A small mountainous Kingdom sandwiched between India and China, Bhutan ('''Dzongkha:''' འབྲུག་ཡུལ་), officially known as Kingdom of Bhutan ('''Dzongkha:''' འབྲུག་རྒྱལ་ཁབ་), was a land of minor warring fiefdoms until Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal united them in the 1630s. He sought to carve a separate identity from the Tibeten culture from which many practices derived. The country fell to civil war with his passing, but the country was able to thwart two invasion attempts. They invaded Cooch Behar kingdom, which appealed to the British West India Company, which helped ousted the Bhutanese and both parties signed a peace treaty that lead to a tenuous peace. Actual peace followed during the Duar Wars, where Bhutan was defeated.

The country is gradually opening up to the world, albeit slowly, so as to preserve its Buddhist culture. Their flag is also famous for having a [[OurDragonsAreDifferent dragon]] on it. One of the only five countries not to have diplomatic relations with the United States. Three of the others are sworn enemies (North Korea, Cuba, and Iran), and the other one is a complex diplomatic issue (Taiwan), so this one just seems really out of place. One of the odder aspects (at least, odd to a foreigner) is that they have a [[ForHappiness Happiness Index]], and according to magazine ''Business Week'', is the happiest country in Asia.
