Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco is a sovereign city-state, country and microstate located on the French Riviera in Western Europe.

France borders the country on three sides while the other side borders the Mediterranean Sea.

Monaco has an area of 2.02 km2 (0.78 sq mi) and a population of about 38.400, according to the last census of 2016.
With 19.009 inhabitants per km², it is the second-smallest and most densely populated sovereign state in the world.

Monaco has a land border of 5.47 km (3.40 mi), a coastline of 3.83 km (2.38 mi), and a width that varies between 1.700 and 349 m (1,859 and 382 yd).
Through land reclamation, Monaco's land mass has expanded by twenty percent; in 2005, it had an area of only 1.974 km2 (0.762 sq mi).

Monaco is a principality governed under a form of constitutional monarchy, with Prince Albert II as head of state.
Although Prince Albert II is a constitutional monarch, he wields immense political power.
The House of Grimaldi have ruled Monaco, with brief interruptions, since 1297.

The official language is French, but Monégasque, Italian, and English are widely spoken and understood.The state's sovereignty was officially recognized by the Franco-Monegasque Treaty of 1861, with Monaco becoming a full United Nations voting member in 1993.
Despite Monaco's independence and separate foreign policy, its defense is the responsibility of France. However, Monaco does maintain two small military units.

Economic development was spurred in the late 19th century with the opening of the country's first casino, Monte Carlo, and a railway connection to Paris.
Since then, Monaco's mild climate, scenery, and gambling facilities have contributed to the principality's status as a tourist destination and recreation center for the rich.
In more recent years, Monaco has become a major banking center and has sought to diversify its economy into the services sector and small, high-value-added, non-polluting industries.
The state has no income tax, low business taxes, and is well known for being a tax haven.
It is also the host of the annual street circuit motor race Monaco Grand Prix, one of the original Grands Prix of Formula One.

Monaco is not formally a part of the European Union (EU), but it participates in certain EU policies, including customs and border controls.
Through its relationship with France, Monaco uses the euro as its sole currency (prior to this it used the Monégasque franc). Monaco joined the Council of Europe in 2004.
It is a member of the Organisation Internationale de la Francophonie (OIF).
