    Kazakhstan was within the USSR until 1991. Now it is independent and has one of the fastest growing economies among the rest of the former Soviet Republics.

    Although many associate it with the steppe, it's a very diverse country when it comes to landscape. The highest point is 7010m and lowest 130m below sea level. Beautiful mountains and lakes, singing sand dunes, canyons, ice age ash tree groves etc.

    It also is home to wild original varieties of Apples, tulip and other species of Flora. Fauna is very diverse as well, snow leopard and saiga antilopes, endangered species, beluga in Caspian Sea.

    Very rich in natural resources. Almost all of the elements of the Mendeleyev table are present on its territory. Exports wheat, oil and gas, gold, diamonds etc.

    People are very friendly. There are more than 100 different nationalities living in Kazakhstan. Therefore you'll see mixed cultures and traditions.

    The first ever space station is located in the steppes of Kazakhstan.

    It has its problems as well: the shrinking Aral Sea. Years of nuclear tests by USSR left its legacy on the land and people's lives. You can find lots of information on that online.

    Oh, there is lots and lots to tell. But I hope I covered some important parts. Hope this helped. There is more if you check the links below.

    Just in case if you don't know: the 7th Asian Winter Games are to be held 30 January to 6 February 2011 in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan and Almaty, major city.

    Kazakhstan (also spelled Kazakstan, Kazakh: Қазақстан, Qazaqstan, قازاقستان, pronounced [qɑzɑqstɑ́n]; Russian: Казахстан [kəzɐxˈstan]), officially the Republic of Kazakhstan, is a country located in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Ranked as the ninth largest country in the world, it is also the world's largest landlocked country; its territory of 2,727,300 km² is greater than Western Europe.[5][6] It is neighbored clockwise from the north by Russia, China, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, and also borders on a significant part of the Caspian Sea. The capital was moved in 1997 from Almaty, Kazakhstan's largest city, to Astana.

    Vast in size, the terrain of Kazakhstan ranges from flatlands, steppes, taigas, rock-canyons, hills, deltas, and snow-capped mountains to deserts. With 16.2 million people (2010 census).[7] Kazakhstan has the 62nd largest population in the world, though its population density is less than 6 people per square kilometre (15 per sq. mi.).

    For most of its history, the territory of modern-day Kazakhstan has been inhabited by nomadic tribes. By the 16th century the Kazakhs emerged as a distinct group, divided into three hordes. 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, the territory of Kazakhstan was reorganized several times before becoming the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic in 1936, a part of the USSR. During the 20th century, Kazakhstan was the site of major Soviet projects, including Khrushchev's Virgin Lands campaign, the Baikonur Cosmodrome, and the Semipalatinsk "Polygon", the USSR's primary nuclear weapon testing site.

    Kazakhstan declared itself an independent country on December 16, 1991, the last Soviet republic to do so. Its communist-era leader, Nursultan Nazarbayev, became the country's new president. Since independence, Kazakhstan has pursued a balanced foreign policy and worked to develop its economy, especially its hydrocarbon industry. While the country's economic outlook is improving, President Nazarbayev maintains strict control over the country's politics. Nevertheless, Kazakhstan's international prestige is building.[8] It is now considered to be the dominant state in Central Asia.[9] The country is a member of many international organizations, including the United Nations, the Euro-Atlantic Partnership Council, the Commonwealth of Independent States, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. Kazakhstan is one of six post-Soviet states who have implemented an Individual Partnership Action Plan with NATO. In 2010, Kazakhstan is chairing the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

    Kazakhstan is ethnically and culturally diverse, in part due to mass deportations of many ethnic groups to the country during Stalin's rule. Kazakhs are the largest group. Kazakhstan has 131 nationalities including Kazakh, Russian, Ukrainian, Uzbek and Tatar. It has a population of 16.2 million, of whom around 63% percent are Kazakhs.[1]

    Kazakhstan allows freedom of religion, and many different beliefs are represented in the country. Islam is the religion of about two-thirds of the population, and Christianity the faith of most of the remainder. The Kazakh language is the state language, while Russian is also officially used as an "equal" language (to Kazakh) in Kazakhstan's institutions.
