Andorra is between France and Spain. Located in the Pyrenees Mountains, Andorra is the sixth-smalled country in Europe, with a total area of 181 square miles.

The president of France and the bishop of Urgell serve as co-princes of Andorra. Their roles are entirely symbolic, however, as the chief executive of Andorra gets his power through democratic parliamentary elections. The country does not have its own army, but depends on the armies of France and Spain to defend it in times of trouble. Much of its economy relies on France and Spain as well, as tourists from those countries visit to take advantage of its excellent ski resorts.
