Holy See (Vatican City State)

Vatican City, also known as the Holy See, is an independent city-state enclaved within Rome, Italy. It is the smallest country in the world by both area and population, with an area of 44 hectares and a population of around 800 people. The Vatican City is the spiritual and administrative center of the Roman Catholic Church, and is the residence of the Pope. It is also the smallest country in the world to have its own postal system, media, and army (Swiss Guard).

The Vatican City is home to several important religious and historical sites, including St. Peter's Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Sistine Chapel. These sites attract millions of visitors each year, making tourism a significant source of revenue for the Vatican City. The Vatican City also has a small economy based on the sale of postage stamps, coins, and publications, as well as contributions from Catholic dioceses around the world.

The Vatican City is a sovereign state and has its own government, laws, and diplomatic corps, but it has no military and relies on Italy for its defense. The Vatican City has observer status in the United Nations and maintains diplomatic relations with many countries around the world.... Show more
