The country was regarded as a union as various member states, known within the union as "African Socialist Republics" or ASRs, similar to the concept of the USSR and its administrative divisions. Indeed, the nation was initially formed in 1963 largely off the back of Soviet pressure following communist Ethiopia's defeat alongside ally Sudan in the 1962 Egypto-Sudanese War.
Over subsequent years, neighbouring nations joined the union, with the last joining member being Somalia, as the Somalian ASR, on 21 October 1969. The Djiboutian ASR was formed in 1987 following Sahelia's controversial invasion and annexation of the country. Additionally, the Sudan ASR was split into the North Sudan ASR and South Sudan ASR in 1988, and the Eritrea ASR was split off from the Ethiopia ASR in 1989.
