Tajikistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. It is bordered by Afghanistan to the south, Uzbekistan to the west, Kyrgyzstan to the north and China to the east. The traditional homelands of the Tajik people include present-day Tajikistan as well as parts of Afghanistan and Uzbekistan. On 9 September 1991, Tajikistan became an independent sovereign nation as the Soviet Union disintegrated. A civil war was fought almost immediately after independence, lasting from 1992 to 1997. Since the end of the war, newly established political stability and foreign aid have allowed the country's economy to grow. Mountains cover more than 90% of the country. It is a developing country with a transitional economy that is highly dependent on remittances, aluminium and cotton production.

Emomali Rahmon[]

Emomali Rahmon is the 3rd President of Tajikistan since 16 November 1994. Previously he was the Chairman of the Supreme Assembly of Tajikistan, as the de facto head of state from 20 November 1992 to 16 November 1994. On 30 September 1999, he was elected vice-president of the UN General Assembly for a one-year term. Five times Rahmon won undemocratic presidential elections; in addition, he extended and reformed his powers based on the results of the national constitutional referendums of 1999 and 2003. Since 25 December 2015, Emomali Rahmon has held the lifetime title of Peshvoyi Millat, or leader of the nation.

Dawn of Man[]

"Hail to Emomali Rahmon, President of Tajikistan, the Founder of Peace and National Unity, Leader of the Nation. Coming to power with your young country at its knees, during the civil war, you and your family consolidated power, heralding a ceasefire and peace. You have controlled the country ever since, being a father to the nation, developing it with your vision. You deftly avoided both assassination and coups in the early years of your reign, to become an unbelievably popular figure in your home. From the promise of hydropower and aluminium, the nation you will bequeath to your son will be a completely different one to that which you grew up in. You truly are the figure that defines Tajikistan.
