Greenland (Kalaallisut: Kalaallit Nunaat meaning "Land of the Greenlanders"; Danish: Grønland) is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, east of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago. Physiographically, it is a part of the continent of North America. The largest island in Greenland is also named Greenland, and makes up most of the country's land area.

Recent authors state that no ants now live in Greenland, though there are fossil ants from northern Greenland (e.g., BENNIKE & BÖCHER 1990, HEINZE 1993, Wetterer, 2010).
