Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, is a landlocked Alpine country in Central Europe. It had been a federation, since 1848, 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. Switzerland comprises three basic topographical areas namely the Swiss Alps, the Swiss plateau, and the Jura Mountains. Switzerland has four official languages, German in the north and centre, French to the west, Italian in the south and Romansh in the southeast. Switzerland has a strong economy in finance and banking, and a long and strong tradition of political and military neutrality.
Nidau is a municipality and the capital of the district of Nidau, in the canton of Bern, is the second largest of all Switzerland’s cantons. It borders the Canton of Jura and the Canton of Solothurn to the north, the Canton of Neuchatel, the Canton of Fribourg and Vaud to the west, the Valais to the west and the cantons of Uri, Nidwalden, Obwalden, Lucerne and Aargau to the east. The official language is German but a small French speaking population lives in Nidau. As of 2005 Nidau had a population of 6909 residents living within an area of 1.5 square kilometers.
