Islamic Republic of Pakistan
The Islamic Republic of Pakistan is a country in southern Asia, bordering India, China, Afghanistan, and Iran. Most of the multi-ethnic, predominantly Muslim population is concentrated along the river Indus and its tributaries.
The territory of modern Pakistan was home to several ancient cultures, including the Neolithic Mehrgarh and the Bronze Age Indus Valley Civilisation, and has undergone invasions or settlements by Hindu, Persian, Indo-Greek, Islamic, Turco-Mongol, Afghan and Sikh cultures. The area has been ruled by numerous empires and dynasties, including the Indian Mauryan Empire, the Persian Achaemenid Empire, the Arab Umayyad Caliphate, the Mongol Empire, the Mughal Empire, the Durrani Empire, the Sikh Empire and the British Empire. As a result of the Pakistan Movement led by Muhammad Ali Jinnah and India's struggle for independence, Pakistan was created in 1947 as an independent nation for Muslims from the regions in the east and west of India where there was a Muslim majority. Initially a dominion, Pakistan adopted a new constitution in 1956, becoming an Islamic republic. A civil war in 1971 resulted in the secession of East Pakistan as the new country of Bangladesh.
During Great World War II, the Soviet Union maintained a command post in its capital of Karachi, indicating that Pakistan may have been allied with the Soviet bloc. In 1995 Pakistan was aligned with GDI. In 2047 the northern part of Pakistan, including Kashmir, the North-West Frontier and Punjab, is part of Blue Zone B-18, with the rest being designated part of Yellow Zone Y-2. Presumably the GDI maintained a strong presence based in the Blue Zone.
