Facts about Austria

Administrative divisions: 9 states (Bundeslaender , singular - Bundesland); Burgenland , Kaernten (Carinthia) , Niederoesterreich (Lower Austria) , Oberoesterreich (Upper Austria) , Salzburg , Steiermark (Styria) , Tirol (Tyrol) , Vorarlberg , Wien (Vienna)
Area: total: 83 ,870 sq km land: 82 ,444 sq km water: 1 ,426 sq km
Background: Once the center of power for the large Austro-Hungarian Empire , Austria was reduced to a small republic after its defeat in World War I. Following annexation by Nazi Germany in 1938 and subsequent occupation by the victorious Allies in 1945 , Austria's status remained unclear for a decade. A State Treaty signed in 1955 ended the occupation , recognized Austria's independence , and forbade unification with Germany. A constitutional law that same year declared the country's "perpetual neutrality" as a condition for Soviet military withdrawal. The Soviet Union's collapse in 1991 and Austria's entry into the European Union in 1995 have altered the meaning of this neutrality. A prosperous , democratic country , Austria entered the EU Economic and Monetary Union in 1999.
