Under the Constitution of 1978, modified in a more democratic sense in 2006, Eswatini is a monarchy. Executive power is exercised by the king, head of state, and the prime minister, head of government, flanked by a cabinet appointed by the director. Legislative power is entrusted to the Parliament, made up of the Senate and the Assembly, whose members are partly appointed by the sovereign and whose functions are above all consultative. The administration of justice proceeds on a dual basis, one with its foundation in continental European law, the other having its roots in national traditions and having jurisdiction only in certain matters concerning ethnic Swazi citizens.. The administration of justice, in all other cases, is entrusted to the High Court and to a Court of Appeal (in Mbabane). The death penalty is in force, but executions have not taken place since 1983. The country has an army and the compulsory military service lasts 2 years. The Eswatini school system does not provide compulsory education. Primary education has a duration of 6 years, after which it is possible to access secondary education, given in high schools and lasting 5 years. Technical and professional education is given in three-year and four-year schools which are accessed at the end of primary school. Based on a 2007 estimate, the percentage of illiterate people was 16.2%. Higher education is given at the University of Eswatini based in Luyengo and Kwaluseni. According to COUNTRYAAH, Swaziland is a nation in Southern Africa, the capital city of which is Mbabane. The latest population of Swaziland is 1,163,491.

GEOGRAPHY
The territory of Eswatini structurally corresponds to the eastern escarpment of the ancient South African highlands, constituted largely by schists and granites era archeozoica, and presents itself as a succession of three main almost parallel bands well defined, not only for morphological reasons, but also climatic, floristic and economic. The western section corresponds to the so-called Highveld (in the SiSwati Inkangala language) or “high altitude expanse”, located at an average altitude of 1200 m, between rugged mountains with often steep slopes and lean pastures; rather rainy and heavily affected by erosion, it is however usable and now used for reforestation. From this region of highlands, mainly pastoral and forestry, it gradually passes into the Middleveld (or Ngwane), located approx. 700 m of altitude, a hilly area with medium rainfall that is well suited to plantations and crops in general and therefore densely populated; to E the Lowveld (Ihlanze), of low altitude (150-300 m), covered by savannas, where the scarcity of rains does not exclude rich pastures and very fertile soil. At the eastern edge of the Lowveld the rocky escarpment of the Lebombo mountains rises suddenly, on average 700 m high. § All Eswatini waterways are tributaries of the Indian Ocean; the main ones (Mbuluzi, Usutu etc.) come down rich in water from the Transvaal reliefseast and after crossing the country in all its width and furrowing the Lebombo mountains with deep gorges, they cover the last stretch in Mozambican territory. § The climate is temperate from the altitude (in Mbabane, located at 1163 m, the average January is 20 ºC, that of July, the coldest month, 12.4 ºC), but in summer temperatures are often excessive in the Lowveld. The precipitations, due to the contribution of the humid winds of the Indian Ocean, are concentrated in the austral summer, between October and March; not infrequently they come in the form of violent downpours. The maximum quantities are recorded in the higher areas of the Highveld (1000-2300 mm) more exposed to eastern winds, the minimum ones in the Lowveld (500-700 mm), sheltered to the E by the Lebombo chain.
