Vatican City, the world’s smallest independent state, is an ecclesiastical city-state surrounded by Rome, Italy, with a population of around 800. As the spiritual and administrative center of the Roman Catholic Church, Vatican City is led by the Pope, who serves as the head of state and spiritual leader. Governed as an absolute elective monarchy, the Pope’s authority is not subject to political parties. The Vatican City State, established in 1929 through the Lateran Treaty, encompasses St. Peter’s Basilica, the Vatican Museums, and the Apostolic Palace. The Holy See, the central governing body of the Catholic Church, influences the city-state’s domestic and foreign affairs. Vatican City’s economy is supported by tourism, the sale of postage stamps and souvenirs, and contributions from the global Catholic community. The city-state, despite its small size, holds significant cultural and historical importance, housing iconic artworks such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling. As a spiritual and religious center, Vatican City plays a crucial role in the global Catholic community and international diplomacy, often engaging in discussions on social justice, peace, and human rights. While Vatican City lacks political parties in the traditional sense, its unique status as both a religious and sovereign entity underscores its exceptional place in the geopolitical landscape.
