Bhutan (Dzongkha: འབྲུག་ཡུལ), officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a country in South Asia, in the Himalayas. Bhutan is a kingdom, and is ruled by the Druk Gyalpo (which means Dragon King). The current king of Bhutan is Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, who has been the king since 2006.

In a general survey in 2006, Bhutan was rated the happiest country in Asia, and the 8th happiest country in the world (maybe the reason could be that Bhutan has rich wildlife, with rare species such as the Golden Langur). Bhutan is a member of the United Nations, and the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC).

Bhutan's currency is Ngultru.
