Romania, which joined the European Union in 2007, has a population of about 21.6 million inhabitants. Although the GDP per capita is quite low, Romania is still among the top 50 economic powers in the world. A problem of the Romanian economy is the low economic activity rate, while the unemployment rate is not that high.

The life expectancy is not that high. This may be due to the lack of appropriate sanitation facilities. Furthermore, the pollution in form of GHG is quite high. The school life expectancy is above average and also the literacy rate is quite good. The tertiary education enrolment is not as good as the leading countries in that area.
