Pakistan[b] (Urdu: ??????????), officially the Islamic Republic of Pakistan
(Urdu: ??????? ??????? ??????????), is a country in South Asia. It is the world�s
sixth-most populous country with a population exceeding 212,742,631 people.[19] In
area, it is the 33rd-largest country, spanning 881,913 square kilometres (340,509
square miles). Pakistan has a 1,046-kilometre (650-mile) coastline along the
Arabian Sea and Gulf of Oman in the south and is bordered by India to the east,
Afghanistan to the west, Iran to the southwest, and China in the far northeast. It
is separated narrowly from Tajikistan by Afghanistan's Wakhan Corridor in the
northwest, and also shares a maritime border with Oman.

The territory that now constitutes Pakistan was the site of several ancient
cultures and intertwined with the history of the broader Indian subcontinent. The
ancient history involves the Neolithic site of Mehrgarh and the Bronze Age Indus
Valley Civilisation, and was later home to kingdoms ruled by people of different
faiths and cultures, including Hindus, Indo-Greeks, Muslims, Turco-Mongols, Afghans
and Sikhs. The area has been ruled by numerous empires and dynasties, including the
Persian Achaemenid Empire, Alexander III of Macedon, the Seleucid Empire, the
Indian Maurya Empire, the Gupta Empire,[26] the Arab Umayyad Caliphate, the Delhi
Sultanate, the Mongol Empire, the Mughal Empire, the Afghan Durrani Empire, the
Sikh Empire (partially) and, most recently, the British Empire.[27][28] Pakistan is
the only country to have been created in the name of Islam.[27][28] It is an
ethnically and linguistically diverse country, with a similarly diverse geography
and wildlife. Initially a dominion, Pakistan adopted a constitution in 1956,
becoming an Islamic republic. An ethnic civil war and Indian military intervention
in 1971 resulted in the secession of East Pakistan as the new country of
Bangladesh.[29] In 1973, Pakistan adopted a new constitution which stipulated that
all laws are to conform to the injunctions of Islam as laid down in the Quran and
Sunnah.[30]
