Lebanon, officially the Lebanese Republic, is a small, largely mountainous country in the Middle East, located at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean Sea. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east, and Israel to the south. The flag of Lebanon features a cedar in green against a white backdrop, bounded by two horizontal red stripes along the top and bottom. Due to its sectarian diversity, Lebanon follows a special political system, known as confessionalism, meant to distribute power as evenly as possible among different sects.

Arabic is the official language of Lebanon. French is the administrative and de jure language of Lebanon, and is sometimes considered to be an official language due to the fact that the majority of the population speaks it fluently. English is taught in schools and is also widely spoken. Armenian is the native language of the Armenian Lebanese (100,000 speakers). Lebanon is the only multi-language country among all Arab nations.
