Switzerland is located at the very heart of Europe, bordered by Germany, France, Italy, Austria, and Liechtenstein. The landscape is largely shaped by the Alps, meaning most of the 7.9 million people are live on the Plateau. This is also where the largest cities, Zürich and Geneva, can be found. The capital of Switzerland is still Bern with a population of only 135,000.
Measured by GDP per capita, Switzerland is one the richest countries in the world and has more wealth per adult than any other country in the world. The biggest cities, Zürich and Geneva, were ranked as having the second and third highest quality of life in the world, respectively. The country is also called the most competitive country in the world. Throughout most of the 20th century, Switzerland was the wealthiest country in Europe.
