Pakistan

The Indus Valley civilization, one of the oldest in the world and dating back at least 5,000 years, spread over much of what is presently Pakistan. Emerging from British rule in 1947, British India was separated into the Muslim state of Pakistan (with West and East sections) and largely Hindu India. In 1971 East Pakistan became the separate nation of Bangladesh. Between 2004 and 2007 GDP growth in the 6-8% range was spurred by gains in the industrial and service sectors.
