Asia is the central and eastern part of Eurasia and world's largest
continent. Defined by subtracting Europe from Eurasia, Asia is either
regarded as a landmass of its own or as part of Eurasia.
The demarcation between Asia and Africa is the isthmus of Suez (though the Sinai Peninsula, being a part of Egypt east of the canal, is often geopolitically considered a part of Africa). The boundary between Asia and Europe runs via the Dardanelles, the Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus, to the Black Sea, the Caucasus Mountains, the Caspian Sea, the Ural River to its source, and the Ural Mountains to the Kara Sea at Kara, Russia.
About 60 percent of the world's human population lives in Asia. Asia as a political division consists of the part of Eurasia and nearby islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans, often excluding Russia.
