The tiny state San Marino is one of the smallest one s in the world except Monaco and Vatican. It is hard to believe that there are such small countries on our planet. Though they are ridiculously tiny they still have their own national army, government, post stamps and other attributes of a real state. But their size is compatible to the size of the one single district of the major American cities. San Marino is the oldest country in Europe. It was founded in the beginning of the fourteenth century on the north of Italy. Its present-day population is less than 32 thousand people. But that fact doesn’t prevent the country to have the government revenue per head of 50 000 USD a year.
