Luxembourg

'''Luxembourg''' (

As a representative democracy with a constitutional monarch (constitutional monarchy), it is headed by a grand duke, Henri, Grand Duke of Luxembourg, and is the world's only remaining grand duchy. Luxembourg is a developed country, with an advanced economy and the world's second highest GDP (PPP) per capita (List of countries by GDP (PPP) per capita) (after Qatar), according to the World Bank. Its central location has historically made it of great strategic importance to numerous powers, dating back to its founding as a Roman (Roman Empire) fortress (Fortification), its hosting of a vital Frankish (Kingdom of the Franks) castle during the Early Middle Ages, and its role as a bastion for the Spanish Road between 16th and 17th centuries.

Luxembourg is a member of the European Union, NATO, OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development), the United Nations, and Benelux, reflecting its political consensus in favour of economic (economic integration), political, and military integration. The city of Luxembourg (Luxembourg (city)), which is the capital (capital city) and largest city, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the EU. On 18 October 2012, Luxembourg was elected to a temporary seat on the United Nations Security Council for the first time in its history. The country served on the Security Council from 1 January 2013 until 31 December 2014. http: www.wort.lu en politics un-asselborn-s-final-security-council-meeting-54943bcb0c88b46a8ce49a8d Reflecting its geographic position, Luxembourg's culture is a fusion of Romanic (Romance language) and Germanic (Germanic languages) Europe, integrating customs of each. Accordingly, Luxembourg is a trilingual (multilingualism) country: Luxembourgish (Luxembourgish language), French (French language) and German (German language) are official languages. Although a secular state, Luxembourg is predominantly Roman Catholic.
