Nepal  

Nepal has undergone immense change over the past year, as King Gyanendra was eventually pressured into reinstating parliament and restoring democracy to the country. Nepal was also declared a secular state in May 2006, and a peace agreement between the 7-party-alliance and the CPN (Maoist) rebels was signed at the end of November 2006.
