The Coastal African Republic (CAR), more often referred to as simply Coastal Africa, is a republic located in western Africa, initially comprised of the nation of Liberia and its immediate neighbors upon the nation's birth at the Monrovia Conference of 1948. The nation has expanded in the nearly half-century since its birth, to comprise the modern-day thirteen-state republic that exists today (co-incidentally the original number of US states), and is considered to be the nation in Africa most like the United States, a close ally.
Coastal Africa shares borders with Mali and Niger to the north, Equatoria to the west, and Zaire to the west-southwest. The national population, at 266.4 million, is the largest on the continent and the 4th-largest in the world, behind India, China, and the United States.
