Located exactly on the meridian of Greenwich, between Norway and Iceland, 300 km south of the Arctic Circle, the Republic of Yukland (Yukkish: Điggsríkjeð Jœkklænds) is a harsh land, battered by strong winds and snow storms. But its people, descendant of Vikings, worked hard to build a rich an socially equalitarian nation. Nowadays, the country is one of the global leaders in the usage of wind energy to generate electricity. The Yukkish name of the country, Jœkklænd, means 'land of snow storms'.
