Cyprus

The Republic of Cyprus is an island in the Mediterranean Sea with a population of some 1.1 million people and a capital at Nicosia.

Cyprus was under British control from 1878 until it became an independent country in 1960. Cyprus was partitioned in 1974 with Turkish Cyprus in the north and Greek Cyprus to the south.

Tourism is the mainstay of the Cyprus economy and recent finds of offshore natural gas have yet to be explored.
