Bangladesh is a fertile alluvial plain on the delta of three main rivers, the Ganges, the Brahmaputra and the Meghna. The country covers an area of 144,000 square kilometres (which is about two-thirds the size of Victoria) and has a population of approximately 164.5 million, making it one of the world’s most densely populated countries. Bangladesh is also one of the world’s poorest countries — approximately 41per cent of the population live on less than $1 a day. The tropical monsoons, with heavy summer rains, experienced in Bangladesh are generally accompanied by cyclones and floods, often with catastrophic consequences.
Bangladesh has a rich cultural heritage with literature, poetry and music all playing important roles in Bangladesh society. Folk art is also very common, with weaving and complex needlework finding its roots in traditional Bengali culture. Over 80 per cent of Bangladeshis are Sunni Muslims and the state religion is Islam. Most of the rest of the population are Hindus (9.6 per cent), with other religious minorities including Buddhists and Christians also present.
