There have already been several strong earthquakes in this region. Deserts meet in the east and south. In the south there is the coast of the Indian Ocean. The sea sometimes floods the land.

Almost all residents are Muslims. Islam is even encouraged by the state, so it is the religion of the state. Thus, the country is called the "Islamic Republic". Pakistan has often been ruled by the army in its history. But from time to time he also supported Islamist terrorists.
