* Various countries the world over resemble this trope: Europe has UsefulNotes/{{Monaco}}, UsefulNotes/{{Liechtenstein}}, UsefulNotes/{{Luxembourg}}, and UsefulNotes/VaticanCity[[note]]The pope, as head of state, is indeed a monarch. Also, the Vatican is of course ''super'' micro, given that it is not only small but entirely surrounded by one ''city''--Rome.[[/note]], (Andorra is a weird case, as its co-princes are the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diocese_of_Urgell bishop of Urgell]] and ...''[[UsefulNotes/ThePresidentsOfFrance the president of France]]''); the Middle East has the smaller Arab states of the Persian Gulf (particularly Bahrain); Southeast Asia has UsefulNotes/{{Brunei}}. In mainland Asia there's UsefulNotes/{{Bhutan}}.
