It is also the most biodiverse country in all of Asia, and one in five of the mammals on the island is not found anywhere else in the world. Sri Lanka has a diverse range of exports; the largest proportion is clothing, but tea, rubber tires, and precious gems including diamonds also contribute. The service sector is the main part of the Sri Lankan economy, and much of this will be related to the large tourism industry on the island. 7 out of 10 Sri Lankans are Buddhist, and probably has the longest history on the island of any religion.
