An Island republic in the eastern mediterean. Comprsing mostly of Greek-Cypriots. The Southern part is the Republic of Cyprus and is Greek, the Northern part is occupied illegally by Turkish troops. Cyprus was inhabited by Turkish-Cypriots and Greek-Cypriots, who lived under one Republic. In 1974 the Turkish Government invaded Cyprus and took the Northern (fertile) side. After that Turkish-Cypriots had to move to the North and Greek-Cypriots to the South, these Turkish-Cypriots were joined by illegal settlers from Turkey, who were not Cypriot. The island is still split. The Northern side is only recognised by Turkey. The southern side is still a Repubulic, but has strong affilations with the Greek Motherland. Other Groups such as Latins and Maronites also live in the Southern Greek side (also forced from their homes in the Northern side)
