The smallest of the Balkan states, Albania (Shqipni) lies between Greece and Yugoslavia on the Adriatic coast. It declared independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912, but underwent many political changes before coming under communist control in 1944. Mountainous terrain has hindered both agriculture and industry, making it Europe's poorest nation. Area: 11,097 square miles. Language: Albanian. Capital: Tirane.

Monetary Systems:

1925 to 1931: 100 Qindar Leku = 1 Frang Ar
5 Lek = 1 Frang Ar

1935 to 1938: 100 Qindar Ar = 1 Frang Ar

1939 to 1943: 1 Lek = 1 Lira
