O Canada...

Canada is a Federal Parliamentry Democracy located in the nothern half of North America. Canada was originally colonized by the French, but was annexed by the British during the Seven Years War and gained self governence as a commonwealth realm with the BNA act of 1867. Canada is geographically large (a total area of 9,984,670 km2 which makes it second only to the Russian Federation in area) and resource rich, but is also a very cold region and as such is sparsely populated (Population of 34.699 million as of 2011). Despite this, Canada is (for its size) a wealthy nation which maintains reletively good relationships with the rest of the developed world. Canada has close ties with the United States (which it shares a boarder) and the United Kingdom (being a commonwealth realm). Politically Canada is moderatly left wing, even with the conservative party government of PM Stephen Harper.

The Currency of Canada is the Canadian Dollar (CND).
