For 715 years, from 1278 to 1993, Andorrans lived under a unique co-principality, ruled by the French chief of state and the Spanish bishop of Urgel. In 1993, this feudal system was modified with the titular heads of state retained, but the government transformed into a parliamentary democracy. Long isolated and impoverished, mountainous Andorra achieved considerable prosperity since World War II through its tourist industry. Many immigrants (legal and illegal) are attracted to the thriving economy with its lack of income taxes. . LOCATION: Southwestern Europe, between France and Spain LOCATION: Temperate; snowy, cold winters and warm, dry summers BORDERS: France 56.6 km, Spain 63.7 km Andorra is administratively divided into seven districts. The people are made up of Andorrans of Catalan stock (about 25%), Spanish (over 50%), and French (6%), the remaining being mostly Portuguese and recent immigrants from other countries. Catalan is the official language, although Spanish and French are also spoken. Most of the population is Roman Catholic. Until the 1950s, farming, woodcutting, and smuggling were the main occupations. Andorra now has a prosperous tourist industry; skiing is particularly popular. Trade is duty-free and lack of taxation is attractive to foreign investment. There are three large hydroelectric facilities, and the country exports electricity to Spain. Sheep are raised, and Andorra's farms produce tobacco, grains, corn, and grapes. Furniture is manufactured and distilleries produce brandy and anisette. Iron and lead are mined.
