Republic of Macedonia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1633 words)
The lands governed by the Republic of Macedonia were part of a number of ancient states and former empires; Paionia, the ancient Macedon (which established the name of the whole Macedonian region), the Roman and Byzantine empires as well as medieval Bulgarian and Serbian states.
The Republic of Macedonia remained at peace through the Yugoslav wars of the early 1990s but was significantly disrupted by the Kosovo War in 1999, when an estimated 360,000 ethnic Albanians from Kosovo took refuge in the country.
The Republic of Macedonia is a parliamentary democracy with an executive government composed of a coalition of parties from the unicameral legislature (Собрание, Sobranie), and an independent judicial branch with a constitutional court.
