A country of ancient traditions, included within the vast Caucasus region, Armenia (Hayastan, named after the mythical founder hero Haykh) has a thousand-year history behind it marked by conflicts and invasions, favored over time even by the narrow borders of the territory. The controversial political, ethnic and religious issues (the Armenians were one of the first peoples to be evangelized, starting from the second century AD, even if the original Christianity, the state religion already in 300 AD, made following doctrinal divergences and schismatic divisions which in turn caused considerable contrasts) have caused intense migratory flows and real diasporas. To these were added the bloody massacres perpetrated in the entire Armenian region first by the Ottomans (1894-96), then by the Young Turks (1909; 1915-20): this genocide, a fundamental part of what has gone down in history as the Armenian question, has never been officially admitted by the Turkish government and continues to be a sensitive issue both internationally and relations between the two countries concerned. To date, it is estimated that Armenians residing at home are about one third of those living abroad. After the dissolution of the Soviet empire, the country maintained economic-military ties with the former great European power. This interchange has contributed to cracking relations with the neighboring Caucasian republics, made difficult also due to the autonomy of some border provinces such as Nagorno-Karabah.. For some time the country has been engaged in the difficult path towards achieving political-economic stability, characterized over the last few decades by trends of the opposite nature such as the dramatic industrial collapse of the 1990s and the surprising economic recovery at the beginning of the millennium. According to COUNTRYAAH, Armenia is a nation in Western Asia, the capital city of which is Yerevan. The latest population of Armenia is 2,963,254.

GEOGRAPHY
The territory, extending over the reliefs of the Little Caucasus, is made up of mountain ranges alternating with plateaus of volcanic formation; it has an average altitude of 1800 m above sea level and culminates at 4090 m above sea level in Mount Aragac. There are numerous sinking pits, the largest of which is occupied by Lake Sevan. The hydrographic network, represented by multiple but short streams, pays tribute to the Caspian Sea through the Kura and the Araks (Aras). The climate is continental, with strong annual excursions and low rainfall (200-300 mm per year, with values ​​of 700 mm only on the highest mountains).
ENVIRONMENT
The steppe predominates, in the less arid areas it is covered by forests (conifers, oaks, birches) and grasslands. The characteristics of the soil and the climatic conditions make it suitable also for the cultivation of wheat, widespread up to high altitudes. The energy crisis that occurred in the 1990s caused intense deforestation, to which were added problems of water pollution due to the spread of toxic substances such as DDT. Furthermore, the intensive use of the Lake Sevan basin for the production of hydroelectric energy has significantly affected the reserves of drinking water. Protected areas cover 8.2% of the territory. In the country there are two national parks and several nature reserves.
