The history of Liberia has been intimately marked, from the very beginning, by the presence of the United States. In fact, its geopolitical story originates from the fight against slavery carried out by American philanthropic associations, with the support of their government. In 1822 one of these associations, the American Colonization Society, established a first colony of liberated blacks in America at Capo Mesurado. The name of the capital, Monrovia, was chosen in honor of President James Monroe. The group of ex-slaves became the ruling class of the new state, but it turned out to be completely foreign to a country which, although very poor, was homogeneously inserted in an archaic agrarian structure with a tribal base; subsequently the United States secured economic and political power through colossal concessions of agricultural and mining exploitation. A country endowed with extraordinary natural resources, after the Second World War a process of economic growth had begun that had made it one of the richest in the continent. But in the 1980s a terrible civil war broke out to devastate what had been built. Only in 2005 did the situation normalize with the election to the presidency of Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the first woman to hold this office on the African continent. According to COUNTRYAAH, Liberia is a nation in Western Africa, the capital city of which is Monrovia. The latest population of Liberia is 5,057,692.

The Liberian territory corresponds to the southwestern cusp of the wide Guinean region, extending for 550 km on what in colonial times was called Costa del Pepe and pushing inland to the edge of the Guinean plateau. Archaeozoic rocks clearly prevail (granites, gneisses, crystalline schists); in the northern section, however, there are paleozoic formations and, in correspondence with the coastal plain, Cenozoic and Neozoic sedimentary soils, of both marine and alluvial origin. The antiquity and the eminently rigid structure of the relief, remained foreign since the Paleozoic to important tectonic movements, and the prolonged erosive processes have determined everywhere a senile morphology, with a decisive prevalence of tabular forms. The country faces the Atlantic with a uniform coastline, generally low and imposing, closed by sandy bars at the mouths of the rivers, although there are some rocky eminences that form small promontories (Mount, Mesurado, Palmas); follows a strip of plain that penetrates more or less deeply, according to the space left to it by the wide ridges (Kpo Range, Bong Range, Tiehnpo Range, etc.) with which the plateau is fragmented, deeply engraved by the valleys of the rivers that come down to the Atlantic. The altitude, which on average is around 500 m, rises as you proceed inland,, the imposing granite massif on the border between Liberia, Guinea and the Ivory Coast. The territory, sloping down from the Guinean watershed to the coast, causes the rivers to run almost parallel, with a general NE-SW trend and modest development; forced to overcome the steps of the plateau forming rapids and waterfalls, they are little or no navigable; moreover, their regime is inconstant, with heavy floods at the time of the great summer rains. From W to E, the main ones are the Mano, which partly marks the border with Sierra Leone, the Saint Paul, at whose mouth Monrovia is located, the Saint Johnand the Cestos, which originate from the slopes of the Nimba mountains, and the Cavally, on the border with the Ivory Coast. The climate, as in the whole Guinean area, is hot and humid. In the summer, in the six months of May-October, the contributions of humid air from the Atlantic determine very abundant rainfall (over 4000 mm per year on the coast, but in the interior, with a regular decrease, 2500-2000 mm); in winter, on the other hand, the continental air flow coming from the NE prevails and therefore there is a dry season. Temperatures are generally high all year round, given the astronomical position of the country, just N of the Equator, with averages of 26-30 ºC during the dry season, of 24-25 ºC in the rainy season; on the inside, however, the temperature range is accentuated, both diurnal and annual, while the relative atmospheric humidity is significantly lowered, which in Monrovia reaches averages of 85%.
