Liberia is a lush, rolling-hill country on the West African coast racked by former civil war and ebola crises.
English is its official language. The country’s capital and largest city is Monrovia. Sierra Leone is its neighbor.
Liberia is Africa’s oldest republic. Before the outbreak of the Ebola epidemic the country had 50 doctors for its population of 4.3 million. The country’s health system was seriously weakened by a civil war that ended in 2003.
Although founded by freed American and Caribbean slaves, Liberia is mostly inhabited by indigenous Africans, with the slaves’ descendants comprising 5% of the population.
According to the CIA World Factbook, the average age of its citizens is 17.9 years.
