Africa, the world's second largest continent by area and population, is comprised of 54 countries, plus Western Sahara, which is a member of the African Union, but is claimed by Morocco and its statehood is disputed.

Africa's (and the world's) newest nation is South Sudan, which gained independence July 9, 2011.

Just over one billion people inhabit Africa, accounting for about 14 percent of the world's population. Africa is home to the Nile River system, the world's longest river system, and the Sahara Desert, the world's largest desert.

Africa borders the Mediterranean Sea to the north, the Suez Canal and Red Sea along the Sinai Peninsula to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

The African continent sits along the equator and extends across several climate zones , and is the only continent to stretch from the northern temperate zone to the southern temperate zone.
