Switzerland has a very diverse geography, ranging from the rolling plains of the Jura to the towering peaks of the Alps. The nation is considered an Alpine State, due to most of the nation being situated in the mountains. The Jura provides the Swiss with most of the agricultural products and the cities contain much of the industry. The Alps are used by the Swiss as a natural barrier, keeping out potential enemies.


Switzerland is a direct democracy with the citizens voting for constitutional amendments, and laws. There is a board of 7 politicians who act as the executive branch, and enforce the laws along with making Swiss foreign policy. There is a National Assembly who make and pass minor laws, but most laws are voted on by the people. Swiss voting percentages are quite high with 89% of people voting. Citizens have the right to call for laws, financial plans, and other issues to be voted on by direct democracy, the people.

Political Divisions

Switzerland is divided into 26 cantons. Each canton has their own constitution, judicial system, laws, and parliament. They act as individual republics, unified under one government.
