|Background:||Following the First World War , the closely related Czechs and Slovaks of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire merged to form Czechoslovakia. During the interwar years , the new country's leaders were frequently preoccupied with meeting the demands of other ethnic minorities within the republic , most notably the Sudeten Germans and the Ruthenians (Ukrainians). After World War II , a truncated Czechoslovakia fell within the Soviet sphere of influence. In 1968 , an invasion by Warsaw Pact troops ended the efforts of the country's leaders to liberalize Communist party rule and create "socialism with a human face." Anti-Soviet demonstrations the following year ushered in a period of harsh repression. With the collapse of Soviet authority in 1989 , Czechoslovakia regained its freedom through a peaceful "Velvet Revolution." On 1 January 1993 , the country underwent a "velvet divorce" into its two national components , the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The Czech Republic joined NATO in 1999 and the European Union in 2004.|
