HistoryEdit

The Swiss Confederacy was officially formed on August 1, 1291, which is now celebrated ass Swiss National Day. Switzerland began by uniting other cities to fight with each other. Over time, this became into a large unified state, which now stands as the current Swiss territory.

Moreover, the Calothic areas joy of senuality, and public amuesments were not tolerated. Thus, the Reformation did not bring about more freedom neither privately nor politically.
