Inner Mongolia (Mongolian: s , Öbür Monggol and c , Övör Mongol; , but officially romanized to Nei Mongol) is an autonomous region of the People's Republic of China, located in the northern region of the country. Inner Mongolia shares an international border with the countries of Mongolia and the Russian Federation. Its capital is Hohhot and the largest city is Baotou.

Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region was established in 1947 on the area of former Republic of China provinces of Suiyuan, Chahar, Rehe, Liaopeh and Hsingan.

It is the third-largest subdivision of China spanning about 1,200,000 km2 (463,000 sq mi) or 12% of China's total land area. It has a population of about 24 million as of 2004.

The majority of the population in the region are Han Chinese, with a substantial Mongol minority. The official languages are Chinese and Mongolian, the latter written in the Mongolian script, as opposed to the Mongolian Cyrillic alphabet used in the Mongolian state.
