#Mongolia is the least densely populated country on earth

A post shared by Lingofacts (@lingofacts) on

The country that is known primarily for Genghis Khan and impressive breeds of horses is also one of the world’s least-densely populated: a mere 1.92 people occupy each square kilometer of this enormous landmass.

The difficulty in occupying much of the land, coupled with the fact that it is bordered by both Russia and China go a long way in justifying its low population density, however, a quickly-growing population could change this nation’s ranking in coming years. Winter in Mongolia is subject to winds coming in from Siberia, making Ulaanbaatar, with an average temperature of -1.3 degrees Celsius, the world’s coldest capital.
