    Russia

    USA

    Canada

    Denmark (Greenland & Fareo Islands)

    Iceland

    Norway

    Sweden

    Finland.

    Argentina.

    Australia.

    Chile.

    France.

    New Zealand.

    United Kingdom.

    You actually have 3 different questions here. I'm not even sure there is enough space to list the Tropical countries as well, but I'll try.
