The Kingdom of Denmark is the smallest Nordic country, situated in Scandinavia, in northern Europe, bordering the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, on a peninsula and a number of islands north of Germany and Poland, southwest of Sweden and south of Norway.
The monarch is formally head of state, a role which is mainly ceremonial: Executive power is exercised by the cabinet ministers, with the prime minister as the first among equals (primus inter pares).
Danish is spoken in the entire country, although a small group near the German border speaks German.
