Le Bhoutan est un petit pays enclavé, coincé entre les deux puissances économiques que sont l'Inde et la Chine. Il s'étend sur 38 394km2, ce qui est légèrement plus petit que la Suisse. En 2020, la population s'élevait à 771 612 habitants, et même si ce chiffre a triplé depuis 1960, il représente toujours moins de 10% de la population de la Suisse actuelle. Géographiquement, le pays comprend des contreforts et des terrains de haute montagne dans l'Himalaya oriental. Sur le plan administratif, il est divisé en vingt dzongkhag (districts).

Ugyen WANGCHUCK - who had served as the de facto ruler of an increasingly unified Bhutan and had improved relations with the British toward the end of the 19th century - was named king in 1907. Three years later, a treaty was signed whereby the British agreed not to interfere in Bhutanese internal affairs, and Bhutan allowed Britain to direct its foreign affairs.
