The short answer according with the Bible is that only Satan and his angels will inhabit the earth during this time (Rev 20:1-3), no one else will be alive on earth during the 1000 years. The prophet Jeremiah makes it abundantly clear that during this time no humans will be on earth (Jer 4:23-26). 

The 1000-year period that Christians generally refer to as "the millennium" is the period between the first resurrection (Rev 20:5, 6) and the second resurrection (John 5:28, 29). Simply said, the resurrection of the saved begins the 1000 years while the resurrection of the unsaved ends the 1000 years. 

Here is what the Bible say about these events: 

The second coming of Jesus for His saints (Rev 16:18-21; Matt 24:30, 31).
The saved dead raised to life and given immortality (1 Thess 4:16; 1 Cor 15:51-55).
The righteous caught up into the clouds (1 Thess 4:17).
The living wicked slain by the Lord (Isaiah 11:4).
The unsaved dead remain in their graves until the end of the 1000 years (Rev 20:5).
Satan bound for 1000 years on earth (Rev 20:1-3).
God’s people enjoy eternity with God on the new earth (Rev 21:2-4).

Jesus’ return with His saints (Zech 14:5).
Holy city settles on the Mount of Olives (Zech 14:4, 10).
The Father, His angels, and all of righteous come with Jesus (Rev 21:1-3; Matt 25:31; Zech 14:5).
The wicked dead are raised and Satan is loosed (Rev 20:5, 7).
Satan tries deceives the entire world - the wicked surround the holy city and are destroyed by fire (Rev 20:8, 9). 

And finally, God's people enjoy eternity with Jesus.
