Located in a narrow corridor of land overlooking the Arabian Sea and surrounded by imposing neighbors, Pakistan was born as a state to give a politically recognized land to Muslim Indians, in an atmosphere characterized by violent political and religious clashes from the very beginning. Its creation, if on the one hand it contributed to the formation of an identity consciousness among the Muslims present in the country (the “land of the pure”, as it is written in the name of the state itself), on the other hand it did not help to solve the problem of their political unity. Located in two areas distant from each other over 1500 km, subjected to a flow of emigration identifiable with a real exodus, Bangladesh). Since then, relations between the various religious and ethnic components of the country and the internal political situation have been marked by a succession of political crises and military coups. The conditioning exercised by international partners and Asian neighbors, with whom Pakistan has always had antithetical ties, has also grafted onto this difficult internal plot. Each of these, for different reasons, appears to be the protagonist of a particularly hot front: India for the unresolved question of the claim of Kashmir; Afghanistan for its permeable borders, a privileged passage for illicit trafficking in drugs, weapons, consumer goods in the clandestine market, the proceeds of which continue to influence the life of the weak legal economies of these states; lastly, the Western powers which, on the one hand call Pakistan to align itself in the fight against international terrorism and drug trafficking, on the other constitute the main markets for the consumption and sale of what transits illegally from its national borders. Fundamentally agricultural state, folded with its exorbitant population load on the only irrigated plain of the territory, that constituted by the Indo flowing here after being born in Kashmir, Pakistan was also, for several decades, one of the main opium producing countries. Despite the efforts made to reduce the incidence of this cumbersome submerged in economic, social and political life and despite the commitment to guarantee the state full respectability on the international level, the country still seems suspended between divergent interests and forces, therefore far from a a condition of stability deriving from a strong democratic rooting of government practices. According to COUNTRYAAH, Pakistan is a nation in Southern Asia, the capital city of which is Islamabad. The latest population of Pakistan is 220,892,351.

Pakistan has a generally arid climate, with some characteristics similar to those of the Mediterranean, therefore quite distinct from the tropical monsoon climate prevailing in India. On the territory the monsoon influences of the Indian Ocean they arrive very attenuated and are felt above all on the Himalayan slopes (the air masses coming from the SE have now discharged almost all their humidity on India) while Pakistan is open to hot and dry winds from the SW. Practically in summer it rains very little, at least in most of the country. On the other hand, winter precipitations are more relevant, determined by the low pressure regime that forms at the margins of the high continental pressures, as well as in the Mediterranean. Overall annual rainfall varies somewhat from area to area: in the whole central and southern section of the country it does not exceed 400 mm; rise a little in the Punjab (at Lahore 630 mm) and more considerably on the first hills (Rāwalpindi, 1200 mm). On average, however, they rarely exceed 500 mm per year and in some areas they do not even reach 200 mm (Karachi, 100 mm). From the thermal point of view we can speak for Pakistan of a continental-type climate, especially in the Indus plain, where temperatures are high, with significant differences between January (when the cold continental currents are felt from the N) and July.: respectively in Lahore it goes from 17 to 30 ºC; at Multān, further south, from 19 to 32 ºC. In the mountainous areas there are the same seasonal excursions, but with much lower values. There are different conditions in the coastal strip: in Karāchi, due to the mitigating action of the ocean, the temperatures of the cold months are higher with averages of 22-23 ºC and much lower those of the summer months (28 ºC).
