Liechtenstein is a micronation in central Europe, bordered by Switzerland to the west and Austria to the east. It is also a principality, headed by Prince Hans-Adam II, but although the prince retains some powers there is a traditional government in place, led by Prime Minister Adrian Hasler.

It is one of the world’s most wealthy countries and has been listed by the CIA as having the highest GDP per capita. Much of its citizens’ wealth can be attributed to its status as a tax haven. Liechtenstein is named after its original ruling family, who first gained the fief of Vaduz in the 17th century.
