The subcontinent of North America is limited to the north by the arctic Glacial Ocean, to the east by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by Central America (or South America). By the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea and to the west by the Pacific Ocean. It also includes, in addition to the continental portion, Greenland (the largest island in the World), Newfoundland, the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, the Ale├║tes, the island of Vancouver, the islands of the Queen Charlotte and a myriad of other islands, scattered throughout the seas that surround her.
