Turkmenistan is one of the Turkish states found in Central Asia. It is bordered by Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Afghanistan, Iran and the Caspian Sea. In medieval times, Turkmenistan was an important stopping point on the “Silk Road” a road used for trade with China. Modern-day Turkmenistan enjoys the fourth largest reserves of natural gas in the world, but the country’s geography makes it undesirable as it is mostly covered by the Karakum Desert, one of the driest deserts in the world.
