With over 1.2 billion people, India is the second most populous country and the largest democracy in the world (the United States has about 315 million).  India is the 7th largest country by area.  India has more than 27 cities with populations in excess of one million (2001), yet nearly 70% of the Indian population is rural.  India possesses a large, ethnically, linguistically, and religiously diverse population with numerous dense urban centers.
