Liechtenstein

Size--61.78 sq. mi. (160.01 sq. km.). Population--24,000.

Nestled in Central Europe between Austria and Switzerland, Liechtenstein was established in its present form in 1719 when the territory was purchased by the princely House of Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein distinguishes itself by being the only independent country outside the Arab world in which women are not allowed to vote or to participate in public affairs. This tradition was broken once in 1968 when women were allowed to vote along with the men in a consultative poll to determine if women should be allowed to vote in national elections. The proposal was rejected.
