In the Shadow Plague DLC, certain events will take place in Turkey, about a group of cavers discovering an extremely deep cave system in this country, at the bottom which lies a strange Shadow Pool of water in a previously unknown part of the cave.
IG Factbook: "Modern Turkey was founded in 1923 from the Anatolian remnants of the defeated Ottoman Empire by national hero Mustafa Kemal, who was later honoured with the title Ataturk or 'Father of the Turks.' After a period of one-party rule, an experiment with multi-party politics led to the 1950 election victory of the opposition Democratic Party and the peaceful transfer of power. Since then, Turkish political parties have multiplied, but democracy has been fractured by periods of instability and intermittent military coups (1960, 1971, 1980). Turkey intervened militarily on Cyprus in 1974 to prevent a Greek takeover of the island and has since acted as patron state to the 'Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus,' which only Turkey recognizes. A separatist insurgency begun in 1984 by the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) has dominated the Turkish military's attention and claimed more than 30,000 lives. Turkey joined the UN in 1945 and in 1952 it became a member of NATO."
