Isthmian state of the Central America included between Colombia and the Costa Rica, format from a mountainous narrow strip, that culminates with the Chiriquì Mont to 3478 meters msl, wetted to north-west from the Atlantic Ocean and south-east from the Pacific Ocean.
The state is independent from 1903, year in which a territory strip was given to United States of America for the building of the famous channel.
The Channel of Panama is a waterway, that exploiting natural lakes and basins of lifting, puts the Atlantic Ocean in communication with the Pacific Ocean; it artificially cuts the country in two sections.
The channel is source of wealth thanks to the considerable entrances that come from the transit rights and the free zone of Colon, where there are more than 1500 commercial enterprises.
After the long military dictatorship of the General Noriega, today Panama is a democratic Republic, where the army was abolished.
