Ethiopia Overview

Ethiopia is a federal republic in northeast Africa with Addis Ababa as the capital and the only metropolis. The highest country in Africa is determined by a mountainous highlands. It runs out to the west into a savannah and to the east into a steppe landscape. The densely populated inland shows strong climatic differences, ranging from dry in the lowlands to tropical, humid and hot to cool. The multi-ethnic state with more than 80 ethnic groups is divided into semi-autonomous regional states according to ethnic criteria. The national identity is relatively weak. For a long time, political rule was in the hands of an Orthodox Christian elite. This unequal distribution of power between Christianity and Islam led to ethnic and religious conflicts. The state language is Amharic, Lingua franca and educational language English. Traces of pre-human beings have been found in the region. In the 1st century AD, the powerful empire Aksum came into being, which later adopted Christianity. During the colonial period, the Abyssinian empire retained its independence. From 1930 Ethiopia was under the rule of Emperor Haile Selassie whose regime was overthrown in a military coup in 1974 and replaced by a socialist people’s republic. After a long civil war, the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia was founded in 1995. Even though the economy has been growing rapidly since 2005, Ethiopia is one of the poorest countries in the world. The majority of the rapidly growing population lives in villages in the central highlands and secures their livelihood through self-sufficiency in agriculture. Agricultural products, especially coffee, are the main export goods. Extreme weather conditions such as droughts endanger the yield and make the country dependent on international food aid. Foreign policy conflicts are caused by the tense relationship with the former part of Eritrea, which became independent in 1993.
