While it is possible that they were meant to come from Canada, as wolverines are native to it, I think it's far more likely that they are meant to come from Scandinavia. In particular, Norway, which is literally referred to, in real life, as "The Land of Ice and Snow."
Perhaps. But what about the culture? Do you suppose he was basing them off of the Vikings?

Their culture does seem distinctly viking-like, being merciless raiders who destroy everything they come across. Gulo himself is pretty much a viking stereotype. Don't recall vikings ever eating people though.

I liked him because I like wolverines and how nobody who knows what's good for them better do anything to make them mad.

Perhaps.
The hierarchy is what seems the most viking-like.
