As a small land-locked country, Tajikistan has rocky geography, with some of the tallest mountains in the world. The country is home to a variety of ethnic groups –mostly Tajik, but there are a number of Uzbek and Russian residents also. Shortly after independence from the Soviet Union, a civil war broke out that lasted until 1997. While the newly established political system is relatively stable, and the country’s economy is growing, there is still a large terrorist threat towards Americans.
