Please give some facts that make Switzerland stand out among other nations. These facts could include anything weird, unnatural or worth highlighting to someone who want to learn some interesting things about Switzerland.
first you can compare the rare Swiss origin people with the inhabitants from the village of indomitable Gauls, they tell to be open to all, but fight for staying independent of the surrounding Romans, äh, sorry, no the EU (Schengen) area. Indeed Switzerland is a loose federation of 26 independent cantons, merged together by Napoleon in the early 1800s to one central governed state. Switzerland is one of the oldest democraties, they tell, but in fact, the way it shows today, it's founded in 1874. before we suffered lots of civil and religious wars, still shown by the fact, that there are still roman catholic and protestant cantons on the paper. about half of the Swiss speak "Swiss" a precedessor of the old Allemannic, with about three main streams, the "highest Allemannic" in the area around Friboug area (where somewhere around 50 % speak french) and the upper Valais area. Between Berne and the Reuss river it is "high Allemanic" spoken and eastern it is "lower Allemannic", they speak. Normaly, Swiss origin people are not used to speak German (or "high German"), even it the written language is German. For Test and Mail messages and in Chat, Swiss German speaking persons are writing in Swiss, even it is not a written language. in the western part of Switzerland they speak French (les Romands) who were romanised in the late Roman empire years. In the southern parts, they mainly speak Italian and some regions in the far south-eastern part they speak Raeto-Roman, one of the oldest European languages.
About 60 % of Switzerland is mountain area and the rest begins more and more stuffed full of migrants. Actually almost around 30 % of the Swiss inhabitants have abroad passports. Up to the late 1980s Switzerland was delared as an emmigration country, as more Swiss left here, than came to live here. Suddenly it changed. Where there only 6 Millions living here arount 1990 there are now over 8,5 Millions. one problem is, that the infrastructure remains on the 1990 level and so we have issues like bigger countries and big towns with stuffed trains, roads and actually, from my point of view, Switzerland begins to convert in one big town, between Zurich and Berne. But as far as you leave the midlands, an area between the Jurassic- and Alpes Mountain System (going from West to East), you will find pure nice country side and very relaxing natural areas.
To be said, that the largest town in our country has only 350000 inhabitants and the capital (Berne) only less than 100000.
for now I have to leave, if you have further questions, about night live, things you MUST see and other stuff, please tell me, I will do my best to explain from my side of view
