Civilization V Customisation Wiki

Uzbekistan led by Islam Karimov is a custom civilization by JakeWalrusWhale, with contributions from DarthKyofu and RawSasquatch.



The Republic of Uzbekistan, which means "the land of Uzbeks", is a presential republic land-locked in Central Asia. Uzbekistan first became wealthy in the first millennium BC, where early villages such as Samarkand and Bukhara first became weathly on the Silk Road, which was a huge trading route from Europe to China that passed through Central Asia.

Islam Karimov[]

Islam Abduganievich Karimov was born on January 3rd, 1938 in Samarkand in a family of a civil servant. He had a harsh childhood, and he joined the military. He had to share food with people who fled to Uzbekistan during World War II, even though food became hard to come by. In 1989, Karimov was elected the First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Uzbekistan. At the time the republic economy was at the state of collapse. Karimov stopped the inter-ethnic confrontation and rising of a civil-war. Literally the next day after this happened, Karimov was elected the Head of Uzbekistan on June 24th, 1989.

Dawn of Man[]

"Eternal glory and praise for you, strong president of the republic of Uzbekistan! In a time dominated by communism, you not only secured transfering the country into a republic, but also successfully stood with your people as one.  After suffering terrible punishment and humiliation at the hand of the USSR, you rallied your people to become a republic, not a communist state. Despite disagreements from other nation, you helped Uzbeksitan become a major power in the world economy, becoming a major exporter of cotton by any means necessary. You helped Uzbekistan return to its former glory after the Soviets took it away!
