Much of Kazakhstan are steppes. It also has snow-capped mountains, deserts, hills, taigas, and rock-canyons. It is a sparsely populated country which was traditionally home of nomadic tribes. Russians began occupying the Kazakh steppes from the 18th century and by the mid-19th century, the whole of Kazakhstan was part of the Russian Empire.

Subsequent to the 1917 Russian Revolution, the borders of Kazakhstan was re-drawn a few times before it emerged in 1936 as the Kazakh Soviet Socialist Republic. When the Soviet Union collapsed, Kazakhstan was the last Soviet republic to declare its independence, doing so only on 16 December, 1991. Today it is a republic headed by a president and a prime minister.
