Background: The Swiss Confederation was founded in 1291 as a defensive alliance among three cantons. In succeeding years, other localities joined the original three. The Swiss Confederation secured its independence from the Holy Roman Empire in 1499. Switzerland's sovereignty and neutrality have long been honored by the major European powers, and the country was not involved in either of the two World Wars. The political and economic integration of Europe over the past half century, as well as Switzerland's role in many UN and international organizations, has strengthened Switzerland's ties with its neighbors. However, the country did not officially become a UN member until 2002. Switzerland remains active in many UN and international organizations, but retains a strong commitment to neutrality.

History: The Swiss (German die Schweizer, French les Suisses, Italian gli Svizzeri) form a nationality, and although the modern state of Switzerland originated in 1848, the period of romantic nationalism, it is not a nation-state, and the Swiss do not form a single ethnic group but a confederacy (Eidgenossenschaft) or Willensnation ("nation of will", "nation by choice", that is, a consociational state), a term coined in conscious contrast to "nation" in the ethnic sense of the term.

The Swiss have grown in number from 1.7 million in 1815 to 6.5 million in 2006, 91% of them living in Switzerland. About 60% of those living abroad reside in the European Union (170,000, in France, 70,000 in Germany), the largest overseas community is in the USA (71,000). [from Wikipedia]
