The Swiss Confederacy is a confederal state in Europe consisting of eight autonomous cantons; Uri, Schwyz, Unterwalden, Lucerne, Glarus, Berne, Zürich and Zug. Each canton is largely self-governing, primarily through elected councils, the eight uniting primarily in foreign policy and to uphold shared freedoms, particularly in the face of Austrian aggression. Nominally members of the Holy Roman Empire, the Swiss largely reject its rule. As of 1400, under the Pact of Lucerne, the cantons also share a legislature, the Tagastzung, which allows can make decisions on areas of national interest, such as collective financial and trade policy.
