Georgia, a sovereign state in the Caucasus region in Europe, is a representative democracy which gained independence from Russia in 1991 after decades of turbulent fighting and massacres. The land was known as Iberia to the ancient Greeks and the Romans. The country was seized by the Red Army in 1921 and became the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. Georgia declared independence but has continued to struggle to keep its separateness and sovereignty even until now. Tbliisi is the capital.
