Chad

'''Chad''' ), officially the '''Republic of Chad''', is a landlocked country in Central Africa. It is bordered by Libya to the north, Sudan to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon and Nigeria to the southwest and Niger to the west. It is the fifth largest country in Africa in terms of area.

Chad is divided into multiple regions: a desert zone in the north, an arid Sahelian belt in the centre and a more fertile Sudanese (Sudan (region)) savanna zone in the south. Lake Chad, after which the country is named, is the largest wetland in Chad and the second-largest in Africa. N'Djamena, the capital, is the largest city. Chad is home to over 200 different ethnic (List of ethnic groups in Chad) and linguistic groups (Languages of Chad). Arabic (Arabic language) and French (French language) are the official languages. Islam and Christianity are the most widely practiced religions.

Beginning in the 7th millennium BC, human populations moved into the Chadian basin in great numbers. By the end of the 1st millennium BC, a series of states and empires rose and fell in Chad's Sahelian strip, each focused on controlling the trans-Saharan trade routes that passed through the region. France conquered the territory by 1920 and incorporated it as part of French Equatorial Africa. In 1960, Chad obtained independence under the leadership of François Tombalbaye. Resentment towards his policies in the Muslim north culminated in the eruption of a long-lasting civil war (The Tombalbaye Regime#Rebellion in Chad) in 1965. In 1979, the rebels (Transitional Government of National Unity) conquered the capital and put an end to the south's hegemony. However, the rebel commanders fought amongst themselves until Hissène Habré defeated his rivals. He was overthrown in 1990 by his general Idriss Déby. Since 2003, the Darfur crisis (Darfur conflict) in Sudan has spilt over the border and destabilised the nation (War in Chad (2005–present)), with hundreds of thousands of Sudanese refugees living in and around camps in eastern Chad.

While many political parties are active, power lies firmly in the hands of President Déby and his political party, the Patriotic Salvation Movement. Chad remains plagued by political violence and recurrent attempted coups d'état (coup d'état). Chad is one of the poorest (List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita) and most corrupt (Corruption Perceptions Index) countries in the world; most inhabitants live in poverty as subsistence herders and farmers (Agriculture in Chad). Since 2003, crude oil (petroleum) has become the country's primary source of export earnings, superseding the traditional cotton industry.
