    Kazakhstan is the ninth largest nation in the world and possesses huge oil and gas reserves.

    The country is also a major polluter. Recently, however, it has made headlines for environmentally friendly initiatives, with a new subway line being installed in the capital and the government arranging for bike lanes on the country's roads.
