The size of the country also makes it the world's second smallest country; second only to the Vatican City. The country may be small, but it is big among those who love to spend lots of money. It is well known for its Monte-Carlo casinos, car races and the beaches. All of which have been designed to cater to the rich tourists who are known to frequent the city state often.
