Introduction

The Republic of Austria is a country located on the terrain of Eastern Alps. As a result, the nation is part of Central Europe. As in the case of Germany, Austria is composed of nine federated states. The land area of Austria covers almost 84.000 square kilometers, which is one of the smallest regions in Europe. Interestingly, the official language in Austria is German. But in most informal situations the citizens speak Bavarian dialects.

Economy

Austrian economy is relatively high considering the number of citizens and the fairly limited natural resources in the region. Their entire GDP (with PPP included) is a little over $523 billion. Another important indicator of the wealthiness of the nation and every single citizen is the GDP (PPP) per capita. It simply shows the average wealthiness of everyone. In the case of Austria, it is almost $59,000. Interestingly, this number is very high, especially when we compare it to European’s standards, which is around $46,500.

Population

In terms of population, Austria is 15th in Europe. There are approximately 8.7 million people living in these mountainous regions. It means that there are approximately 106 Austrians per square kilometer. It is a very low density.
