Officially titled the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg this is a landlocked country in Western Europe. It is bordered by Belgium to the west and north, Germany to the east, and France to the south.
It comprises two principal regions: the Oesling in the north as part of the Ardennes massif, and the Gutland (“good country”) in the south. The country has a population of around 525,000 and an area of 2,586 sqkm (998 sq mi), making it one of the smallest sovereign nations in Europe.
As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarch, it is headed by a grand duke and is the world’s only remaining grand duchy. The country is a developed country, with an advanced economy and the world’s highest GDP (PPP) per capita, according to the World Bank.
Its central location has historically made it of great strategic importance to numerous powers, dating back to its founding as a Roman fortress, its hosting of a vital Frankish castle during the Early Middle Ages, and its role as a bastion for the Spanish Road between 16th and 17th centuries.
