For example, the majority of its land is still comprised of almost all muslims. They still have mosques which represent a large part of their culture and has been a large part since the 6th century Islam. However unlike the 6th century Islam, Turkey has changed in its forms of Economy and how they earn their money. They do partake in pumping oil which does equal a large part of their economy but still grow many traditional agricultural things that also make up 25% of its economy. In the pollitical sense, it still is mostly controlled by the Islamic sense of laws but does follow Swiss civil laws.
