India is the largest country in the Indian subcontinent in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, and with over a billion people, India is the most populous democracy in the world. It is a constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system consisting of 28 states and 7 union territories. India has been called “the cradle of the human race”,[5] “a cradle of civilisation”,[6] and “the birthplace of Hinduism”.[7] Ind ia has been known by many alternative names, including Aryavarta and Makarand ā tr.[8][9] Ind ia spent over USD 439 billion (2nd largest) on import in 2017 against USD 811 billion (largest) export.[10] Its currency (rupee) is nominally worth 1 USD through its history however currently devalued .
