Mongolia

By, Brad, Zach H, Zack C, Josef

WHERE IS MY COUNTRY LOCATED
My country is located between the Russian

Federation and the Peoples Republic of China. The country has an area of 604,246 square miles, slightly smaller than the state of Alaska.

LANDSCAPE
The landscape in Mongolia is a very good place

to go sight seeing. This landscape is full of cool and amazing valleys and hills.

WATERWAYS

Mongolia has 397 kilometers of navigable waterways, primarily on Hovsgol Nuur and on the Selenge Moron, which are passable only five months of the year. These water routes were used to transport cargo, grain, agricultural machinery, industrial equipment, lumber, consumer goods, and fuel to and from the Soviet Union.

PRECIPITATION

CLIMATE

Mongolia is high, cold, and dry. It has an extreme continental climate with long, cold winters and short summers, during which most precipitation falls. The country averages 257 cloudless days a year, and it is usually at the center of a region of high atmospheric pressure. Precipitation is highest in the north, which averages 20 to 35 centimeters per year, and lowest in the south.

PEOPLE

GOVERNMENT
Mongolia in 1989 was a communist state

modeled on Soviet political and government institutions. The government was a one party system, presided over by the Mongolian People's Revolutionary Party. Currently Mongolia’s political system is a parliamentary republic.

POPULATION

The population in Mongolia was estimated at 2,632,387 in 2008 and the US was estimated at 304,060,000 so as you can tell there is way more people in the US than in Mongolia.

RELIGION

DIALECT

The dialect in Mongolia is Khalkha. Over 90% of the Mongolia’s residents speak it. There are over 5.7 million people speaking it in the world today.

ECONOMY / EDUCATION
ECONOMY-The economy in Mongolia is mainly centered on agriculture and mining. Some of the main things they mine are copper, coal, molybdenum, tin, tungsten and gold which account for a large part of the industrial production. EDUCATION-During the state socialist period, education was one of the areas of significant achievement in Mongolia. Illiteracy was virtually eliminated, in part through the use of seasonal boarding schools for children of nomadic families. Funding to these boarding schools was cut in the 1990s, contributing to slightly increased illiteracy.

HEALTHCARE

Mongolia's government has made great efforts to provide modern medical care to the inhabitants. In the 1980s, medical care was free and was provided through a hierarchy of clinics and hospitals. In rural areas, the lowest level of the system was a medical station, staffed by a physician's assistant, serving people within a thirty- to forty-kilometer radius. Since 1990, key health indicators like life expectancy and infant and child mortality have steadily improved, both due to social changes and to improvement in the health sector.
