Danes rarely refer to Danishness, a term used for the first time in 1836, but that term has been a hotly debated topic since the increase of immigration in the 1960s and Denmark's affiliation with the European Union (EU) in 1972.
The country covers approximately 16,634 square miles (43,095 square kilometers).After centuries of sovereign rule by the king, the first common constitution was completed and signed in 1849, initiating a government with an assembly consisting of a lower house ( Folketing ) and upper house ( Landsting ).The making of a common constitution was an important element in the nineteenth century's political emphasis on the formation of nationhood. Beer, allotment gardens, the flag, the national anthem, democracy, Christmas, folk high schools, personal well-being, and coziness are some of the elements of the national culture, but questions of how the cultural heritage can survive and what it is emphasize the fact that Denmark is a nation of cultural borrowers. The name of the country means "Borderlands of the Danes" in reference to a political unit created during the sixth through ninth centuries.This period was marked by a slow progression of sovereignty among the Danes, a people who originated in Skaane (today the southern part of Sweden) but eventually were based in Jutland.Within a span of one-hundred fifty years, Denmark changed from an agricultural to an industrialized society.
In the late nineteenth century, two-thirds of the population lived in rural areas and engaged in agriculture; today, only 15 percent live in rural areas, and many of those people have city jobs.
Infant mortality, epidemics, war and emigration, better hygiene, food, and housing influenced population changes.
The population increased from 2.5 to 5.3 million during the twentieth century, showing an interdependency between decline in population growth and industrialization, with the average number of children per woman decreasing from 4 to 1.5.
Roughly eighty of its more than four hundred islands are inhabited.
Jutland, Zealand, and Funen (Fyn) are the largest and most densely populated regions.
Denmark is a small nation whose cultural unity is mitigated by regional traditions of rural, urban, and island communities with distinctions based on local language, food, and history.
