From east to west, Canada encompasses six time zones. In addition to its coastlines on the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, Canada has a third sea coast on the Arctic Ocean, giving it the longest coastline of any country. To the south, Canada shares an 8 891 kilometre boundary with the United States. To the north, the Arctic islands come within 800 kilometres of the North Pole. Canada's neighbour across the Arctic Ocean is Russia. Because of the harsh northern climate, only 12 percent of the land is suitable for agriculture. Thus, most of the population of 30 million live within a few hundred kilometres of the southern border, where the climate is milder, in a long thin band stretching between the Atlantic and the Pacific oceans ... more Canada's terrain incorporates a number of mountain ranges: the Torngats, Appalachians and Laurentians in the east; the Rocky, Coastal and Mackenzie ranges in the west; and Mount St. Elias and the Pelly Mountains in the north. At 5 959 metres, Mount Logan in the Yukon is Canada's tallest peak.

It lies off the east coast of the Asian continent. The total land area as of October 1989 was 377.688 square kilometers. The four major islands of Japan are Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu. Claimed by the Japanese, the northernmost islands of Kunashiri (Kunashir), Etorofu (Iturup), the Habomai Islands, and Shikotan were occupied by the Soviet Union at the end of World War II and were still occupied by the Russian Federation. The Ogasawara Islands and Okinawa Islands, under American rule after World War II, were returned to Japan in 1968 and 1972, respectively. The areas of the main geographical divisions of Japan (including offshore islands under their administrative control) are as follows: Hokkaido (83520 km2); Honshu (230940 km2); Shikoku (18808 km2); Kyushu (42164 km2); Okinawa Prefecture (2256 km2). Total area of Japan is 377688 km2. Administrative structure After the Meiji Restoration (1868), the country was administratively reorganized into the prefectural system. Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto were made fu (urban prefectures) in 1871., and the rest of the country was divided into 302 ken (prefectures). By 1888, this system had been integrated into a system of 3 fu and 43 ken. Hokkaido was initially administered directly by the central government but later came to be treated equally with other prefectures, although it was called a do (circuit), rather than a ken. In 1943, Tokyo Fu was designated as a special administrative area and named Tokyo To (officially translated as Tokyo Metropolis). At present, Japan is administratively divided into 1 to (Tokyo To), 1 do (Hokkaido), 2 fu (Osaka Fu and Kyoto Fu), and 43 ken.

Extractions: The Republic of Montenegro Serbian Crna Gora , meaning "black mountain") is a small, mountainous republic in the Balkans , on the Adriatic Sea . According to its constitution, it is a democratic, social, and ecological state. Throughout a number of centuries Montenegro was a de facto independent principality ruled by a succession of dynasties and rulers. The country obtained de jure international recognition of its independence, following the Eastern Crisis (
Extractions: Source: The Library of Congress Country Studies The zupan of Raska, Stefan I Nemanja (1159-96), threw off Byzantine domination and laid the foundation for medieval Serbia by conquering Zeta and part of southern Dalmatia. His son and successor, Stefan II Nemanja (1196-1228) transformed Serbia into a stable state, friendly with Rome but with religious loyalty to Constantinople. In 1218 Pope Honorius III recognized Serbian political independence and crowned Stefan II. The writings of Stefan II and his brother (later canonized as St. Sava) were the first works of Serbian literature. Later kings in the Nemanja line overcame internal rivalries and pressure from Bulgaria and Constantinople. They also rejected papal invitations to link the Serbian Orthodox Church with Rome, and they ruled their country through a golden age. Serbia expanded its economy, and Dalmatian merchants marketed Serbian goods throughout Europe and the Levant. The Nemanje dynasty left to Serbia masterpieces of religious art combining Western, Byzantine, and local styles. Serbia dominated the Balkans under Stefan Dusan (1331-55), who conquered lands extending from Belgrade to present-day southern Greece. He proclaimed himself emperor, elevated the archbishop of Pec to the level of patriarch, and wrote a new legal code combining Byzantine law with Serbian customs. Dusan had ambitions toward a weakened Byzantine Empire, but the Byzantine emperor suspected his intentions and summoned the Turks to restrain him. Dusan repelled assaults in 1345 and 1349, but was defeated in 1352. He then offered to lead an alliance against the Turks and recognize the pope, but those gambits also were rejected.
Extractions: Source: The Library of Congress Country Studies Serbian victories and the Serbians' obvious contempt for Austria-Hungary brought hostility from Vienna and anti-Habsburg sentiment in all the empire's South Slavic regions, especially Bosnia and Hercegovina. Confident behind German military protection, the high command of Austria-Hungary lobbied for war to eliminate Serbia. Serbia's alliance with Slavic Russia also encouraged the growth of expansionist, nationalist secret societies in the Serbian army. The most significant of these societies was the Black Hand, a group of army officers who dominated the army and influenced the government from 1911-17. In 1914 Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Habsburg throne and a longtime advocate of equality for the South Slavs in the empire, made an ill-prepared visit to Bosnia. On Vidovdan, Bosnian student Gavrilo Princip assassinated the archduke and the archduchess in Sarajevo. The Black Hand had armed and trained the assassin, but historians doubt that the rulers of Serbia had approved the plot. Nevertheless, on July 23 Austria-Hungary sent an ultimatum, threatening war unless Serbia allowed Vienna to join the murder investigation and suppress secret societies. Even the German kaiser felt that Serbia met the Austrian demands, but war was declared, the existing alliance structure of Europe went into force, and World War I began. The Central PowersGermany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkeyfaced the Triple EntenteFrance, Britain, and Russia. The Croats, Slovenes, and many Serbs in Austria-Hungary went to war against Serbia and Montenegro.
