Kazakhstan is a landlocked country mostly in Central Asia, with a small part in Eastern Europe. Its capital is Astana, while the largest city and leading cultural and commercial hub is Almaty. Kazakhstan is the world’s ninth-largest country by land area and the largest landlocked country.
It has a population of 20 million and one of the lowest population densities in the world. Ethnic Kazakhs constitute a majority, while ethnic Russians form a significant minority. Officially secular, Kazakhstan is a Muslim-majority country, although ethnic Russians in the country form a sizeable Christian community. Following the collapse of central government in Petrograd in November 1917, the Kazakhs experienced a brief period of autonomy before eventually succumbing to the Bolsheviks′ rule. The Soviet-German War (1941–1945) led to an increase in industrialization and mineral extraction in support of the war effort. In 1947, the USSR, as part of its atomic bomb project, founded an atomic bomb test site near the north-eastern town of Semipalatinsk, where the first Soviet nuclear bomb test was conducted in 1949. Hundreds of nuclear tests were conducted until 1989. The Anti-nuclear movement in Kazakhstan became a major political force in the late 1980s.
Officially, Kazakhstan is a democratic, secular, constitutional unitary republic; Nursultan Nazarbayev led the country from 1991 to 2019. He was succeeded by Kassym-Jomart Tokayev. The president may veto legislation that has been passed by the parliament and is also the commander in chief of the armed forces.
