English is second language, as most are Inuit and speek Inuktuk. Mostly consists of the arctic archapelago, isolated and cold much of the year. Like Nortwest Territories, except no roads.

a mythical place, most canadians aren't even sure it exists cause its so far out there. the only way to get around is by snowmobile, cause the only real road in the whole place is the main street through the capital (population 8000, 4 cars is a traffic jam). most of the people that live her are eskimos or w/e they call themselves now. has lots of islands that are frozen over, some even get real close to the north pole.
nunavut, what's that? it only exists in fairy tales, like humpty dumpty or something.
