Which Turkey Was The Best ?

Postby Hakinda Herseyi Duymak istiyorum » Fri Dec 06, 2019 12:01 pm

When we look at the history of Turkey we see a lot of different style nations. Which one do you think is the best ?

My opinion
A Social Democratic Kemalist Turkey that ensures the justice of the region.

1-Justice
2-Legal recognition of homosexuals
3-Happy people

Ehh, wouldn't the Byzantine Empire better fit into a Best Greece (or best Roman Empire) thread ...? There wasn't really much Turkish about it until 1453.

Since Lillorainen's geography is currently being overhauled a 'tiny' bit, most information on it posted before December 12, 2018, is not entirely reliable anymore. Until there's a new, proper factfile, everything you might need to know can be found here. Thank you. #RetconOfDoom

I have a bit of an obsession with the Byzantine Empire, so my answer should be fairly obvious. Would've been better if 1071 never happened.

I prefer it stuffed with vegetables and baked until it has a nice, golden brown crust all round, served on a nice plate of creamy mashed potatoes with gravy and cranberry sauce.

Calling the Early Republican Era "social democratic" is stretching the word to its absolute limit, but I'll take it.

Also, Byzantine Empire? Cilicia? Hittites? Latin Empire? Hatay State? None of those had anything to do with Turkey, really. The last one existed for literally one or two days before being annexed by Turkey.

Poll options for the sake of having options...

And I hadn't seen that image. No, no thank you, I'm happy with the current Turkish borders. They're fine.

The thread should be called Best Anatolia? or Best Asia Minor since those are the geographical terms for the place. If the thread were about specifically ethnic Turks, the Poll would need to include Khazars, Hephthalites, Uzbeks etc.

Probably. Though, with how well-regarded we Turks are on the site, such a thread is probably a foregone conclusion. Not that this one isn't: The Byzantine circlejerk started on page 1.
