Facts

Economy
Booming oil-dominated economy with reserves under the Caspian Sea. Baka was the world's original oil-boom city over a century ago. The glut of oil money enriches an elite few, while 40% of the population live in poverty. The government is proud of having reduced this number significantly in the last few years. A post-Communist market economy is marred by widespread corruption, bureaucracy, a declining agricultural sector and the draining effect of the long-term standoff with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh.
