Know the ‘Stans: Pakistan

The suffix “stan” means “land” in Persian. And so in the same way that many countries end in ‘land (think England, Ireland, Scotland), many countries in Central Asia end with “stan.”

Do you know what the name “Pakistan” means? Did you know that it is also an acronym?

Thank you to Dave from Morocco That Was for the idea behind this graphic.
