Northern Cyprus

'''Northern Cyprus''' (

Northern Cyprus extends from the tip (Cape Apostolos Andreas) of the Karpass Peninsula in the north east, westward to Morphou Bay and Cape Kormakitis (the Kokkina Erenköy exclave marks the westernmost extent of the area), and southward to the village of Louroujina. A buffer zone (United Nations Buffer Zone in Cyprus) under the control of the United Nations stretches between Northern Cyprus and the rest of the island and divides Nicosia, the island's largest city and capital of both states.

The 1974 coup d'état (1974 Cypriot coup d'état), an attempt to annex the island to Greece, was followed by the Turkish invasion of Cyprus. This resulted in the eviction of much of the north's Greek Cypriot population, the flight of Turkish Cypriots from the south, and the partitioning of the island, leading to a unilateral declaration of independence by the North in 1983. Due to its lack of recognition, Northern Cyprus is heavily dependent on Turkey for economic, political and military support.

Attempts to reach a solution to the Cyprus dispute have been unsuccessful. The Turkish Army maintains a large force in Northern Cyprus. While its presence is supported and approved by the TRNC government, the Republic of Cyprus and the international community regard it as an illegal occupation force, and its presence has been denounced in several United Nations Security Council resolutions.

Northern Cyprus is a semi-presidential (semi-presidential system), democratic republic with an economy that is dominated by the services sector. The economy has seen growth through the 2000s, with the GNP per capita more than tripling, but is held back by an international embargo due to the official closure of the ports in Northern Cyprus by the Republic of Cyprus. The official language is Turkish (Turkish language), with a distinct local dialect (Cypriot Turkish) being spoken. The vast majority of the population consists of Sunni Muslims, while religious attitudes are moderate and secular.
