The Democratic Republic of the Congo (République Démocratique du Congo), often called DR Congo, Congo-Kinshasa, Congo, or just DRC, is a large country located in Central Africa. It borders the Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic and South Sudan to the north, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, and Rwanda to the east, Zambia and Angola to the south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

In 2009, it merged with the Republic of the Congo to create a unified state, the United Republic of the Congo (URC).
