With a landmass of 0.75 squares miles, Monaco is second only to Vatican City as the smallest independent state in the world. Yet, this monarchy thrives by offering the rich and famous a spectacular piece of Mediterranean coastline and shelter from the taxman. It is a lethal cocktail that entices the world’s wealthy to deposit large amounts of money in Monaco’s banks and on the tables of the Place du Casino in Monte Carlo.

Monaco is completely surrounded on land by France and there are no designated borders between the two countries. French is therefore the most widely spoken language by Monaco’s 37,000 residents, although Italian and English are also widely used. The size of the population in relation to Monaco’s landmass makes it the most densely populated country in the world.

Monaco can justifiably be seen as a high-end entertainment centre. It hosts one of the premier Formula 1 Grand Prix and is a haven for yachting enthusiasts. The ruling Grimaldi family admirably lead the way.
