Cyprus is the third largest island in the Mediterranean, located in a key position between North Africa, the Middle East, Anatolia, and the Greek islands as you can see in Cyprus map. The creation of the island of Cyprus itself is owed to the collision of the Anatolian Plate, which Cyprus lies along the southern margin of, with the African plate. By virtue of its location along a plate margin, earthquakes are a fairly frequent phenomenon on the island. Cyprus consists of four named bedrock units, known as the Keryneia Terrane, Troodos Ophiolite, Circum Troodos Sedimentary Succession, and Mamonia Terrane.

Cyprus has an interesting administrative layout, with six districts belonging to the country of Cyprus, including the district of Nicosia, wherein its largest city and capital resides, and the district of Limassol, wherein the second largest city of Limassol arrives, as well as the districts of Kyrenia, Famagusta, Paphos, and Larnaca as its shown in Cyprus map. Additionally, however, the island is home to several exclaves and non-Cypriot military bases within the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia. There is also a United Nations-controlled buffer zone stretched along the northeastern section of the island, splitting the city of Nicosia in two, which effectively separates the island into Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot spheres of control but does not prevent travel between them, as the zone can be crossed.

Road transport is the dominant form of transport on the island. Figures released by the International Road Federation in 2007 show that Cyprus holds the highest car ownership rate in the world with 742 cars per 1,000 people as its mentioned in Cyprus map. In 2006 extensive plans were announced to improve and expand bus services and restructure public transport throughout Cyprus, with the financial backing of the European Union Development Bank. In 2010 the new revised and expanded bus network got implemented. Public transport in Cyprus is limited to privately run bus services (except in Nicosia), taxis, and interurban 'shared' taxi services (locally referred to as service taxis). Thus, private car ownership in the country is the fifth highest per capita in the world. However in 2006 extensive plans were announced to expand and improve bus services and restructure public transport throughout Cyprus, with the financial backing of the European Union Development Bank.

Greek and Turkish are the official languages according to Article 3 of the Constitution of Cyprus. In Northern Cyprus, the official language is Turkish (Article 2 of the 1983 Constitution of Northern Cyprus). English is widely spoken on the island, and Russian has become fairly widespread in recent years due to the influx of immigrants and investors from CIS countries. The Greek Cypriot community adheres to the Autocephalous Greek Orthodox Church of Cyprus and the Turkish Cypriot community adheres to Islam. The religious groups of Armenians, Maronites and Latins (about 9,000 people in total) opted, in accordance with the 1960 constitution, to belong to the Greek Cypriot community. According to the 2001 census carried out in the Government controlled area, 98.2 % of the population are Christians of various denominations. 94.8% of the population are Christian Orthodox, 0.9% Armenians and Maronites, 1.5% Roman Catholics, 1.0% Church of England, and 0.6% Muslims as you can see in Cyprus on map. The remaining 1.3% adhere to other religious denominations or did not state their religion.

Before the dispute started in 1964 the peoples of Cyprus (then 77% Greek Cypriots, 18% Turkish Cypriots, 5% other nationalities, including Armenians and Maronites) were dispersed over the entire island. The Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 de facto partitioned the island into two political areas: 99.5% of Greek Cypriots now live in the Republic of Cyprus, while 98.7% of Turkish Cypriots live in Northern Cyprus (of other nationalities, 99.2% live in the Greek Cypriot area in the south) as its shown in Cyprus on map. Greek is predominantly spoken in the South, where the majority are Greek Cypriots, Turkish in the north, where the majority are Turkish Cypriots . English is widely used over all of the island. The total population of Cyprus as of the end of 2006 is slightly over 1 million, comprising 789,300 in the territory controlled by the government of the Republic of Cyprus and 265,100 in Northern Cyprus. The population of Northern Cyprus includes some 150,000-160,000 Turkish immigrants who are regarded as "illegal settlers" by the Republic of Cyprus government and are not included in the population statistics of the Republic of Cyprus Statistical Service.

Cyprus has four exclaves, all in territory that belongs to the British Sovereign Base Area of Dhekelia. The first two are the villages of Ormidhia and Xylotymvou as its mentioned in Cyprus on map. The third is the Dhekelia Power Station which is divided by a British road into two parts. The northern part is an exclave, like the two villages, whereas the southern part is located by the sea and therefore not an exclave although it has no territorial waters of its own. The UN Buffer Zone runs up against Dhekelia and picks up again from its east side off Ayios Nikolaos and is connected to the rest of Dhekelia by a thin land corridor. In that sense the buffer zone turns the Paralimni area on the southeast corner of the island into a de facto, though not de jure, exclave. The island nation Cyprus is member of: Australia Group, CN, CE, CFSP, EBRD, EIB, EU, FAO, IAEA, IBRD, ICAO, ICC, ICCt, ITUC, IDA, IFAD, IFC, IHO, ILO, IMF, IMO, Interpol, IOC, IOM, IPU, ITU, MIGA, NAM, NSG, OPCW, OSCE, PCA, UN, UNCTAD, UNESCO, UNHCR, UNIDO, UPU, WCL, WCO, WFTU, WHO, WIPO, WMO, WToO, WTO.

The Cyprus cedar and golden oak are of particular note, as they are both endangered and endemic to the island of Cyprus and, specifically, the Troodos Mountains, which contains the Paphos Forest reserve as its mentioned in the Detailed map of Cyprus. Within the Paphos Forest are the aforementioned cedar and oak, as well as other trees like the Brutia pine and Old World sycamore, and notable animals like the endemic Cyprus mouflon and Cyprus mouse, and the red fox, a common sight in much of the general region. Other mammals to be found on Cyprus include fruit bats, hedgehogs, Balkan pond turtles, whip snakes, and starred agamas. Cyprus is home to nearly 400 species of birds, some of which are endemic and will only breed on the island, like the Cyprus warbler, Cyprus wheatear, and Cyprus scops owl. The black-winged stilt, spur-winged lapwing, greater flamingo, chukar partridge, and griffon vulture are other significant avifauna, often found near the sea and other bodies of water like Cyprus Limassol and Larnaca salt lakes.
