Canada is a country in North America, located in the northern part of the continent. It stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, to the Pacific Ocean in the west, with the Arctic Ocean to the north. The whole of its southern border, over 8.000 km long, is shared with the United States.
It covers an enormous area of 9,984,670 km², stretching over 5 time zones with a vastly varied landscape: lowland regions and big mountain ranges (Rockies and Appalachians) in the east; the great lakes area, whose 5 freshwater basins make up a sort of inland sea between the US and Canada; the Canadian Shield; and the Saint Lawrence river, which runs for 1,200 km eastwards to its vast estuary on the Atlantic coast.
Canada is a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy, with the British monarch as its head of state. It is divided into 10 administrative provinces and 3 territories. Its total population is 33,476,688, according to 2011 estimates. The Canadian capital is Ottawa and the official languages are English and French. It is also a member of the following institutions: G7, G8, G20, NATO, NAFTA, OECD, WTO, OAC, APEC and UN.
Canada boasts a stable economic system, successful in every sector: from agriculture (a big wheat exporter) to manufacturing, as well as being one of the most important exporters of raw materials (gold, carbon, iron and other minerals essential to modern industrial development). The local currency is the Canadian Dollar.
