The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal is a small mountainous country in southern Asia, near India. Mount Everest, the world's tallest mountain, is located on Nepal's border with Tibet, a possession of China. A monarchy throughout its history, Nepal became a republic in 2006 after a decade-long civil war initiated by Nepal's communist party. The reigning monarch abdicated, and a republic was created in 2008.
