Spain, one of the oldest countries of Europe, was a powerful nation in the sixteen and seventeenth centuries. The third largest country in Europe, Spain, is heavily influenced by Moorish and European society. Culturally a rich land, Spain has also been blessed with mesmerizing landscapes, making it the second biggest tourism destination in the world.

One of the wealthiest nations of the ancient world, Spain has had to struggle in the recent past to gain economic stability.

At present Spain is the 13th most economically developed country of the world.

Spain's strategic location along the ocean and seas has helped her to have control over many colonies in the past. At present also Spain controls a number of territories in northern Morocco.

Spain has a Parliamentary Monarchy, where the Prime Minister is answerable to the Congress of Deputies and Senate. The Prime Minister is elected every 4 years. The monarch serves as the head of the state and commander in chief of the forces. The seventeen regions of Spain have their own sovereign governments. Central government only delegates powers to the regional governments, especially for health care, education, and other social programs. At present, Spain's Prime Minister is Mariano Rajoy.
