Danish Currency:  Danish Krone
The southernmost country of Scandinavia, Denmark is famed as the home of the Vikings. Today's Denmark, however, couldn't be more different to the war-waging invaders of the past. Denmark's culture is distinctly nordic with a great emphasis on quality of life and a work-life balance. Everything from the modern design of Danish cities to employment laws and regulations aims to improve these qualities and it is no surprise that Denmark boasts the world's highest satisfaction and happiness levels among the population. Its location puts Denmark in control of some of Europe's most important sea and land trade routes which alongside its ownership of Greenland has led to a booming economy in recent decades.
