Serbia & Montenegro

The name Yugoslavia previously designated six republics (Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia-Herzogovia, Croatia, and Slovenia), but now includes just Serbia and Montenegro. Serbia is a landlocked territory in the Balkan Peninsula of Eastern Europe and Montenegro is to the west of Serbia.

The 2000 estimate for Serbia’s population was 9,981,929, and for Montenegro 680,158. However, these numbers are Serbia & Montenegro2uncertain due to forced dislocation and ethnic cleansing.

Sixty-five percent of the population belongs to the Eastern Orthodox Church. Nineteen percent are Muslim (most of these people live in Kosovo, and the majority are Sunni, although there are some Shi’ite as well); 4 percent are Roman Catholic; 1 percent are Protestant; and the remaining 11 percent practice other religions.
