Kazakhstan is the country whose freedom was obtained from the Soviet Union, and many changes implemented in the country focus on Islam's religion. This country is not surrounded by water, but it does have an impressive land area. It is a transcontinental country located in Central Asia with a smaller segment west of the Ural in Eastern Europe. Kazakhstan is the largest landlocked country, and it is the ninth biggest country in the world.

The official tongue of the country is Kazakh. It is also the most influential nation of Central Asia economically. It produces around 60 percent of the region's GDP, which is mostly through oil and gas. It is a country with numerous mineral resources. It was the last of the Soviet republics to declare independence during the Soviet Union's termination in 1991.

There are some countries that are called “Muslim countries” because most of the residents in the area are Muslims. The largest Muslim country by land area is Algeria. This has a land area of 2,381,741 km sq.

It should be remembered though that if it would depend on the number of Muslims that are available in one country, Algeria would become 2nd. Kazakhstan is another country that has a large land area but since this is secular, this cannot be the answer.

There are also more Muslims that are available in Indonesia mainly because more than 10% of the Muslims in the world can be found there.

The country that has the largest land area has to be Algeria. If you would check out the largest number of Muslims that are in different countries, Algeria will be second to Indonesia. Indonesia is considered to be a Muslim country and the top country that has a lot of Muslims.

Actually, 13% of the Muslims in the world can be found in Indonesia. The country is very conservative in general. Take note that even though they have some representatives in international beauty contests, they normally do not show ladies on national television showing off some skin. Even wearing swimsuits can be considered taboo in Indonesia.

The correct answer to this question is A, Kazakhstan. This country is located in the Middle East. Kazakhstan is not surrounded by ocean, which means it is landlocked. Though it is not surrounded by ocean, it is surrounded by other countries. The country Kazakhstan has 2.7 million kilometers of land.

This also equates to over 1 million square miles. About 18 million people live in Kazakhstan, where 2/3 of the population are Islamic. 26% of the Kazakhstan population are Christians. With the 2/3 Islamic, Kazakhstan is the most Islamic country. Various denominations of Muslims are in Kazakhstan, which the freedom from Soviet Union allowed them to do.

The answer to this is Algeria. This is a large country with 2,381,741 KM sq. Most of the people who are living in this country are Muslims. Islam is their chosen religion, probably because their leaders are all Muslims. The leaders would like to make sure that they will practice uniformity with the various traditions and festivals that they will celebrate.

This means that the religion that people follow will depend on the Algerian constitution. Even if there are some people who may want to try a different religion, they cannot do it unless they have to do it in secret. Take note that according to their institution, people should all be treated equally.

The largest Islamic country by land area is Kazakhstan which means that A. is the right answer. There are a lot of people who go to different countries in the Middle East but they do not usually make Kazakhstan their choice. This is one country that may not be surrounded by the ocean but it boasts a very large land area.

This is known for having a lot of wildlife. This explains why people from all walks of life dream of going here. There are some areas that are modern like the rest of the world but there are also some areas that are still very traditional by Kazakhstan standards.
