Here is Turkmenistan's national anthem: History!
Turkmenistan was once part of the ancient Persian Empire. The territory was ruled by the Seljuk Turks in the 11th century. The Mongols of Ghenghis Khan conquered the land in the 13th century and they dominated the area for the next two centuries, until they were deposed in the late 15th century.Prior to the 19th century, Turkmenia was divided into two lands.In 1868, one part was made part of the Russian Empire and Turkmenia became known as the Transcaspia Region of Russian Turkistan. Turkmenistan was later formed out of the Turkistan Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, founded in 1922, and was made an independent Soviet Socialist Republic on May 13, 1925. It was the poorest of the Soviet republics. Today, Turkmenistan is a poor third-world country, but it has vast resources, such as pertoleum (oil), natural gas, sulfur, and salt.

They get machinery and equipment, chemicals, and food imported into Turkmenistan. Turkmenistan's GDP is $41.51 billion as of 2011. Their GDP per capita is $7,500. Their literacy rate is 98.8%, which tells you that the education in Turkmenistan is good. Natural gas, oil, petroleum products, textiles, and, food processing are their main industries. The Manat is the currency in Turkmenistan. Turkmenistan doesn't have any BIG economic challenges anymore.... they used to when they were part of the Soviet Union and they were just building up on their government. OMG!!!! A LITTLE FLARE!!!! :) If you ever end up going this beautiful country (yes, yes I'm talking about Turkmenistan), you definitely need to go see these amazing places. Many tourist have enjoyed to go see the Darvaza! The Darvaza is a flaming gas crater but, a crater did not not this! The Derweze area is rich in natural gas. While drilling in 1971 geologists accidentally found an underground cavern filled with natural gas. The ground beneath the drilling rig collapsed, leaving a large hole with a diameter of about 50-100 meters. To avoid poisonous gas discharge, it was decided to burn the gas. Geologists had hoped the fire would go out in a few days but it has been burning since 1971 . Locals have named the cavern The Door to Hell! You should go see it during the night! this is one of the few nomads left in Turkmenistan This is an old photograph of a Catholic church in Turkmenistan This is Chorek (Turkmen Bread) being baked in the traditional way A Turkmenistan city, Merv, is famous for their ancient ruins. These ancient ruins are on the Silk Road. Merv is a place where travelers who followed the Silk Road and left evidence of ancient cultures and vanished civilizations. But how? In 1221 after the barbarous attacks of Genghis Khan's armies, Merv was destryoed and fell to the ground. Its ruins became a relic and were named Ancient Merv or Old Merv.
If you like nature and pistachios, then you should go visit the Badkgyz Reserve. The Badkhyz Reserve was created in 1935. It is located in the Mary region. The name of the reserve means "the place where the wind begins". Its name reflects the real climate conditions of the spot. A variety of the animals, birds and reptiles can be found here. The reserve is also famous for pistachio-trees that grow in this region.
