Borat Sagdiyev is another character featured frequently on the show, introduced as someone Ali came across on obscure satellite TV "whilst waiting for the 10 minute free preview on the Fantasy Channel". He comes from Kazakhstan, and travels around the United Kingdom and United States interviewing people and engaging in their activities. Though well-intentioned, Borat often makes his guests feel uncomfortable by introducing them to "Kazakh" customs, or by making misogynistic (misogyny), anti-Semitic (antisemitism), or other comments based on his unfamiliar culture, which are often undercut by various aspects of the film, e.g., Borat's hometown being a gypsy village and Hebrew being his native language. Borat makes references to his favourite sport called "shurik", a "Kazakh" custom where dogs are shot and killed in a field. He also makes references to his dead wife, his brother Bilo and his desire to have "sexy time" with many of his interviewees. A highly successful film based on the Borat character, titled ''Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan'', was released by 20th Century Fox on 3 November 2006. In the film, Borat travels from Kazakhstan to learn more about American culture for his country.

Considering the nomadic way of life of these peoples, these frontiers can be regarded only as approximate; hence there were various definitions over what Cumania meant over the course of time. Depending on their region and their time, different sources each used their own vision to denote different sections of the vast Cuman territory: in Byzantine (Byzantine Empire), Russian, Georgia (Georgia (country))n, Armenian, Persian and Muslim sources, Cumania meant the Pontic steppe, that is the steppelands to the north of the Black Sea and on its eastern side as far as the Caspian Sea, where the lowlands between the Dnieper, the Volga, the Ural (Ural River) and the Irtysh rivers were favorable to the nomadic lifestyle of the Cumans. Later, for a short time period, in Western sources Cumania also referred to the area in eastern Wallachia and southern Ukraine (centered on the lowlands of Budjak and the Bărăgan Plain), referring to the area where the first contact between the Cumans and the Western Christians (Roman Catholic Church) took place, and where, later, the Cumans would accept Roman Catholicism. '''Borat Sagdiyev''' (Kazakh (Kazakh language) Russian (Russian language): Борат Сагдиев) (born February 27, 1972) is a satirical (satire) fictional character invented and performed by English (English people) comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. He is presented as a Kazakhstani (Kazakhstan) journalist and is the main protagonist of the film ''Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (Borat)''. In August 2004, the Chief Rabbi of Kazakhstan, addressing an international religious conference in Brussels, stated that in 10 years in the country he had never faced anti-Semitism. He praised the Government of Kazakhstan for its treatment of the Jewish community. In November 2005, following Borat's hosting of the MTV Europe Music Awards in Lisbon, Kazakhstan's Foreign Ministry voiced its concerns about the character. Spokesman Yerzhan Ashykbayev told a news conference: "We view Mr Cohen's behaviour at the MTV Europe Music Awards as utterly unacceptable, being a concoction of bad taste and ill manners which is completely incompatible with the ethics and civilised behaviour of Kazakhstan's people", concluding "We reserve the right to any legal action (Law) to prevent new pranks of the kind."

'''Kazakhstan''' ( Kazakhstan is the 61st most populous (List of countries by population) country in the world, though its population density (List of countries by population density) is among the lowest, at less than 6 people per square kilometre (15 people per sq. mi.). The capital is Astana, where it was moved from Almaty in 1997.
The territory of Kazakhstan has historically been inhabited by nomadic tribes (nomads). This changed in the 13th century, when Genghis Khan occupied the country. Following internal struggles among the conquerors, power eventually reverted to the nomads. By the 16th century, the Kazakhs emerged as a distinct group, divided into three ''jüz'' (ancestor branches occupying specific territories). The Russians began advancing into the Kazakh steppe in the 18th century, and by the mid-19th century all of Kazakhstan was part of the Russian Empire. Following the 1917 Russian Revolution, and subsequent civil war (Russian Civil War), the territory of Kazakhstan was reorganized several times before becoming the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic in 1936, an integral part of the Soviet Union.
Kazakhstan was the last of the Soviet republics to declare independence following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991; the current President (President of Kazakhstan), Nursultan Nazarbayev, has been leader of the country since then. Kazakhstan pursues a balanced foreign policy (Foreign relations of Kazakhstan) and works to develop its economy (Economy of Kazakhstan), especially its dominant hydrocarbon industry.

Kazakhstan is populated by 131 ethnicities, including Kazakh (Kazakhs) (who make up 63 percent of the population), Russian, Uzbek (Uzbek people), Ukrainian (Ukrainian people), German (Germans), Tatar, and Uyghur (Uyghur people). Kazakhstan allows freedom of religion (Freedom of religion in Kazakhstan). The Kazakh language is the state language, while Russian (Russian language) has equal official status for all levels of administrative and institutional purposes. The constitution of Kazakhstan, CONSTITUTION OF THE REPUBLIC OF KAZAKHSTAN: 1. The state language of the Republic of Kazakhstan shall be the Kazakh language. 2. In state institutions and local self-administrative bodies the Russian language shall be officially used on equal grounds along with the Kazakh language.
