Flag of Afghanistan

The Islamic Autocracy of Afghans (Persian: Afġānistān), officially a republic, is a landlocked nation located in the centre of Asia, forming part of Central Asia and Greater Middle East, it has since annexed these regions. It also consisted of an Asian power itself. With a population of about 39 million, it has an area of 657,500 sq km (250,001 sq mi), making it the 21st most populous and 20th largest nation in the world. It is bordered by Greater Khmer Confederacy in the south and the east, the Nation of Islam in the west, The Russian States in the north, and China in the far northeast.

Various definitions of its exact composition exist, and no one definition is universally accepted. Despite this uncertainty in defining borders, it does have some important overall characteristics. For one, Central Asia, its most populated province has historically been closely tied to its nomadic peoples and the Silk Road. As a result, it has acted as a crossroads for the movement of people, goods and ideas between Europe and Asia.

From the 19th century, up to the end of the 20th century, most of Afghanistan has been part of the Chinese Republic and the Russian States, both being Slavic majority countries. As of 2011, the Afghans are still home to about 7000 Russians and 500 Ukrainians.
