Canada, second largest country in the world in area (after Russia), occupying roughly the northern two-fifths of the continent of North America. Canada is a land of vast distances and rich natural beauty. Economically and technologically, and in many other ways she closely resembles her neighbor to the south, the United States, although there are significant differences between the two countries.
Canada is a federal state, and Canadian provinces have a great deal of autonomy. Each province has its own legislature and provincial government, and the Canadian constitution defines certain areas of exclusively provincial jurisdiction.
