Geography.
Andorra is a small landlocked country bordered by France to the north and Spain to the south.
It lies in the valley of the River Gran Valira (central eastern Pyrenees) and has an Alpine climate.

Government


According to the new Constitution of 4 May 1993, Andorra became “an independent, democratic and social state”.
The Heads of State are two “co-princes” (the President of the French Republic and the Bishop of Urgell, in Spain) who are represented by two Viguiers. The Consell General (28 members elected for four years) elects the Prime Minister and appoints the government.
