The North Pole is the magnetic pole that has no land mass beneath it. The North Pole is merely a floating mass of ice that drifts throughout the year. Thus, it has no permanent location and no permanent inhabitants.
Since the North Pole does not have a land mass beneath the ice, it has no permanent buildings, and it is not considered a part of any continent. Unlike the North Pole, the South Pole has a permanent land mass existing beneath it that is covered by several feet of ice. This landmass is located in the southern continent of Antarctica.
