Turkmenistan (formerly Turkmenia) is bounded by the Caspian Sea in the west, Kazakhstan in the north, Uzbekistan in the east, and Iran and Afghanistan in the south. About nine-tenths of Turkmenistan is desert, chiefly the Kara-Kum, one of the world's largest sand deserts - it is approximately 360,000 sq. km. Turkmenistan was once part of the ancient Persian Empire.
Turkmenistan has been at the crossroads of civilisations for centuries. In medieval times, Merv was one of the great cities of the Islamic world and an important stop on the Silk Road, a caravan route used for trade with China until the mid-15th century. Turkmenistan possesses the world's fourth largest reserves of natural gas resources. Since 1993, citizens have received government-provided electricity, water and natural gas free of charge.
