Tanganyika is a nation located in East Africa, and is particularly famous for its national parks, many of which feature safaris across landscapes nearly untouched by humans. The Serengeti Plain flows south from Kenya and around the Kilimanjaro International Peace Park and into northern Tanganyika. There, wildebeests/gnus migrate en masse. Lions, cheetahs, zebras, and a plethora of other species of animals also call Tanganyika their home. Besides the savannahs, there are a range of other wild areas, many of which are also under protection from the Tanganyikan government. Especially in the west, and near the Great African Lake, there are forested areas, some of which hold such species as Gorillas and Chimpanzees.
Tanganyika is mostly inhabited by Ethiopian peoples. Like many other Ethiopian nations, there are a wealth of languages spoken. (Ki)Swahili serves as the lingua-franca and de-facto official language of the nation. Over recent years, the birth-rate has plummetted and births per woman are now at 2.16, a healthy level which, it is thought, will speed economic advancement. The trend generally has been movement towards the cities. Currently, rural populations are stable and cities are growing. The capital and largest city, Mzizima, has been showing signs of overcrowding, with some services being stretched to the breaking point, but this problem has lessened substantially in the past 5 years both as the city has learned to deal with the growth, and because of the decrease in population growth rate.
