   Until 1953, Greenland was a Danish colony. It is still part of the Kingdom of Denmark but it has its own extensive local government and is not part of the European Union (unlike Denmark). Due to being part of Denmark, the vast majority of the inhabitants had Danish citizenship in 2018, amounting to approximately 54 thousand.  


  Greenland is organized in five administrative divisions. The capital Nuuk is in Kommuneqarfik Sermersooq, a municipality located on the coast in West and East Greenland. In 2018, more than 22 thousand inhabitants lived in this municipality, making this Greenland’s most populated municipality.
