'''Kyrgyzstan''' ( Landlocked and mountainous, Kyrgyzstan is bordered by Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, Tajikistan to the southwest and China to the east. Its capital (Capital city) and largest city (List of cities in Kyrgyzstan) is Bishkek.
Kyrgyzstan's history spans over 2,000 years and encompasses a wide variety of cultures and empires, including Persian, Mongol, Russian, and Soviet. Although geographically isolated by its highly mountainous terrain – which has allowed for the preservation of its ancient culture – Kyrgyzstan has historically been at the crossroads of several great civilizations, namely as part of the Silk Road and other commercial and cultural routes. Though long inhabited by a succession of independent tribes and clans, Kyrgyzstan has periodically come under foreign domination due to its strategic location, attaining sovereignty as a nation-state only after the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Since independence, Kyrgyzstan has officially been a unitary (Unitary state) parliamentary republic, although it continues to endure ethnic conflicts, Kyrgyzstan is a member of the Commonwealth of Independent States, the Eurasian Economic Union, the Collective Security Treaty Organization, the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation, the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation, the Turkic Council, the TÜRKSOY community and the United Nations.
Ethnic Kyrgyz (Kyrgyz people) make up the majority of the country's 5.7 million people, followed by significant minorities of Uzbeks and Russians. The official language, Kyrgyz (Kyrgyz language), is closely related to the other Turkic languages, although Russian (Russian language) remains widely spoken, a legacy of Russification. The majority of the population (64 percent) are nondenominational Muslims. "Chapter 1: Religious Affiliation". The World's Muslims: Unity and Diversity.
