Switzerland is a quite small Central European country. It has a population of about 7.3 million inhabitants, but a very high GDP per capita, i.e. the living standard is very high there. Therefore, Switzerland's economy is quite big. The economic activity and unemployment rate are both quite good.

The life expectancy exceeds 80 years, which is very good. Reasons for that may be the excellent drinking water and sanitation coverage and the low HIV rate. On the other hand, the GHG emissions are quite large. The school life expectancy is quite long, while the tertiary education enrolment ratio is far away from those of top countries in that area.
