Introduction

The People's Republic of Bangladesh is a country seated in South Asia. With a population over 164 million people, it is the eight-most populous country in the entire world. Interestingly, it is a very small place to live since its land coverage is only 148,000 square kilometers. With a density of 1,100 people per square kilometer, this is the seventh-most densely populated nation in the world.

The bangladeshi economy is quite large. Their GDP (PPP included) is at around $864 billion. However, due to enormous population, it means that their GDP per capita is incredibly low. As of 2019, it is roughly $5,000.
