San Marino. There was some stir in San Marino when an Italian researcher found that the country was still formally at war with Sweden. This was because in 1648 San Marino did not sign the Westphalian Peace, which set the stage for the Thirty Years War. The negotiations went on for two years, and when San Marino stopped paying salary to his representative during the negotiations, he took his horse and rode home before the final document was ready. The issue was raised in an entertainment program on Italian TV, where the Swedish ambassador to Rome and a representative of San Marino appeared. They agreed that although the peace treaty had not been signed, there was peace between the two countries. As a symbol, the ambassador handed over a valley horse.
