Greenland is not a sovereign nation, but an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. In November in 2008, Greenland passed a referendum on greater autonomy with the blessing of the Danish government. On June 21, 2009, Greenland formally adopted greater autonomy with international agreement. Although Greenland still relies on Denmark for finances and military defense, Greenland has taken over control of most other matters. This presents the possibility of full independence, and ultimately membership in the United Nations.
