Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia. Located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe, it is bounded to the west by the Black Sea, to the north by Russia, to the south by Turkey and Armenia, and to the southeast by Azerbaijan. The capital and largest city is Tbilisi. Georgia covers a territory of 69,700 square kilometres (26,911 sq mi), and its 2016 population is about 3.72 million. It is amazing but on this small land there are 26060 rivers and over 40 protected areas. That is why the vast part of the country is occupied by untouched nature. It is a very mountainous country. The Likhi Range divides the country into eastern and western halves. The Greater Caucasus Mountain Range forms the northern border of Georgia. Georgia is a unitary, semi-presidential republic, with the government elected through a representative democracy.
