Liechtenstein ( (listen) LIK-tən-styne; German: [ˈlɪçtn̩ʃtaɪn]), Formally the Principality of Liechtenstein (German: Fürstentum Liechtenstein), is a German-speaking microstate situated in the Alps and in the southwest of Central Europe.

The principality is a semi-constitutional monarchy headed by the Prince of Liechtenstein; the Prince's extensive powers are equivalent to those of a President at a semi-presidential system. Liechtenstein is bordered by Switzerland to the south and west and Austria to the north and west. It is Europe's fourth-smallest country, with an area of just over 160 square kilometres (62 square miles) and a population of 38,749. Divided into 11 municipalities, its funding is Vaduz, and its biggest municipality is Schaan. It is also the smallest country to edge two countries. Liechtenstein is one of only two doubly landlocked countries in the world, along with Uzbekistan. Economically, Liechtenstein has among the greatest gross domestic products per individual in the world when adjusted for purchasing power parity. The country has a strong financial sector centered in Vaduz. It was once called a billionaire tax haven, but is no longer on any blacklists of uncooperative tax haven countries. An Alpine country, Liechtenstein is mountainous, which makes it a winter sport destination. Liechtenstein is a member of the United Nations, the European Free Trade Association, and the Council of Europe. Although not a part of the European Union, it participates in both the Schengen Area and the European Economic Area. It also has a customs union and a monetary union with Switzerland.
