Bhutan

Bhutan, officially Kingdom of Bhutan, is a country of South Asia located in the Himalayas and without exit to the sea. It limits to the north with the People's Republic of China and to the south with India. It is a nation governed by a constitutional monarchy, whose organs and seat of government are in the capital, Timbu. With an area of ​​40,994 km² and a population of less than 800,000 inhabitants, Bhutan is one of the smallest and least populated countries on the planet. Its territory is divided into ten provinces.

The origins of the country go back to the VIII century of our era, with the introduction of Buddhism by the Tibetans and the expansion of their empire into the territory that is now Bhutan. Until the seventeenth century the population of the territory was always in continuous wars, but the Tibetan chief Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal unified them and began to extend the territory. Later, some of the lands conquered passed to the British Company of the East Indies, in order that they helped to expel the invaders. This was resolved through a peace agreement by which Bhutan would withdraw to its borders in 1730, although clashes continued. After that, defeated, they joined the British Raj, which became independent from the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947 giving rise to India. Two years later, the kingdom of Bhutan became independent from the Raj, signing an agreement with the Hindus to maintain their foreign relations.

The Wangchuck dynasty has governed since then and introduced various economic and political measures, such as the Gross National Happiness index as the main indicator of development instead of the economy, based on agriculture. In 2006, King Jigme Singye Wangchuck abdicated in his son Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, but was not crowned until 2008. A year before the first parliamentary elections had been held in the country, and afterwards the first constitution came into force. Most of the population works for the agricultural and livestock sector, although the industrial and service sectors have more economic weight.
