For the Geo Quiz we are looking for one of the smallest independent states in the world. It is the second smallest country after the Vatican City, nestled on the famous French Riviera. It is decked up Friday for a royal wedding and the guest list for the festivities includes the kings of Spain, Sweden, Lesotho and Belgium, among other high-profile guests. Monaco is the official answer to the Geo Quiz. There is a princely wedding underway between Prince Albert of Monaco and former Olympic swimmer Charlene Wittstock.
