Ethiopia is a landlocked country located in the Horn of Africa. It is the second most populous country in Africa after Nigeria. It borders on the north with Eritrea, on the northeast with Djibouti, on the east with Somalia, on the south with Kenya and on the west with Sudan. Ethiopia is the only African country that has never been colonized, maintaining its independence throughout the whole of Africa, except for a period of five years (1936-1941), when it was under Italian occupation. Its capital, as well as its largest and most populated city, is Addis Ababa. With the independence of Eritrea in 1993 Ethiopia lost its exit to the sea. Ethiopia has an estimated population of 90 million people.
