Located in the most inhospitable and deserted part of southern Africa, without access to the sea following the colonial definition of its borders and traditionally subject to South Africa, Botswana showed very little chance of authentic development at the time of independence (1966); but the discovery of enormous mineral deposits and the institutional changes that took place throughout southern Africa have allowed the country to develop significantly positive, so much so that it has become one of the richest in the continent. In addition to the exploitation of mineral resources (copper, nickel and diamonds), there are other factors underlying its economic success: ethnic homogeneity that avoided internal conflicts, political stability and the preservation of democratic institutions. The end of the regime of apartheid in South Africa has then strengthened and intensified relations with that country, made difficult in the past by Botswana’s aversion to any form of racial segregation. The mining proceeds and the substantial financing from the West allowed the modernization of the traditional economic sectors (agriculture and livestock), the increase of infrastructures and the growth of urban construction.

THE STATE
Botswana is a parliamentary republic; the President of the Republic, elected for 5 years by the National Assembly, is responsible for the executive power. The legislative function belongs to the National Assembly; the House of Heads, on the other hand, has consultative functions, essentially composed of 15 members representing the eight main tribes. The judicial system is based on Dutch law, British Common Law and local customs. All districts have courts of first instance whose sentences may be subject to appeal before the High Court. The death penalty is in effect. The armed forces, created in 1977 and divided into army and air force, are supported by the paramilitary police force. Military service is carried out on a voluntary basis. After independence the country has invested, and continues to invest, a lot in education. In 1980 he started a national literacy program and the free primary education from 6 years of age for 7 years. Secondary education lasts 5 years and is divided into a first cycle of 3 years and a second of 2. In 2010 the illiterate rate was around 16.7%. The capital Gaborone is home to a university, but although Botswana has one of the best education systems on the continent, many students prefer to continue their studies abroad. According to COUNTRYAAH, Botswana is a nation in Southern Africa, the capital city of which is Gaborone. The latest population of Botswana is 2,351,638.

GEOGRAPHY
Morphologically the land corresponds to a large area of subsidence character endorheic, peneplanate whose surfaces are covered by Cenozoic formations from which they emerge isolated rocky peaks. In the central part, more depressed, there are wide sandy undulations that are part of the Kalahari desert. There is no real hydrographic network; these are temporary courses, similar to uidian Saharan flowing down from the peripheral boards and get lost in the central depression, where, however, no shortage pitched precious groundwater. Character of wadi also has the Molopo, a tributary of the Orange, which limits the country to S; richer in water is the Limpopo, which flows on the eastern edge. In the northern part, a marked depression attracts the water-rich rivers of the highlands of Angola, including the Okavango, which pours its waters into some vast swampy areas (Ngamiland). These marshes form a large internal delta (20,000 km²); in many cases they are unable to contain the seasonal waters of the river and then, through a channel of 200 km, the Botletle, they pour part of it into the Makgadikgadi lake. Finally, the Ngami, located to the S of the Okavango basin, is not a real lake, but a large depression fed only occasionally by the Taokhe. The climate is of an arid continental type, with high average temperature values, which go from 25 ºC in January to 12 ºC in June (data referring to Gaborone). The persistent anticyclonic formations hinder the inflows of tropical humid air masses and the precipitations, essentially due to the contributions of air masses coming from the Indian Ocean, do not reach an average of 250 mm per year.
