Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. The country, which borders Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east, was historically a confederation, and has been a federation since 1848. Switzerland is a federation of relatively autonomous cantons, some of which have a history of confederacy that goes back more than 700 years, arguably putting them among the world's oldest surviving republics. With an area of 41,285 square kilometres, Switzerland is a relatively small country. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura Mountains. Switzerland has four official languages namely German, French, Italian and Romansh.
Dietikon is the fifth largest city of the region of Zurich, after Zurich, Winterthur, Uster and Dubendorf. It is the capital of the district of Dietikon and part of the Zurich Greater Urban area. The industrial city Dietikon is situated at an altitude of 388 meters at the convergence of Reppisch and Limmat rivers as well as at the railway line from Zurich to Baden. In 2005, the population of the city was 22,104 and has an area of 9.33 square kilometers. Approximately 25 percent of the municipality is covered by forests, the largest and most well-known of which are Honeret, Guggenbuehl and Rohrenmoos.
