Vatican City

The Vatican City is the smallest independent country with 500 residents. It has its own flag and a Swiss guard to protect the Pope. The Swiss Guard is made up of 100 soldiers. Those soldiers must be Swiss males between the ages of 19 and 30. They must be Catholic and be at least 174 cm tall. Despite its small size, the Vatican receives 10 million visitors annually.
