A Bit About Mongolia
Mongolia is a landlocked region in the East Asia bordered by Russia and China in the southern eastern and western. It is very near to Russia and Central Asia that gives us an idea of what nearby country influenced their food culture. Ulaanbaatar, the capital and also the largest city, is home to about 45% of the population. Mongolia's political system is a parliamentary republic.
The president is directly elected. The people also elect the deputies in the national assembly, the State Great Khural, which chooses the prime minister, who nominates the Cabinet in consultation with the president. The Khural confirms the ministers. Mongolia's constitution guarantees a number of freedoms, including full freedom of expression and religion. Mongolia has a number of political parties, the biggest are the Mongolian People's Party and the Democratic Party.
Mongolia is often mistakenly called Outer Mongolia. There is an Inner Mongolia within the country of China. The 'Outer' is used to distinguish the two. And in English, going to Outer Mongolia is about the farthest you could possibly go. Yes, that is true.
This unusual country is also known as the "Land of the Eternal Blue Sky" or "Country of Blue Sky" (Mongolian: "Mönkh khökh tengeriin oron") because it has over 250 sunny days a year.
Mongolia is also known as the "Land of the horse" and "Steppe Mongolia" (Mongolian: Talyn Mongol), and Mongols have a reputation for being the best horsemen on Earth. “It is not possible to imagine Mongolian history without horses,” says J. Tserendeleg, president of the Mongolian Association for Conservation of Nature and the Environment. “I think it is not possible to view the future of Mongolia without horses as well. Mongolia is not Mongolia without horses.”
Like to fish? Know that Mongoloia is also a great place to fish for Pike. There are two species found locally Northern Pike (the same as found throughout northern Europe) and Amur Pike. Check out such Mongolian rivers as the Shishgid, Selenge and Onon. Since the local inhabitants have never been keen fisherfolk, the largest fish can often be found in these waters.
Mongolia is ranked as having a lower middle income economy by the World Bank. 24% of the population lives on less than US$25 a day. GDP per capita in 2011 was $3,100. Despite growth, the proportion of the population below the poverty line was estimated to be 36% in 1998, 31% in 2002–2003, 32% in 2008.
