The Principality of Monaco is a state in Western Europe. It is surrounded by France on the Mediterranean coast. The distinction between the state and the city of Monaco is purely theoretical, the state consists de facto only of the city. With its very small area, Monaco is the smallest state in the world after Vatican City, but with 16,410 residents per km² it has the highest population density in the world. In Monaco there has been no direct tax liability for private individuals since 1869. The large proportion of wealthy immigrants has made the principality a symbol of luxury and wealth.

Monaco lives mainly from VAT. Gambling now accounts for less than 5%, after the Second World War it was still 70%. In terms of trade policy, Monaco belongs to France. The agreements concluded by France within the European Union do not automatically apply to Monaco.

Monaco: Monaco City

We are talking about the state of Monaco, but also about the city of Monaco at the same time. Thus Monaco is a city-state. And what is the name of the capital of Monaco? Nothing, because Monaco has no capital. It’s actually quite simple, because hardly any difference is made. The administration and government of the country are located in Monaco-Ville. It is located on a steep rock ledge, one of the foothills of the French Maritime Alps. Here is also the castle of the Prince of Grimald I, the old part of the city and the ocean- themed museum.
