The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a federal parliamentary republic with Islam as its state religion. It is a country situated in South Asia that overlaps with the Greater Middle East. Pakistan achieved its independence on 14th August, 1947, as a result of the division of former British India.
The capital of Pakistan is Islamabad, located in the lower regions of Himalayas in the northern part of the nation, and its largest city is Karachi, in the south on the shoreline of the Arabian Sea. It has a thousand-kilometer of coastline along the Arabian Sea in the south. Afghanistan and Iran are toward the west, India toward the east, and the People’s Republic of China in the far upper east.
Since autonomy, Pakistan has encountered times of huge military and financial development, and times of insecurity, with the withdrawal of East Pakistan (present-day Bangladesh). Pakistan has the seventh biggest military on the planet and is an announced atomic weapons state.
The administrative units of Pakistan consist of four provinces, a capital territory and federally administered tribal areas. Pakistan practices de facto jurisdiction over the western areas of the Kashmir district, sorted out as two separate political bodies (Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas), which are also claimed by India.
The areas and the capital region are partitioned into a sum of 107 regions which contain various tehsils and local governments. The innate zones include seven tribal offices and six small frontier regions disconnected from neighboring regions while Azad Kashmir contains seven districts and Northern Areas involves six districts.
