Balochistan (Balochi, Pashto: بلوچِستان Urdu: بلوچِستان‎ , Balōčistān, pronounced [bəloːt͡ʃɪst̪ɑːn]), is a province of southwestern Pakistan. It spreads primarily along the eastern part of the geographic region of Balochistan. It is the largest of Pakistan's four administrative provinces in terms of area, constituting approximately 44% of the country's total land mass, and the smallest in terms of population, being home to less than 5% of the country's population. Balochistan province is bordered by Afghanistan to the north and north-west, Iran to the south-west, the Arabian Sea to the south, Punjab and Sindh to the east, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Federally Administered Tribal Areas to the north-east. Quetta is the capital and largest city of Balochistan.

The name Balochistan means "the land of the Baloch" in many regional languages.
