SPAIN

Spain has an area of 505,000 sq. Km. and occupies most of the Iberian peninsula. It borders with France and Portugal and is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea. It also includes the Balearic Islands and the Canary Islands archipelago as well as two cities on the opposite coast of Africa: Ceuta and Melilla. With higher mountains the Pyrenees, Sierra Nevada, Teide in Tenerife… With vast plateaus such as Castile, Manza. With fertile plains crossing the great rivers of the country: Evros, Tagus, Guadiana, Guadalquivir… The morphological puzzle of Spain is full of contradictions and differences. The population of the country amounts to 40 million inhabitants. The official language of the state is the Spanish at the same time but Catalan, the Basque and the Galician language are officially used in the corresponding autonomous provinces. The Spanish constitution says it is a popular state, but most Spaniards assume the Catholic Christian religion. The constitution is constitutional parliamentary monarchy. The Spanish Constitution of 1978 sought to recognize the strong personality of the various regions of Spain. These are local governments with very important and great responsibilities. Today, Spain is divided into seventeen autonomous provinces and each one has its own local Parliament and its own governor elected by the people. Madrid (the capital of the country) is the seat of the Assembly of Members, consisting of 350 representatives are elected by universal proportional vote throughout Spain. And the Senate is the Upper House consisting of 225 senators elected by the majority system in each of the provinces. These two bodies exercise the legislative power at national level.
