Bordering France and Spain in the eastern Pyrenees mountains is the small landlocked nation of Andorra (officially the Principality of Andorra.) The terrain is largely rough and mountainous with an average height of 1996 meters above sea level. It enjoys a temperate climate similar to it's neighboring nations but with higher amounts of average snowfall in the winter months and cooler temperatures in the summer.
This Western European country spent a large part of it's history isolated from other nations, but due to current developments in globalization and communication technology, the country currently has a booming tourism economy. It also attracts businesses and individuals interested in high finance due to it's status as a tax haven.
The population of Andorra has one of the longest life expectancy averages of any country in the world at 83.52 years. The population is also multi-cultural, with Catalan being the official language and Spanish, Portuguese, and French also being commonly spoken. Although Andorra is not a member of the European Union, the euro is primarily used as its currency.
