'''Turkey''' (

Turkey has been inhabited since the paleolithic age (paleolithic),

Starting from the late 13th century, the Ottomans united Anatolia and created an empire encompassing much of Southeastern Europe (Southeast Europe), Western Asia and North Africa, becoming a major power in Eurasia and Africa during the early modern period. The empire reached the peak of its power between the 15th and 17th centuries, especially during the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent (r. 1520–1566). After the second Ottoman siege of Vienna (Battle of Vienna) in 1683 and the end of the Great Turkish War in 1699, the Ottoman Empire entered a long period of decline (Decline of the Ottoman Empire). The Tanzimat reforms of the 19th century, which aimed to modernize the Ottoman state, proved to be inadequate in most fields, and failed to stop the dissolution of the empire (Dissolution of the Ottoman Empire).

Turkey is a democratic (democracy), secular (secular state), unitary (unitary state), constitutional republic (Republic) with a diverse cultural heritage (Multiculturalism).
