Hoş Käldiņiz!

Welcome to the website of the State of Turkestan, a large Central Asian country in the shared "alternate Earth" constructed world of  Ill Bethisad.   The area of the world which is Turkestan *there* covers an area which is *here* divided between Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, about half of *here*'s Kazakhstan and part of Xinjiang province of China.

Independent since 1922, Turkestan is heir to a rich history and cultural tradition which blends Turkic, Persian and Mongolian elements with more recent Chinese and Russian influences.
