I’ve always been interested in little countries, and Liechtenstein is no exception. Don’t know about this small principality? Here are some facts:

  • It is landlocked between Switzerland and Austria
  • Its area is 160 km²
  • It has only 36,304 residents
  • German is the official language, but locals use two Alemannic dialects
  • Prince Hans-Adam II von Liechtenstein is the head of state
  • Their currency is the Swiss Franc

Being very mountainous means it is a great winter sports destination. Its low corporate tax rate of 12.5% attracts many companies. Furthermore it has one of the highest GDPs in the world, not to mention a very low unemployment rate of 1.5%.
