Andorra is one of the smallest countries in the world. The area is only 467 square kilometers. The country is completely landlocked in the middle of Spain and France.

Both spouses have constitutional guarantees of equal rights in conjugal life. The initiative to ensure proper use of land and other natural resources in the interest of present and future generations is commendable.

These are positive aspects. Now let's discuss the negative aspects.

The President of France and a Bishop of Spain are jointly the Prince of Andorra. They don't have anyone among themselves that they have to “hire” someone from another country? The constitution clearly declares the Roman Catholic Church to be a special patron of the state.
