Caucasus and Central Asia 2000 - Political map
"Central Asia is the core region of the Asian continent and stretches from the Caspian Sea in the west to China in the east and from Afghanistan in the south to Russia in the north. It is also sometimes referred to as Middle Asia, and, colloquially, "the 'stans" (as the six countries generally considered to be within the region all have names ending with the Persian suffix "-stan", meaning "land of") and is within the scope of the wider Eurasian continent.
In modern contexts, all definitions of Central Asia include these five republics of the former Soviet Union: Kazakhstan (pop. 17.9 million), Kyrgyzstan (5.8 million), Tajikistan (8.0 million), Turkmenistan (5.2 million), and Uzbekistan (30.2 million), for a total population of 67.1 million as of 2013-2014. Afghanistan (pop. 31.1 million) is also sometimes included." [Central Asia. Wikipedia]
"The Caucasus /ˈkɔːkəsəs/ or Caucasia /kɔːˈkeɪʒə/ (for endonyms, see below), is a region at the border of Europe and Asia, situated between the Black and the Caspian seas. It is home to the Caucasus Mountains, which contain Europe's highest mountain, Mount Elbrus. Politically, the Caucasus region is separated between northern and southern parts. The southern parts consist of independent sovereign states: Abkhazia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Nagorno-Karabakh, South Ossetia, Turkey (part), Iran (part). The northern parts are under the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation." [Caucasus. Wikipedia]
