"A sunny place for shady people."

Monaco, officially the Principality of Monaco, is a sovereign city-state and microstate on the French Riviera a few kilometres west of the Italian region of Liguria, in Western Europe, on the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by France to the north, east and west. The principality is home to 38,682 residents,[1] of whom 9,486 are Monégasque nationals;[2] it is widely recognised for being one of the most expensive and wealthiest places in the world.

With an area of 2.1 km² (0.81 sq mi), it is either the second-smallest sovereign state in the world, after Vatican City, or the third if the BIS is counted.

The principality is governed under a form of constitutional monarchy, with Prince Albert II of the Grimaldi family as head of state. Until recently, the Casino de Monte-Carlo has been the primary source of income for the House of Grimaldi and the Monegasque economy.

Deep state importance

In 2014, it was noted about 30% of the population was made up of millionaires, due to its advantageous tax laws. Thanks to its jet-set crowd and secrecy, it is a place for a significant amount of deep state activities.
