origins of science are in religion itself, and by doing so they show themselves to be even less than medieval monks! Even the first great scientists of the Renaissance were highly religious people, and Einstein too was very religious. These people couldn't shine those scientist's shoes! HM Cesidio Tallini (User:IndigoGenius) does not think that an MSN Group is "encyclopedic," but that is exactly where the Fifth World movement (Fifth World nation) was born, and the Fifth World is more than an MSN group, albeit an interesting one. The Fifth World controls at least 8 top-level domains that are even beyond powerful ICANN's control; in fact, ICANN doesn't even have jurisdiction over the TLDs of the Fifth World. And we wouldn't have it any other way. The Fifth World controls and actually owns an IPv4 network as powerful as the one the Falkland Islands owns, as powerful as the network of the Central African Republic. We can potentially act as hosts for 256 clients or servers, and I believe that is no joke. We also have among our citizens, a former Italian Minister of Parliament (Ilona Staller), a Canadian Internet Scientist that runs his own top-level domains in addition to our TLDs, and several brilliant persons of high human stature and potential. We also have the moral and other support of a Dutch multinational company. We run credible news services; a university doing pioneering research in several fields; and we run TLDs for the Savoy Royal Family, and for the government of Italy, with their knowledge and bewilderment. We support several non-profit organisations that have little or nothing to do with the Fifth World, and we enjoy the support of a few Native Americans from federally registered tribes. We are known to New York Senators, to Italian Senators, and to MEPs as well. If this is '''nonsense''', I suggest you have your head examined, or study this movement directly for further evidence. Those very words you are using against this movement could one day come back to haunt you, as has often happened to senile authorities in the past who were too quick to judge. I may not have the right to destroy my own article, but I do have the right to state briefly what the Fifth World was called by the people of Wikipedia. If you have the authority to destroy and mutilate my articles, then you will be destroyed and mutilated by my mouth. --IndigoGenius (User:IndigoGenius) 01:04, 30 May 2004 (UTC) colspan "2" left (Image:CAR_prefectures.png) colspan "2" The Central African Republic is divided into fourteen prefectures: '''Gbadolite''' or '''Gbado-Lite''' (pronounced Commons:Category:Central African Republic WikiPedia:Central African Republic Dmoz:Regional Africa Central African Republic

The city became the capital first of the French Congo, and then of French Equatorial Africa, a federation of states which encompassed Gabon, the Central African Republic and Chad. In 1924, the Congo-Océan railway was brought into service which linked Brazzaville with the port of Pointe-Noire. According to the Special Court for Sierra Leone, Charles Taylor (Charles Taylor (Liberia))'s orders for "The amputation of the arms and legs of men, women, and children as part of a scorched-earth campaign was designed to take over the region’s rich diamond fields and was backed by Gaddafi, who routinely reviewed their progress and supplied weapons".

of Senegal. However, this observation, and a subsequent observation that identified a second specimen in the region in 1956, have not been confirmed and thus the species' distribution in West Africa is inconclusive. West of Ethiopia, it has a curious distribution, with few records. There is a single record from the Central African Republic, two from Burkina Faso, and as mentioned two unconfirmed sightings from Senegal, one from the Gambia, and a possible sighting in Cameroon. These sightings may indicate improper documentation, remaining populations from what was once a larger range, or new populations, indicating a growing range.

Most of the CAR consists of Sudano-Guinean savannas, but the country also includes a Sahelo-Sudanian (East Sudanian savanna) zone in the north and an equatorial forest zone (Northern Congolian forest-savanna mosaic) in the south. Two thirds of the country is within the Ubangi River basin (which flows into the Congo (Congo River)), while the remaining third lies in the basin of the Chari (Chari River), which flows into Lake Chad.
What is today the Central African Republic has been inhabited for millennia; however, the country's current borders were established by France, which ruled the country as a colony starting in the late 19th century. After gaining independence from France in 1960, the Central African Republic was ruled by a series of autocratic leaders; by the 1990s, calls for democracy led to the first multi-party democratic elections in 1993. Ange-Félix Patassé became president, but was later removed by General François Bozizé (François Bozizé) in the 2003 coup (2003 Central African Republic coup d'état). The Central African Republic Bush War began in 2004 and, despite a peace treaty in 2007 and another in 2011, fighting broke out (Central African Republic conflict (2012–present)) between government, Muslim, and Christian factions in December 2012, leading to ethnic and religious cleansing and massive population displacement in 2013 and 2014.
Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, crude oil, gold, diamonds, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2013, according to the Human Development Index (HDI), the country had a low level of human development, ranking at 185th out of 187 countries.
