Georgia

Georgia (transliterated as Sakartvelo) is a Eurasian country in the Caucasus at the east coast of the Black Sea. It is bordered on the north by Russia, on the south by Turkey and Armenia, and on the east by Azerbaijan. A transcontinental country located at the juncture of Eastern Europe and Western Asia, Georgia has extensive sociopolitical and cultural connections to Europe. The territory of modern-day Georgia has been continuously inhabited since the early Stone Age. The classical antiquity saw the rise of the early Georgian states of Colchis and Iberia, which laid foundation to the Georgian culture and statehood. Christianized in the early 3rd century and unified into a single monarchy in 1008, Georgia experienced periods of revival and decline until being fragmentized into several smaller political entities in the 16th century. Imperial Russia acquired Georgian lands in a piecemeal fashion from 1801 to 1866. A short-lived post-Russian revolution nation-state - Democratic Republic of Georgia (1918-1921) - fell to the Bolshevik invasion to be incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1922. Independent again in 1991, after a period of chaos of civil war and severe economic crisis, Georgia stabilized relatively by the late 1990s. The bloodless Rose Revolution of 2003 installed a new, pro-Western reformist government, whose aspirations to join NATO and attempts at bringing the secessionist territories back under Georgia's control has resulted in a deterioration of the relations with Russia. Georgia's landscapes range from alpine in the Caucasus Mountains to subtropical along the Black Sea coast, making the country an attractive location for tourism. Agriculture - especially wine-making traditions - date back to prehistoric times, and still account for an important share of the nation's economy. The recent economic developments brought the country within the scope of major Eurasian energetic projects. Georgia is a representative democracy, organized as a unitary, semi-presidential republic. Georgia is currently a member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States, the World Trade Organization and the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation, and seeks the integration with the European Union and NATO.
