The preliminary results of the 2018 National Census have been released. According to the Ministry of Population and Health, the current population of Gerenia is 8,111,839--a 9.18% increase since June 2017. The results show that Gerenia's population growth rate is slowing down due to less people emigrating from Meeredres. Still, a positive difference between birth and mortality rate, emigration from Libertas, incorporation of peoples from "The Green", and immigration from other MCS-recognised nations causes the population to keep growing.

Related to the census data, there's this image I took from a study today:

Image

The graphic shows the evolution of Gerenia's total land area (green line) and population (blue line) through the country's history, beginning with the date of Gerenia's foundation (t=0), and relative to that moment. The population, as some of us have witnessed during all these years, had a rather slow increase until around t=3.5 yrs, which corresponds to the end of 2015, when Trans-Samarne and East Gerenia were established. From that point, the population grew at a higher rate. The population today is almost twice the one at the time of Gerenia's foundation. As for the total area, it must be clarified first that all the figures correspond to the territory recognised by the MCS via the proper claims. Therefore, the depression we see in (more or less) 1.5<t<2.5 reflects the shrinkage of Gerenia's presence in the MCS Claimsmap, which does not mean that Gerenians stopped living in the lands "lost". (Also note that the 2014 census [t=2 yrs] includes data from those "lost" lands.) Having said this, I think the depression may be ignored, and consider that Gerenia's land area remained relatively constant until, again, t=3.5 yrs. After that, Gerenia's size increased notably through successive expansions in Keltia as well as in Apollonia. The same as with the population, Gerenia's area today is roughly twice the area it had in mid-2012.

Population density (orange, dotted line) had a small overall increase in 0<t<3.5, from 7.6 to 8.1 per sq. km, then it increases by t=4 yrs (when Gerenian South Keltia was founded; the population grew faster than the area), and since then it begins to decline (the area grows faster than the population). It should be noted that the country's density has returned to the levels it had back in 2012.

"Breaking" the plots into two parts allow us to distinguish two periods in Gerenia's history, at least from an area-population point of view: a period of slow growth in early history, and a period of fast growth in recent history. Scholars unanimously divide Gerenia's history in two periods, as well, namely: a period of "formation of the State", and a period of "economic and territorial expansion". If we now take into account that the formation (and consolidation) of the Gerenian State began with its foundation and finished c. 2015, when the MCS Claimsmap showed the border that the country had before the anarchy period, and that the economic and territorial expansion followed the consolidation of the State, then we can say that each part of the plot matches the historical periods mentioned above. And that is because the policies and events in each period determined the evolution of both the area and the population (and the relations between them, but I prefer that part to be explained by the scholars).

One last, little thing before leaving: according to the a projection made by the Ministry of Population and Health, Gerenia's population will reach 9.6 million by June/July 2019 (t=7 yrs). That is exactly twice the population in 2012. And the total area in one year will be...?
