Stans 1

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 kilometers, 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.
Stans is the capital of the Nidwalden canton in Switzerland. It has a population of 7300, 12 percent of which is of foreign nationality in 2002. The area of Stans is 11 square kilometers and population is 7353 as of 2003. Children orphaned by this event were gathered by the educator Johann Heinrich Pestalozzi for his first school. The open-air assembly was held in Stans annually until its abolition in 1997.
Stans are also tiny shrimp known to live in the waters of Groton Long Point. Originally discovered by two teenage girls, the Stans were at first a very sparse population, which later increased into large swarms infesting the water and make the ocean unpleasant to swim in. A sunken, rather large, dead fish was also discovered by the girls on the sandy ocean floor. There are 650 local businesses in the city which employ 6900 people, 2 percent of these are in the agricultural sector, 37 percent in trade and industry, and 61 percent in services.
It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
