Latvia has a long and complex history. The area has been settled by various peoples throughout the centuries, including Finno-Ugric tribes, Baltic tribes, and Germanic tribes. In the 13th century, the territory of Latvia was conquered by the German Teutonic Knights and became a part of the Livonian Confederation.

During the 16th and 17th centuries, Latvia came under the control of Poland-Lithuania and Sweden, before being absorbed into the Russian Empire in the 18th century. Latvia declared independence from Russia in 1918, but this independence was short-lived and the country was occupied by the Soviet Union in 1940.

During World War II, Latvia was occupied by Nazi Germany. After the war, Latvia was again occupied by the Soviet Union until 1991, when it declared independence again. Since then, Latvia has undergone a process of political and economic transformation and joined the European Union and NATO in 2004.

Today, Latvia is a parliamentary democracy with a market-based economy. It has a population of around 1.9 million people and its official language is Latvian.
