Republic of Iraq

Republic of Iraq

From earliest times Iraq was known as Mesopotamia—the land between the rivers—for it embraces a large part of the alluvial plains of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

Iraq, a triangle of mountains, desert, and fertile river valley, is bounded on the east by Iran, on the north by Turkey, on the west by Syria and Jordan, and on the south by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. It is twice the size of Idaho. The country has arid desert land west of the Euphrates, a broad central valley between the Euphrates and the Tigris, and mountains in the Republic of Iraq2northeast.

Iraq’s population was approximately 32 billion in 2014, 99% of which are Muslims. The minority of religions are Christian, Hindu, Buddhist and Jewish.
