Kazakhstan

'''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. Zarakhovich, Yuri (27 September 2006). "Kazakhstan Comes on Strong", Time Magazine.

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.
