under one king, but it couldn't last. Sweden left and Norway decided to join Denmark properly, before gaining its independence in the 19th century.

Denmark is made up of a peninsula (Jutland, or Jylland to the Danes), and a whole bunch of islands. The biggest island is Zealand (Sjælland), on which stands Copenhagen. The country is notable for its flatness; average elevation stands at 34 m, just piggybacking the Netherlands (which goes with the absolutely abysmal 30 m), while the highest point in the country itself is a ''television tower'' called [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/d/d9/Vordingborg_mast.jpg the Rø Transmitter]], which stands on a hill giving it a 431.3 m height, while the highest natural point is a hill called [[http://www.livespanske.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/mollehoj.jpg Møllehøj]] (170.86 m), with a millstone marking it for good measure. The "mountainous Scandinavia" that most people associate when they think about the region actually characterizes Norway and the Lapland parts of Sweden and Finland better. So, if you ever see any [[Film/{{Beowulf 2007}} film depicting Denmark with mountains, waterfalls, boreal forests, and the like]], suffice to say you've been lied to.

A democratic constitutional monarchy, it is a member of UsefulNotes/{{NATO}} and UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion, but retains its own currency[[note]]Although a separate currency the krone is pegged to the Euro[[/note]]. In 1969 it became the first country in the world to legalise hardcore pornography, which contributed to attracting a certain kind of tourist.

Like the United Kingdom, Denmark has the concept of constituent countries, which make up the much-larger "Kingdom of Denmark". Other than the continental part, the Kingdom includes the UsefulNotes/FaroeIslands and UsefulNotes/{{Greenland}}, both of which have received home rule and thus function as independent countries except in the matters of foreign affairs. It also formerly included Iceland until 1918 when it became a separate Kingdom with a shared royal house with Denmark (not unlike the Commonwealth), followed by a British/American invasion in 1940 to prevent it falling into German hands, and the creation of the current day Republic of UsefulNotes/{{Iceland}}.
