Niger, officially the Republic of Niger (French: République du Niger) is a nation located in western/Saharan Africa, and named after the Niger River. A population of 10.67 million makes Niger the fourteenth-largest nation in Africa, but it is also one of the poorest-developed nations in the world. Niger shares borders with Equatoria to the east, Nigeria to the south, Upper Volta and Mali to the west and French Algeria and Italian Libya to the north.

After achieving independence from France in August 1970, Niger faced constant internal strife, with as many as three constitutions and a military regime passing as governments. Since 1993, however, a multi-party democratic system under the Nigerien Third Republic has been attempting to ease domestic tension and institute much greater personal liberties than prior regimes. Despite this, Niger is classified as a developing country, one that still faces serious challenges on its' path to stability.
