So this idea is not exactly something new. But it hasn't been done for my own country. Denmark used to use FPTP until it was changed between 1915-1920, but I thought it'd be interesting to see what parliamentary districts might look like today. I am basing this on parishes, because to my knowledge that's the smallest administrative divisions for which population numbers are published.

I'm dividing it by landsdele (provinces) which OTL serve as multi-member electoral districts. The seats per landsdel are as follows:

Østjylland - 27
Byen København - 23
Sydjylland - 22
Nordjylland - 18
Vest- og sydsjælland - 18
Københavns omegn - 16
Fyn - 15
Nordsjælland - 14
Vestjylland - 13
Østsjælland - 7
Grønland - 2
Færøerne - 2
Bornholm - 2
For 179 seats in total.

Just like in the real world, Bornholm is specifically assigned 2 seats. They have largely remained unchanged since 1848, except for an adjustment in 1970 which decreased the size of Rønne

Eastern Zealand (which is west of Copenhagen) traditionally consisted mostly of small towns in addition to Roskilde. With the expansion of Copenhagen's metropolitan area, this has changed, with the eastern coast now being densely populated, resulting in previous towns transforming to larger sizes.
