So you have it

Greenland apart, Russia still doesn't take the crown. Russia is 'only' -5.10C while Canada is -5.35C. I guess all those wastes in the north more than make up for the relatively hot weather you've experienced in Toronto.

Ok, I wasn't sure. Greenland's status seems odd to me. Autonomous but also part of Denmark? I'm not sure what that means.

What was the answer you were looking for? If Greenland didn't count I was going to go with Norway.

Canada with -5.35C. Then Russia with -5.10C. The only other country with a yearly average temperature below zero is Mongolia. Well, for those who didn't remember that Greenland is a country.
As for autonomous countries, aren't the First Nations in the USA a bit like that?

OK, here goes:

The lowest known place on earth is Challenger Deep, 11,034 m below sea level.
The lowest known point not covered by liquid water lies beneath Byrd Glacier in Antarctica, 2,780 m below sea level.
The lowest known point on dry land (not covered by ice) is approximately 418 m below sea level. What country is it in?

This might give it away but, in all fairness, there are [at least] two possible answers.

This country is the only country outside of Europe where Dutch is spoken by a majority of inhabitants. The third most commonly spoken language in this country is a dialect of Hindi.
