MUNDANE MYSTERIES: What country is the North Pole in?

Santa is busy up in the North Pole getting ready for his big trip next weekend. But where exactly is the North Pole? Which country?

Kind of a trick question since no country owns the North Pole currently. It actually exists in international waters. The closest land is the Canadian territory of Nunavut and Greenland (which is part of the Kingdom of Denmark).

The weird part is, Russia, Denmark and Canada have all claimed the Lomonosov Ridge which are a group of mountains that runs under the pole.

The actual North Pole doesn’t have any landmasses to it.  It’s only ice floating on water.

Interesting!
