India's climate is strongly influenced by the Himalayas and the Thar Desert, both of which drive the monsoons. India's forest cover ranges from the tropical rainforest of the Andaman Islands, Western Ghats, and northeastern India to the coniferous forest of the Himalaya. India is the most populous democracy in the world. The Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950. Since its independence in 1947, India has maintained cordial relationships with most nations. According to the International Monetary Fund, India's nominal GDP stood at US$1.3 trillion, which makes it the eleventh-largest economy in the world.
