Armenia became the first Christian nation in the world more than 1700 years ago. Although economic growth was held back by an earthquake in 1988 and bad infrastructure, Armenia was able to successfully adapt to privatized business and stable agriculture following independence from the former Soviet Union in 1991. Another result of the collapse of communism was the renewal of religion and religious freedoms. The Armenian Apostolic Church has strong ties with the government. Religious minorities may experience small degrees of discrimination.
