Citizens and nationalities of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan are referred to collectively as Pakistanis. Pakistan's population was estimated to be over 213 million at the time of the country's most recent national census in 2017, placing it as the fifth most populated nation on the planet. The majority of Pakistanis are native speakers of languages that are classified as belonging to either the Indo-Aryan or Iranian language family.

With an estimated population of 4.7 million, this South Asian nation is also the origin of a sizeable diaspora, the majority of which may be found in the Arab nations that surround the Persian Gulf. There are an estimated 2.4 million Pakistanis living in Northwest Europe and Western Europe, with the majority of these people calling the United Kingdom home. This makes the United Kingdom home to the second biggest Pakistani diaspora after South Asia.
