Foreign and military policy associated with geographic factors ground semi-fixed and to which the State is a unit of study, and the state is in itself a synthesis Bushra Timed stability are heading for rapid changes disparate and varied , Valjeopoltek is the political culture, influenced by geography, an architecture policy states and interpreter for the movement and the subject of political unity form is one of the important topics which followed geopolitical studies to assess the weight of states that the geographical shape affect the steering internal state and foreign policy, either that gives it shape strength strengthen its position, or weaken its strength and steadfastness threatening. The study of the shape property looks practically need because, there are serious attempts to measure forms of political units using different statistical methods, where Bounds wrote that "the geometry of the state represents a less severe problem of one degree than those arise from the geographical extension of her" has expressed a lot of students that figure most often random property have no real significance. In spite of that it is "fair to mention that figure alone does not sign him, the study of the shape property is at the heart of the concerns of science Algiopoltak from which to analyze and link the human interactions and political trends geographical factors semi-fixed.
