  2. About Switzerland

    Switzerland

    Switzerland (, , , ), officially the Swiss Confederation (Confoederatio Helvetica in Latin and when abbreviated, ch, the ISO country code of Switzerland), is a landlocked nation of 7.5 million people in Western Europe. It is bordered by Germany, France, Italy, Austria and Liechtenstein. Switzerland is multilingual, with four official languages: German, French, Italian and Romansh. Switzerland is divided into 26 cantons, six of which are sometimes referred to as "half-cantons," since they stemmed from the split of three cantons and have as a consequence only a single representative in the Council of States. Switzerland has had a long history of being neutral (it has not been in a foreign war since 1815) and therefore hosts various international organisations, such as the United Nations, which, though headquartered in New York City, has many departments in Switzerland.

    The titles commonly used to name Switzerland in French , Italian and Romansh translate as "Swiss Confederation". Its Latin name "Confoederatio Helvetica" and its country code "ch" are related to the Helvetii, an ancient Celtic people who inhabited the Alps. It dates its independence to 1291; historically it was a confederation, and it has been a federation since 1848."
