Evenkia (Russian: Эвенки́я eh-vehn-KEE-yuh) is a vast Siberian region in Krasnoyarsk Krai, the size of Turkey, but with a very sparse population — a mere 0.023 people per km2, less than 20,000 people in total.



Evenkia's population is about 60% ethnic Russian, but is named after its nomadic Evenk minority (~22% of the population).
