Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra (CatalanPrincipat d’Andorra),[1] is a sovereign landlocked microstate on the Iberian Peninsula, in the eastern Pyrenees, bordered by France to the north and Spain to the south. Believed to have been created by Charlemagne, Andorra was ruled by the count of Urgell until 988, when it was transferred to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Urgell. The present principality was formed by a charter in 1278. It is headed by two co-princes: the Bishop of Urgell in Catalonia, Spain and the President of France. Its capital and largest city is Andorra la Vella.

Andorra, small independent European coprincipality situated among the southern peaks of the Pyrenees Mountains and bounded by France to the north and east and by Spain to the south and west. It is one of the smallest states in Europe. The capital is Andorra la Vella. Andorra consists of a cluster of mountain valleys whose streams unite to form the Valira River. Two of these streams, the Madriu and the Perafita, flow into the Madriu-Perafita-Claror valley, which occupies about one-tenth of Andorra’s land area and is characterized by glacial landscapes, steep valleys, and open pastures.

Andorra has a population of 71,700 people (2015). Capital and largest town is Andorra la Vella. Spoken languages are Catalan (official), Spanish and French.

Background:

Long isolated and impoverished, mountainous Andorra has achieved considerable prosperity since World War II through its tourist industry. Many immigrants (legal and illegal) are attracted to the thriving economy with its lack of income taxes.

Official Sites of Andorra

Until 1993 there was no clear separation between legislative, executive and judicial branches in Andorra. Only the Constitution of 4 May 1993 established Andorra’s politics in a framework of a parliamentary representative democracy. Head of state is the Prime Minister, the leader of the General Council of Andorra. Head of state are traditionally two Co-Princes, the President of France and the Bishop of Urgell (Catalonia, Spain).
