country that busted its' ass to raise troops in both world wars, supply universal health care, and somehow remain statistically the safest country on Earth to live in.
Canada is a great country and I plan on moving there as soon as I can.

A fine, respectable nation. What America should be, but really isn't. Much more diverse and cultivated than most give them credit for, and much more liberal on topics such as narcotics and marriage. Most of the country is unihabitable, and the winters can be excruciatingly cold, but British Columbia is fairly temperate. This wondrous province is sort of like Washington State and Colorado rolled into one. Toronto and Montreal are the major cultural hubs and the people live in harmony. Racism and crime is virtually nonexistant and the people are proud and progressive. However, taxes and gasoline aren't cheap so any potential American defectors, be warned. The U.S. should take some notes and try to emulate the Canadian culture.
The bickering between Canada and the U.S. is pointless. Both countries have their problems and are aware of it, but as neighbors we should stick together and help each other out.

Large country occupying the northern portion of North America.
The name Canada came from a mis-translation by early explorers of a native word meaning Village.
Large in size but sparsely populated, the country was an integral ally player in WW2, however most of it's forces were decomissioned when hostilities ceased. Canada contributed many very skilled troops and pilots for the european campaign, and were pivotal in the European beach landings.
Economically, Canada contibutes vast amounts of raw resources not least of which are energy products. Northern Alberta has vast oilsands deposits that may contain as much oil as the middle east, and are mostly untapped, meaning there will still be lots of oil, albeit fairly expensive, long after the wells run dry in Saudi Aribia.
Canada has some of the largest unspoiled forrests left in the world.
Canada's primary trading partner is the USA, which shares the longest ungaurded border (figuratively speaking)in the world.
To address all the flamers out there, Canadians and Americans for the most part like each other, except for an embarassingly high number of obnoxious loudmouths on either side of the border.
Explorer: What is this place?
Native: Kanta.
Explorer: Canada, that's what this country is called.
Guide: I think he means the village.
Explorer: Nope, pretty sure he means the country. This place is called Canada.

A wonderful country that has produced some very, very hot women such as Elisha Cuthbert and Pamela Anderson. Also I spent two weeks there and only heard one "ey."
Damn, why are Canadians so fine, eh?

The largest and lonliest country in the world. Very cold in winter and very hot in summer (depending on where you live--like I said, it's big: one of our provinces is bigger than Europe).
We don't have interesting accents: most people think Canadians sound like Californians, but nobody knows why. We invented basketball and snowmobiles; we have a lot of rocks, trees and maple syrup.
A lot of Canadians like hockey even though lacrosse is the national sport.
And hey--we don't live in igloos. Seriously.
Canada almost never has wars (except sometimes when we help out the US). We like to keep the peace.
It's a bit boring but not a bad place to live.

Not to be confused with America.

And yes, we do have polar bears and Artic tundra and the North Pole around here somewhere. It's exciting, I know.
Canadian: I'm from Ontario
Foreigner: ...
Canadian: It's part of Canada.
Foreigner: Right! So do you know Avril Lavigne?
Canadian: No.
Foreigner: What about Bob, do you know--
Canadian: No. It's a big country.

Aside from being a country (obviously) and America's hat, Canada is a character from the anime Hetalia. He has a pet polar bear that he can't remember the name of. (Its name is Kumajiro.) Everyone either confuses him for America, can't see him, or doesn't know who he is.
Kumajiro: Who are you?
Canada: I'm Canada.


England: Hey, America, about those war plans...
Canada: Um, sorry, but I'm not America.


Canada: *running into a G8 meeting* Sorry I'm late!
Japan: Oh, it's fine. We've...all been waiting for you...
Everyone: Who is this guy?
