A small, mountainous South Asian country sandwiched between India and China, Bhutan ('''Dzongkha:''' ''འབྲུག་ཡུལ་'', '''Druk Yul'''), officially known as the '''Kingdom of Bhutan''' ('''Dzongkha:''' ''འབྲུག་རྒྱལ་ཁབ་'', ''Druk Gyal Khap''), is a monarchy that has enjoyed enduring independence for centuries, having never been colonized in its history. A land of minor warring fiefdoms until Shabdrung Ngawang Namgyal united them in the 1630s, he sought to carve a separate identity from the Tibetan 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 (now part of West Bengal), which appealed to the British East 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.
