Ethiopia

Ethiopia (Ge'ez: Ityoppia), officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, is a country situated in the Horn of Africa that has been landlocked since the independence of its northern neighbor Eritrea in 1993. Apart from Eritrea to the north, Ethiopia is bordered by Sudan to the west, Kenya to the south, Djibouti to the northeast, and Somalia to the east. Ethiopia is one of the oldest nations in the world and the third-most populous nation in Africa. It has yielded some of the oldest traces of humanity, making it a candidate for the so-called "Cradle of Humanity". Ethiopia proudly claims to be "the only African country that has never been colonized", since the Liberian state, though continuously independent, was founded by African-American colonists, and since a five-year military occupation of Ethiopia by fascists (1936-1941) was a failure. Having been converted during the fourth century AD, it is also the second-oldest officially Christian nation. Historically a relatively isolated mountain empire, Ethiopia has more recently become a crossroads of global international cooperation. It became a member of the League of Nations in 1923; signed the Declaration by United Nations in 1942; was one of the fifty-one original members of the United Nations (UN); founded the UN headquarters in Africa; and currently hosts the headquarters of the African Union, formerly the Organisation of African Unity, of which it was the principal founder.
