Well I'm going to talk about Spain, and hopefully you would know more about the country where I'm from and some differences and some likenesses with United States. Spain is situated in the southeastof Europe, and no in South America like a lot of people think. Is under France and touching in the left part with Portugal. Europe is one of the oldest continents, that’s why there are a lot ofdifferent languages, but Spain is the only one who talks Spanish.

The form of government, Spain is a monarchic state, that means we have a king, Juan Carlos II, but we also have a president of government, Zapatero.This kind of government is almost the same as in the United States where there is a president of government.
