Liechtenstein's small size and location in the heart of Europe makes it special. It is a monarchy, with the Reigning Prince as head of state representing the Principality in dealings with other countries. The Constitution sets out two methods of direct democracy: the Initiative and the Referendum. Legislative power lies with the Parliament, executive power with the Government. The judicial system in Liechtenstein is known as the Court of Justice ("Landgericht"); the highest judicial authority is the Supreme Court ("Oberster Gerichtshof").
