Andorra, officially known as the Principality of Andorra ('''Catalan:''' ''Principat d'Andorra'') and also called Principality of the Valleys of Andorra ('''Catalan:''' ''Principat de les Valls d'Andorra''), is a dinky little mountain principality wedged between UsefulNotes/{{France}} and UsefulNotes/{{Spain}}, up in the Pyrenees mountains. Originally part of the lands of the Bishop of Urgell, Andorra managed to stay independent of both France and Spain for most of its history, with a few exceptions - it was gobbled up by Napoleon's France in 1812-13, and France occupied her again in 1933 after a wideboy named Boris Skosyreff declared himself sovereign of Andorra and tried to declare war on the Bishop of Urgell. Once again, French troops marched in in 1936 to prevent Andorra getting sucked into the Spanish civil war, and stayed until they were needed elsewhere in 1940. After that, the country was occupied by [[ThoseWackyNazis Germany]], and would remain thus until the final collapse of German power in Western Europe.

These days, Andorra is a quiet, prosperous little spot. Like many dinky little European principalities, it makes a nice living as a tax haven and its mountainous location makes it a popular ski resort. Its official language is Catalan. However [[BewareTheNiceOnes it is the only country in Europe or North America which has ''not'' signed the treaty banning the development, storage, and use of biological weapons]].

Andorra declared war on ImperialGermany during WorldWarOne, but was overlooked when the peace treaties were signed, so technically remained at war with Germany until 1957, when someone noticed and a separate peace was concluded.
