Denmark is a country located in Northern Europe. Greenland is also the part of Denmark, which is not geographically connected to the original Denmark. The official language is Danish, as well as German. Ethnically 86% Danish. 75% are Christians, 19% are non-believers and 4.4% are Muslims.

In addition, Greenland covers an area of ​​21,66,086 square kilometers and has a population of about 56,000.

If you think that the constitutions of European countries means that any constitution will have provisions with the guarantee of human rights and ensuring welfare state, then you are making mistake. There are a few important provisions, the most notable of which are - the right to security in one's own dwelling, the right to privacy in communication, the right to conditional assistance in case of disability, the right to establish non-violent organizations, the right to assemble without prior announcement, etc.

These are positive aspects. Now let's discuss the negative aspects.

Denmark is a democratic state. However, decorative monarchy is prevalent here, which is ridiculous and strange compared to the present century. Despite being a country in Europe, Denmark is not secular. The state has a constitutional obligation to establish Church. The king must be a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church. He can't be a Hindu, Buddhist, Muslim or atheist.
