Liberia is a country located in West Africa, neighboring Sierra Leone, Guinea, and Ivory Coast. Established as a country for freed African Americans. Liberia gained independence in 1847 making it the first African country to become independent. The political climate of Liberia has been unstable as a result of constant civil war starting in 1989. The civil war ended in 2003 after intervention by the United Nations which deployed its soldiers to control the country’s security. The potential for violence and civil war remains high and many foreign governments often still have to put up travel advisories against travel there. Liberia has a unique culture combining the culture of the freed slaves from different countries along with regional traditions with each tribe having district rituals and practices. The main language in Liberia is English.
