The Central African Republic (the C.A.R.) is a landlocked country located in the very centre of Africa.
The local Bantu, Chadic and Sudanic people over-run most of the Pigmys in circa 900- 1000AD. The CAR then became part of the French colonie of Equitorial Africa and then the separate colonies of Ubangui Chari. It gained independence in 1960, 2 years befor WW3.
The south is rainforested, the north is savana and the rest is rainforest and wetter types of grassland. Mostly by horse or river boat on the Oubangui River, due to the absence of oil. Alco-fule exsists. It is a founding member the Central African Regional Organization of Military and Economic Cooperation (CAROMEC).
It is agrarian by naure the economy is based on minor subsistance agriculture, but has diamonds, gold, iron, wood, cotton and bananas. The crops grown are mostly for subsistence level they make littel profit. However, cotton and timber industries and diamond mining has the potential of becoming a very lucrative business.
