Environmental indicator: the value of carbon dioxide emissions, per capita (metric tons, 1999), is 0.8.

The population is estimated at 33 987 inhabitants (2006), which corresponds to a density of approximately 210.75 inhab./km2. The birth and death rates are respectively 10.21% and 7.18%. Average life expectancy is 79.68 years. It is estimated that, in 2025, the population will be 38 000 inhabitants. Liechtenstein's natives make up 62% of the population, followed by Swiss (16%), Austrians (8%) and Germans (4%). The most prominent religions are Catholic, with 80%, and Protestant, with 7%. The official language is German.

History
Over the centuries the territory of Liechtenstein has been occupied by two suzerains: that of the Holy Roman Empire and that of Vaduz and Schellenberg. The principality of Liechtenstein, founded in 1719, consists of these two suzerains. Between 1806 and 1815, the territory was part of the Rhine Confederation and, between 1815 and 1866, it was part of the German Confederation. In 1866, Liechtenstein became independent, but the Vaduz and Schellenberg regions remain separate electoral districts.

Currently, Liechtenstein is a constitutional monarchy in which government power derives from the prince and the population. The succession of the throne is inherited by the male line and is determined by the regulations of the Royal House. Only in 1984 did women, over the age of 20, gain the right to vote in national, but not local, matters. Although there is a police force, since 1868 the army has been abolished.
