Mongolia is a landlocked country in Central Asia. It is bordered by Russia to the north and China to the south, east and west. Ulaanbaatar, the capital and also the largest city, is home to about 45% of the population. Mongolia’s political system is a parliamentary republic.
The area of what is now Mongolia has been ruled by various nomadic empires. In 1206, Genghis Khan founded the Mongol Empire, and his grandson Kublai Khan conquered China to establish the Yuan Dynasty. After the collapse of the Yuan, the Mongols retreated to Mongolia. In the 16th and 17th centuries, Mongolia came under the influence of Tibetan Buddhism. At the end of the 17th century, all of Mongolia had been incorporated into the area ruled by the Manchu’s Qing Dynasty. During the collapse of the Qing Dynasty the Mongols established Temporary Government of Khalkha in 1911. On 29 December 1911 Mongolia declared independence from the Qing Dynasty and this National Liberation Revolution ended the Manchu’s rule that lasted 220 years.
The country came under Soviet influence, resulting in the proclamation of the Mongolian People’s Republic as a Soviet satellite state in 1924. After the breakdown of communist regimes in eastern Europe in late 1989, Mongolia had its own democratic revolution in early 1990, leading to a multi-party system, a new constitution of 1992, and transition to a market economy.
Mongolia is the 19th largest country by area and the most sparsely populated independent country in the world, with a population of around 2.9 million people.
It is the world’s second-largest landlocked country after Kazakhstan.
