Literature, poetry, and music have traditionally been important to the culture. Economy: 4 th highest GDP in the world, diverse economy based on machinery, autos, electronics, and medical equipment. Large deposits of coal, iron ore, and other minerals. Issues and Challenges: The country s changing population (low birthrates, longer life expectancies, and large # of immigrants) is an issue.
