One of the world’s smallest (second only to the Vatican)–and richest– city-states, Monaco takes much of its language and traditions from France, which borders it on 3 sides. Catholicism is the official and predominant religion, although religious freedom is enshrined in the constitution. The only city is Monte Carlo.
