The Republic of Cyprus is de facto partitioned into two main parts; the area under the effective control of the Republic of Cyprus, comprising about 59% of the island's area, and the Turkish-occupied area in the north, calling itself the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, covering about 36% of the island's area and recognized only by Turkey.

The areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia are allocated by treaty to the United Kingdom as sovereign military bases (Western Sovereign Base Area or WSBA, and Eastern Sovereign Base Area or ESBA, respectively).
