Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast)The Republic of Côte d'Ivoire (; French: [kot diˈvwaʁ]), commonly known in English as Ivory Coast, is a country in West Africa. People who live there speak French. Some also speak Abé. The country used to be called the Ivory Coast. Some people in the USA still call it this, but it is not the official name. Coffee, cocoa, bananas, and rubber are all sold from here. From the 1960s to the mid-1980s, Côte d'Ivoire was managed well by the government. There was one president for this time. The economic growth and development of the country were among the best in the world. After the mid-1980s the country became hard to live in. The cost of coffee and cocoa went down so people could not make as much money. The first president died, and a civil war took place. Today it relies on smaller crops. The capital of Côte d'Ivoire is Yamoussoukro; its biggest city is Abidjan. Other cities can be found at List of cities in Côte d'Ivoire.
NigerDespite the fact that the country has some of the world's largest uranium deposits, Niger is one of the poorest countries in the world, a landlocked Sub-Saharan nation, whose economy centers on subsistence crops and livestock. Niger suffered austere military rule for much of its post-independence history. Not until 1993, 33 years after independence from France, did Niger hold its first free and open elections. A 1995 peace accord ended a five-year revolt by Tuareg tribes, who accused the government of failing to deliver on promised economic aid. Coups in 1996 and 1999 were followed by the creation of a National Reconciliation Council that effected a transition to civilian rule in December 1999.
