'''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).
