Sierra Leone is a West African country whose capital city is Freetown. Historically, the country was a refuge for slaves returning from bondage overseas. The country is regaining political stability after 11 years of a civil war which ended after intervention by Britain. The effects of the war continue to be felt by the population, but peace is starting to prevail in the country. Sierra Leone is rich in minerals such as gold, diamond, bauxite, and titanium. The natural resources were the primary reason for the war as groups fought for control of the mineral-rich regions. Sierra Leone has a distinct mix of cultures and the people are known to be friendly, hospitable, and expressive. English is the official language of Sierra Leone with Krio being spoken by some. Muslims make up the majority of the population with Christians and traditionalists comprising 30% and 10%, respectively.
