The first states appeared within the territory of the present-day Kyrgyz Republic in the 2nd century B.C. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, in 1991, Kyrgyzstan proclaimed itself an independent and sovereign state known as the Republic of Kyrgyzstan, and since the 5th of May 1993, it has been officially named as the Kyrgyz Republic.
As of June 2010, the Kyrgyz Republic became the first country in the Central Asia to become a democracy and remains a lone democracy in the region. Kyrgyzstan is considered a parliamentary republic and sets the precedent for others in the region with free and fair elections followed by a peaceful transition of power.
