Background: The Swiss Confederation was founded in 1291 as a defensive alliance among three cantons. In succeeding years , other localities joined the original three. The Swiss Confederation secured its independence from the Holy Roman Empire in 1499. A constitution of 1848 , subsequently modified in 1874 , replaced the confederation with a centralized federal government. Switzerland's sovereignty and neutrality have long been honored by the major European powers , and the country was not involved in either of the two World Wars. The political and economic integration of Europe over the past half century , as well as Switzerland's role in many UN and international organizations , has strengthened Switzerland's ties with its neighbors. However , the country did not officially become a UN member until 2002. Switzerland remains active in many UN and international organizations but retains a strong commitment to neutrality.
