Albania is partly a broad and swampy coastal plain fronting the Adriatic Sea. From there, making up roughly 70% of the country, the land rises into hills and mountains.
Major ranges include the Albanian Alps, and the Korab and Pindus Mountains. The highest point is Mt. Karabit in the Korab mountains, which runs along and through the Macedonia border, at 9,066 ft (2,764 m).
From the mountains, flowing inland toward the Adriatic Sea, significant rivers include the Drin and Vlore.
The three major lakes of Albania include Shkodra (shared with Montenegro), Ohrid and Prespa (both shared with Macedonia). Lake Ohrid is the deepest lake in the Balkans, and reaches depths of 935 ft (284 m).

What is a Puppet Government?
A "puppet state" is a government that has little will of its own, as it needs financial backing or military support. Thus, it acts an a subordinate to another power in exchange for its own survival. The puppet government still holds its own facade of an identity, perpetuated by retaining its own flag, name, national anthem, law, and constitution. However, these type of governments are not considered as legitimate according to international law.
