Political System

Bhutan became the youngest democracy in the world when it conducted its first parliamentary elections on March 24, 2008.

Climate & Environment

Bhutan has four seasons and a highly varied climatic condition which can be attributed to two main factors: the vast differences in altitude and the influence of the north Indian monsoons.
