Background Information for San Marino
Background: The third smallest state in Europe (after the Holy See and Monaco), San Marino also claims to be the world's oldest republic.

San Marino's foreign policy is aligned with that of Italy; social and political trends in the republic also track closely with those of its larger neighbor.
