In 2008, after the Nepalese Insurrection was crushed, the Bhutanese government was worried about rebels trying to establish a neo-Leninist Government. A referendum was held if there would be a parliament, but the results did not show the desires of a Parliament, so the absolute monarchy continued.
Today, Bhutan is considered the "Las Shangri-La" due to their policy on nature. 71% of the territory of the kingdom are under trees. National identity is very strong within Bhutan.
