HUMAN AND ECONOMIC GEOGRAPHY
Southern European state, enclave of Italy, located in the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines. As of December 2006 the population was 26,000 residents, equal to a density of 475.4 residents / km 2. It is one of the smallest countries in the world and according to the World Bank it benefits from a high income, of which over 50 % comes from tourism: it is visited on average by 3 million people every year. To reduce the state’s dependence on this sector, the government has encouraged the development of some light industries, which process materials imported from Italy. The financial sector is also highly developed, thanks to favorable tax legislation. In December2004 SM signed an important agreement with the European Union relating to the savings income of non-residents, accompanied by a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at safeguarding the local financial system, integrating it at the same time with the European system.
