Andorra, Europe

Andorra is a small landlocked country in western Europe, located in the eastern Pyrenees mountains and bordered by Spain and France. Once isolated, it is currently a prosperous country mainly because of tourism and its status as a tax haven. The people of Andorra are currently listed as having the second highest human life expectancy in the world, at an average of 82.67 years at birth. Andorra is the sixth smallest nation in Europe. In March 2005, the Principality of Andorra first recognized the right of same-sex couples to join in civil unions. Both co-princes of Andorra (the President of France, and the Bishop of Urgell) have already signed a new civil code into law, despite existing controversy over the code's provisions on abortion. At least one partner must be a resident of Andorra or an Andorran national. Anti-discrimination laws cover sexual orientation and thus, discriminating against homosexuals is illegal.
