As the country’s name suggests, Spanish (Castilian Spanish) is the official language of Spain; however, there are also co-official languages based on region: the Basque language (Euskera), Galician, and Catalan are a few examples of regional-specific co-official languages.

Spain is a country found in the Northern Hemisphere and Western Hemisphere of the globe. As of 2021, Spain has 17 political divisions (called “autonomous communities” in English and “comunidad autónoma” in Spanish): Andalusia, Catalonia, Community of Madrid, Valencian Community, Galicia, Castile and León, Basque Country, Castilla-La Mancha, Canary Islands, Region of Murcia, Aragon, Extremadura, Balearic Islands, Asturias, Navarre, Cantabria, and La Rioja. In addition to these autonomous communities, Spain is further divided into 50 provinces, as of 2021.

Spain is bordered to the west by Portugal; to the northeast it borders France, from which it is separated by the tiny principality of Andorra and by the great wall of the Pyrenees Mountains.
