Location of Estonia

Estonia is a country in the Baltic region of Northern Europe.[1] It is a developed country with an advanced, high-income economy that as of 2011 is among the fastest growing in the EU.[2] Its Human Development Index ranks very highly,[3] and it performs favourably in measurements of economic freedom, civil liberties and press freedom (3rd in the world in 2012 and 2007).[4] The 2015 PISA test places Estonian high school students 3rd in the world, behind Singapore and Japan.[5] Citizens of Estonia are provided with universal health care,[6] free education[7] and the longest paid maternity leave in the OECD.[8] Since independence the country has rapidly developed its IT sector, becoming one of the world's most digitally advanced societies.[9] In 2005 Estonia became the first nation to hold elections over the Internet, and in 2014 the first nation to provide E-residency.
