Swiss cantons

A list of the cantons, along with their capital, population, and official languages follows, in alphabetical order
The federal constitution in Switzerland states that the cantons are sovereign to the extent that it is not covered by federal law, meaning the areas of the law that are not specifically national laws are to be determined by the cantons. The cantons are responsible for health, welfare, police, education, and taxation. The degree of autonomy of cities differs from canton to canton, but cities are almost always allowed to levy municipal taxes and pass laws on a municipal level.
