For centuries the Bhutanese government was the expression of a wise balance between the power of the great feudal lords and that of the Buddhist clergy; only in 1907 the country managed to become a hereditary monarchy (Wangchuk dynasty) transformed in 1969 from absolute to “democratic”, that is to say a sort of modified constitutional monarchy, Bhutan not having a formal constitution. The head of the government is the monarch, assisted by an assembly, called Tshogdu, made up of 150 members of which 105 are elected on a family basis, whose functions, in the periods of updating, are carried out by a Royal Advisory Council of 9 members (Lodoi Tsokde). On the basis of the political reforms launched by the sovereign in 1998, monarchical power has undergone a significant downsizing: with the new rules, the Assembly has the power to dismiss the king with a motion of no confidence, which must however obtain at least two thirds of the votes. . The king also renounced the right to appoint the Council of Ministers, which now rests with the Assembly. The judicial system, centered on Buddhist precepts, is divided into a Supreme Court of Appeal and a High Court, composed of judges appointed by the sovereign. Military service is voluntary; in addition to the army, there is a Royal Guard and a police force. Bhutan’s school system does not include compulsory education. Primary school begins at 6 years of age and lasts for 6 years. This is followed by secondary school starting from 13 years of age and foresees two school cycles of 2 years each. The instruction is given in English, but it is compulsory to study the dzongkha. For higher education, many students finish their studies abroad. The illiteracy rate, particularly high due to the poor conditions of the school system, in 2010 was 47.2%. According to COUNTRYAAH, Bhutan is a nation in Southern Asia, the capital city of which is Thimphu. The latest population of Bhutan is 771,619.

Among them are the Manās, which originates in Tibet and entirely crosses the Great Himalayas, and Machu, which runs through the Punakha valley and is called Sankosh in the plains.
