Nearly 90% of the Turkiestan is a Kara Kum desert, whose emptiness gives a second lowest population density after Kazakhstan in the former Soviet Union. The Turkmen were pastoral nomads organized into numerous tribes at times ruled by neighboring empires. Russia invaded in the late XIX century. Turkmenistan became a union republic in 1924 despite internal disputes and a lack of national identity. The arable land has more then tripled by building the Kara Kum Canal, begun in the 1950s and still being expanded. Main occupation is agricultural products including cotton and maize. It is reach in minerals, oil, coal, sculpture and is also famous for its carpets, Turcoman horses and Karakul sheep. In 1990 Turkmenistan adopted declaration of sovereignty followed by declaration of independence in Oct. 1991.
