Andorra, officially the Principality of Andorra, also called the Principality of the Valleys of Andorra, is a small landlocked country in western Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France.

It is currently a prosperous country mainly because of tourism and its status as a tax haven.

The people of Andorra are currently listed as having the highest human life expectancy in the world, at an average of 85 years at birth.

Andorra is the sixth smallest nation in Europe. Its name is thought to be derived from an ancient Basque tribe, the Andosinos, who are believed to have inhabited that region of the Pyrenees thousands of years ago. Source
