Chad /t??d/ (Arabic: ????? T??d, French: Tchad), 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 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. Chads highest peak is the Emi Koussi in the Sahara, and NDjamena, (formerly Fort-Lamy), the capital, is the largest city. Chad is home to over 200 different ethnic and linguistic groups. Arabic and French are the official languages. Islam and Christianity are the most widely practiced religions and a majority (55%) of the population are Sufi Muslims.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 Chads 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 Fran?ois Tombalbaye. Resentment towards his policies in the Muslim north culminated in the eruption of a long-lasting civil war in 1965. In 1978, the rebels conquered the capital and put an end to the souths hegemony. However, the rebel commanders fought amongst themselves until Hiss?ne Habr? defeated his rivals. He was overthrown in 1990 by his general Idriss D?by. Since 2003, the Darfur crisis in Sudan has spilt over the border and destabilised the nation, with hundreds of thousands of Sudanese refugees living in and around camps in eastern Chad.Chad remains plagued by political violence and recurrent attempted coups d?tat (see Battle of NDjamena (2006) and Battle of NDjamena (2008)). Chad is one of the poorest and most corrupt countries in the world, most inhabitants live in poverty as subsistence herders and farmers. Since 2003, crude oil has become the countrys primary source of export earnings, superseding the traditional cotton industry.
