Slovakia is a parliamentary republic. Robert Fico is the prime minister. The National Council of the Slovak Republic makes the laws. The rights of Slovakia are about the same as the United States. Slovakia was in is i the United Nations since 1993.

Economy

Slovakia uses euro as its currency and it is $1.11 in the United States. I choose this background because most of Slovakia's major exports are made out of steel like cars and doors. The gdp per capita is 18,047. Compared to the United States Slovakia would be poor because 18,047 is way less than 53,042.
