Asia

By convention, Asia is considered to be one of the seven continents on the earth, although other models include it with Europe, as they do constitute one landmass, sometimes referring to them both as the continent of Eurasia.

For the purposes of categorization within the WDR Directory of Directories, however, we will consider Asia as being separate from Europe. Its boundaries are culturally determined, as there are no clear geographical divisions, but the general consensus is that Asia is to the east of the Suez Canal, the Ural River, and the Ural Mountains, and south of the Caucasus Mountains and the Caspian and Black Seas. Asia is bordered on the east by the Pacific Ocean, to the south by the Indian Ocean, and to the north by the Arctic Ocean.

Despite being part of the same landmass, Asia varies significantly from Europe in its ethnic groups, cultures, environment, and governmental systems.

When considered as a continent, Asia is the largest and most highly populated continent on the earth, covering 8.8 percent of the earth's total surface area. Asia also has the largest coastline.
