In the 1990s every country in the world except for Somalia and the United States became a signatory to the Convention on the Rights of the Child, or CRC.

In that year the South African government signed a treaty with Somalia to give military aid to the repressive regime of Siad Barre in exchange for an exclusive contract to service Somali air travel.

With the advantage of being located near the Arabian Peninsula, Somali traders have increasingly begun to challenge Australia's traditional dominance over the Gulf Arab livestock and meat market, offering quality animals at very low prices. In response, Gulf Arab states have started to make strategic investments in the country, with Saudi Arabia building livestock export infrastructure and the United Arab Emirates purchasing large farmlands. The Arab countries demand Australian sheep and lamb – ''Farmonline'' Somalia is also a major world supplier of frankincense and myrrh.

artistic culture

of a coral stone house in Mogadishu. Somali art is the artistic culture of the Somali people, both historic and contemporary. These include artistic traditions in pottery, music, architecture, wood carving and other genres. Somali art is characterized by its aniconism, partly as a result of the vestigial influence of the pre-Islamic mythology (Somali Mythology) of the Somalis coupled with their ubiquitous Muslim beliefs. However, there have been cases in the past of artistic depictions representing living creatures such as the golden birds on the Mogadishan canopies (Canopy (building)), the ancient rock paintings in northern Somalia, and the plant decoration (Decorative arts)s on religious tombs in southern Somalia, but these are considered rare. Instead, intricate patterns and geometric designs, bold colors and monumental architecture were the norm. Commons:Category:Somalia WikiPedia:Somalia Dmoz:Regional Africa Somalia

'''Somalia''' (

Somalia has a population of around 10 million. Around 85% of residents are ethnic Somalis (Somali people), who have historically inhabited the northern part of the country. Ethnic minorities make up the remainder and are largely concentrated in the southern regions. .

In antiquity, Somalia was an important commercial centre, John Kenrick (1855) ''Phoenicia'', B. Fellowes, p. 199. Jeanne Rose, John Hulburd (1992) ''The Aromatherapy Book: Applications and Inhalations'', North Atlantic Books, p. 94, ISBN 1556430736. and is among the most probable locations of the fabled ancient Land of Punt. . Italy acquired full control of the northeastern and southern parts of the area after successfully waging the so-called Campaign of the Sultanates (History of Somalia#20th century) against the ruling Majeerteen Sultanate and Sultanate of Hobyo. Italian occupation lasted until 1941, yielding to British military administration. Northern Somalia would remain a protectorate, while southern Somalia became a United Nations Trusteeship (Trust Territory of Somalia) in 1949. In 1960, the two regions united to form the independent Somali Republic under a civilian government. ''The Illustrated Library of The World and Its Peoples: Africa, North and East'', Greystone Press: 1967, p. 338. Mohamed Siad Barre seized power in 1969 and established the Somali Democratic Republic. In 1991, Barre's government collapsed as the Somali Civil War broke out.

In the absence of a central government, Somalia's residents reverted to local forms of conflict resolution. A few autonomous regions (States and regions of Somalia), including the Somaliland, Puntland and Galmudug administrations, emerged in the north in the ensuing process of decentralization. The early 2000s saw the creation of fledgling interim federal administrations. The Transitional National Government (TNG) was established in 2000, followed by the formation of the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) in 2004, which reestablished national institutions such as the military (Military of Somalia).
