Georgia is a country in the Caucasus region of Eurasia, located at the crossroads of Eastern Europe and Western Asia. The kingdoms of Colchis and Iberia which eventually became the country of Georgia adopted Christianity in the early 4th century, and a unified Kingdom of Georgia reached the peak of its political and economic strength during the 11th and 12th centuries. At the beginning of the 19th century Georgia was annexed by Russia, and, after a brief period of independence following the Russian Revolution of 1917, Georgia was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1921 to be turned into the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. After independence in 1991, post-Communist Georgia suffered from civil unrest and economic crisis until the Rose Revolution of 2003, which allowed a new government to introduce democratic and economic reforms and transform Georgia from an autocracy into a democracy.

Georgia contains two de facto independent regions, Abkhazia and South Ossetia, which gained limited international recognition after the 2008 Russo-Georgian War that was essentially a border conflict. Georgia considers the regions to be part of its sovereign territory under Russian military occupation.
