This sounds like a very desirable place to live. The King of Bhutan , Jigme Singye Wangchuck, also the head of government, and the 4th king since the monarchy was established in 1907. It was his decree, in keeping with Buddhist philosophy, that national happiness was more important than GNP. It is fundamental to the citizens and the king that there be a balance between the economic, social, emotional, spiritual and cultural needs. The king is setting a good example, he has four wives ALL OF WHOM ARE SISTERS. Each has her own palace and each has initiated programs covering things such as Aids, education and women's rights. Like equal time with his highness I suppose. One benefit of this approach to development is an increasing amount of forest cover. It is a law that there remain atleast a 60% forest cover of the counrty's geographical area at all times. If you want to have a winge or whatever, all of the royals numbers are in the front of the phone book. The king was educated in England and India. One schoolmate was a member of Australia's Taltarni Wine family. Taltarni wine is freely available in Bhutan and is a good accompaniment to Yak so the article says.
