Afghanistan is called a 'landlocked' country because it does not have a maritime border with any ocean. It is therefore, 'locked' in land. The entire nation is surrounded by land. Which makes it hard for them to trade transfer or sale goods because it is easier to trade by the ocean that crossing la…nd. (MORE)

It is putatively democratic and goes through the ritual of voting, though with much allegations of fraud. The current government is found acceptable to the United States, which maintains a large military presence in this nation, and was responsible for the unseating of the last government. The Un…ited States is also responsible for making sure that the current government is not overthrown by people who apparently did not find the voting to be equitable, or who disagree with "voting" in general, or desire a return of the former government. Whether that qualifies Afghanistan to be called a "puppet regime" is a matter of opinion, but it is not seriously doubted that there will be a radical change in leadership on the day of U.S. military withdrawal.

Afghanistan's economy is so poor because they depend mainly onoutside business and American money for business, and because ofthe fighting in Afghanistan, their economy is unstable. Take thisas an example: which estate agent would advertise a house whichcould easily be bombed the next day? Most coun…tries go through thisstate of poverty during development, and considering thatAfghanistan was not a particularly rich country before the fightingbroke out they were bound to reach a state of poverty. People believe that Afghanistan has been in it's present situationfor hundreds of years. Afghanistan has not received enough time todevelope and become prosperous as it's surrounding countries. Therehas been constant war. Although, it was once a stunningly beautifulcountry before the Soviet invasion in 1979 and many times before.After the Russian invasion, war has been taking over Afghanistanand ruined it's true beauty. and thewar is sobuety (MORE)
Before the 1970s (before the coup and Russian invasion) it was a developing country on it's way to being a developed country. There were fashion shows, pop music, cars, modern buildings, and people going to work in suits and ties. Then the coup happened and then the Russians invaded and forced every…one to give up their religion and conform to communism. Then the US came and gave weapons to everyone and after the two countries destroyed Afghanistan with their fighting, the Taliban was created to get both the US and Russia out of there. Unfortunately the Taliban oppressed their own people. Now the country is really torn up. I would say it is an underdeveloped country now. Here is video of Afghanistan before the US and Russia (1978 and onward) and before the Taliban (late 80's onward) and before the US again (2001). I hope this helps :0) (MORE)

Yes. When the term "third world" was first coined, it referred to thosecountries outside of the "first world", which were those countriesthat were strongly Westernized and allied with the United States,and outside of the "second world", which were those countries underthe sway of Communism and alli…ed with the Soviet Union. AsAfghanistan was a non-aligned country, it was considered a "thirdworld country". More recently, the term "third world" country hascome to mean that a country is underdeveloped and Afghanistancertainly qualifies under this definition. Large swathes of thecountry are illiterate, there is barely any infrastructure orindustrialization, and there is rampant poverty and starvation. (MORE)

A country is a nation, and Afghanistan predates nations as a placeof settlement by about 50,000 years. At least people have beenknown to live there for about that long. In fact, Afghanistan isthought to be one of the oldest permanent settlement sights known,possibly predating Egypt and Mesopotamia. … The political history of Afganistan is varied, beginning around 550BCE with the First Persian Empire under which the disparate tribesfrom India to modern Greece, and as far south as Egypt wereunified. This continued in 336 BCE under the Macedonian Empire,ruled by Alexander. In 322 BCE, with the death of Alexander, theterritory passed to the Maurya Empire of India and this lasteduntil around 185 BCE. The Mauryan's bumped up against the risingGreco-Bactrian Kingdom, who took over a large part of the Afghanterritory after 180 BCE. For the next 1800 years, Afghanistan andportions of it were passed among many different kingdoms andempires. Among these were the Kushans, Sasanians, Hephthalites,Kabul Shahi, Islamic Empires, Saffarid Dynasty, Samanid Empire,Gaznavids, Ghurids, Kartids, Timurids, Mughals, Hotaki Dynasty, andthe Durrani Dynasty. The Hotaki and Durrani Dynasties mark the beginning of the modernAfghan state with the rise of the Pashtun in 1709. After theAnglo-Afghan War in 1919, King Amanullah began to westernize thegovernment, but his efforts failed because of pressure from Islamicconservatives. During the Cold War, Afghanistan was a bufferbetween much of the confflict between NATO and the Warsaw Pact. The1979 Soviet invasion and war with the (partially) US backedMujahideen (direct lineage of the Taliban), the current war inAfghanistan, and the shaky nature of their government is a directresult of the "political" involvement of the US and Soviet Union inthe area post WW2.

Depends upon whether you're talking about the Afghan Government or the Taliban rebels. Most nations of the world claim to be allies of the Afghan Government, and several are currently supporting it militarily and economically, although quarrels and criticism between them and Mohamed Karsai's Govern…ment do break out from time to time. A few nations take no position on Afghanistan- sometimes, (as with Pakistan), this is because they are heavily infiltrated by Taliban and al-Qaeda terrorist groups and are afraid that declaring support for the Afghan Government would provoke a wave of terrorist reprisals- bombings, mass shootings or even an attempted uprising. Others, such as Iran, secretly admire the Islamic terror networks in their standing up to the West and their support for Sharia Law. They may not openly come out and say so, but may covertly be supplying the extremists with weapons and explosives. No Government in the world would explicitly condone terrorist campaigns, but a few may support them in secret. (MORE)
Very high income. In Afghanistan being poor means you make 1 million dollars a week.
Afganistan is a poor country, burdened with religious bigotry. Industry is almost non existant and the peoples are to toil hard for agriculture in hilly terrains. The GDP, per capita income are very poor. Of late, India and China have come forward for its economic development. However, the talibans …make it well nigh impossible to undertake developmental works there. (MORE)
