An archipelago of more than 7,000 mountainous islands, the Philippines is the only predominantly Christian nation in Asia. The majority of Filipinos live on the 11 largest islands.

Filipinos, whose diet consists largely of fish and rice, speak any number of approximately 80 dialects. The economy has taken an upturn in recent years due to the success of the textile and electronics industries.
