South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea, occupies the southern half of the Korean Peninsula. It is bordered to the north by North Korea, to the west by the Yellow Sea, to the east by the Sea of Japan, and to the south by the Korea Strait.
It covers a total area of 100,210 km² and has a population of 50,004,441. Despite being almost entirely mountainous in landscape, South Korea is the twentieth most populated country in the world. Only 30% of its territory is fit for cultivation. At 1,950 m, the highest peak is the inactive volcano Hallasan, located on the largest South Korean island of Jeju-do, which covers 1,845 km². The country has a temperate, oceanic climate. The capital is Seoul and the local currency is the Korean Won.
South Korea’s economy is based on manufacturing, above all electrical manufacturing; this has attracted a lot of attention from many major international producers, who have since established headquarters in the country. There is also a well-developed transport industry. The official language is Korean.
