Nepal (Nepali: नेपाल [neˈpal]), officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a country in South Asia. It is found mainly in the Himalayas, but also includes parts of this Indo-Gangetic Plain. It is the largest country by population and country. It is landlocked, and borders China in the north and India in the south, east and west, while Bangladesh is located within just 27 km (17 mi) of its southeastern tip and Bhutan is separated from it by the Indian state of Sikkim. Nepal has a varied geography, including subalpine forested hills, fertile plains, and eight of the world's ten tallest mountains, including Mount Everest. Kathmandu is the capital and the largest city. Nepal is a multiethnic country with Nepali as the official language. The name"Nepal" is first recorded in texts in the Vedic period of the Indian subcontinent, the era in ancient India when Hinduism was founded, the predominant religion of the country. In the middle of the first millennium BCE, Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, was born in Nepal that was southern. Parts of Nepal were intertwined with the culture of Tibet. The Kathmandu Valley is intertwined with the culture of Indo-Aryans, and was the chair of the Newar confederacy called Nepal Mandala. The traders of the valley dominated the branch of the ancient Silk Road. The cosmopolitan region developed architecture and classic art. By the 18th century, the Gorkha Kingdom achieved the unification of Nepal. The Shah dynasty established the Kingdom of Nepal and formed an alliance under its Rana dynasty of premiers, with the British Empire. The country was never colonized but functioned as a buffer state between Imperial China and British India. Parliamentary democracy was introduced in 1951, but was suspended by Nepalese monarchs, in 2005 and 1960. The Nepalese Civil War in the 1990s and early 2000s resulted in the formation of a secular republic in 2008, ending the world Hindu monarchy. The Constitution of Nepal, adopted in 2015, affirms Nepal as a parliamentary republic divided into seven provinces. Nepal was declared to the United Nations in 1955, and friendship treaties were signed in 1960 with the People's Republic of China and India in 1950. Nepal hosts the permanent secretariat of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC), where it is a founding member. Nepal is the Bay of Bengal Initiative and a member of the Non-Aligned Movement. Nepal's army is the fifth biggest in South Asia; it is notable for its Gurkha history, particularly and has been a contributor to United Nations peacekeeping operations.
