According to russianruby, who sent me this card from Almaty, Kazahkhstan is the 9th largest country in the world and the largest country.

It gained independence in 1991 after the collapse of the USSR and its capital is Astana. Astana is the 2nd largest city in the country and it has been the country’s capital since 1997. Its name literally means “Capital” in Kazakh.

The country is quite large and diverse in types of terrain. It has hills, flatlands, mountains with snow and deserts. Although it’s a very big country it has a low population density (6 people per square kilometre). And it seems there aren’t many cards available as well. :)
