Satellite view is showing Liberia, the "Land of the Free" a country on the North Atlantic coast of West Africa, known first as the Pepper Coast and later as the Grain Coast. Liberia is situated between Côte d’Ivoire and Sierra Leone. it is also bordered by Guinea in north.

With an area of 111,369 km² (43,000 sq mi) Liberia is somewhat larger than Bulgaria or slightly larger than the U.S. state of Tennessee.


In 1822, the American Colonization Society (ACS) began sending African-American volunteers to the Grain Coast to establish a colony for freed African Americans. The problem was, many of them were of mixed race and educated in American culture; they did not identify with the indigenous natives of the tribes they encountered. The ACS, a private organization supported by prominent American politicians such as Abraham Lincoln, Henry Clay, and James Monroe, believed repatriation of free blacks was preferable to widespread emancipation of slaves. Similar state-based organizations established colonies in Mississippi-in-Africa and the Republic of Maryland, which were later annexed by Liberia.

Today Liberia has a population of about 4.5 million people (in 2015). Capital city is Monrovia, named after James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States (1817–1825).
Spoken languages are English (official) and an English-based pidgin plus, over 20 indigenous languages.
Liberia is one of the poorest countries in the world with a high unemployment rate (85%) and high corruption.
