"Denmark is in Northern Europe, bordered primarily by the Baltic Sea and North Sea. It consists of the peninsula of Jutland, north of Germany, and close to 406 islands, about 80 of which are inhabited. The most populated and largest of the islands is Zealand, where the country's capital can be found; Funen; and Jutland. Denmark occupies 43,094 square kilometers (16,621 square miles), a little less than twice the size of Massachusetts. Germany shares 68 kilometers (42 miles) of border with Denmark, and the other 7,314 kilometers (4,545 miles) is coastline. In 1 July 2000, the Øresund Bridge was completed, connecting Denmark and southern Sweden.

The Danish National Anthem.

There is a lovely country
it stands with broad beech
near [the] salty eastern beach [Salten Østerstand]
It winds itself in hill, valley,
it's called old Denmark
and it is Freja hall

There was in ancient times
the armorsuited figthers
rested from conflict
So they set out for the foe,
Now rest their bones
behind the mounds monoliths

This country is still lovely,
because blue is the lake wind,
and the foliage is so green
And noble women, beautiful maidens
and men and lads
inhabit the Danish isles

Hail king and mother country!
Hail every Danne citizen,
who service as best he can!
Our old Denmark must endure,
as long beech reflects
its top in the oceans blue
