Chad, formally the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked nation in north-focal Africa. It is flanked by Libya toward the north, Sudan toward the east, the Central African Republic toward the south, Cameroon and Nigeria toward the southwest, and Niger toward the west. It is the fifth biggest nation in Africa and the second-biggest in Central Africa as far as territory. Chad has a few areas: a desert zone in the north, a dry Sahelian belt in the middle and an increasingly prolific Sudanian Savanna zone in the south. Lake Chad, after which the nation is named, is the biggest wetland in Chad and the second-biggest in Africa. The capital N'Djamena is the biggest city. Chad's legitimate dialects are Arabic and French. Chad is home to more than 200 diverse ethnic and semantic gatherings. The most famous religion of Chad is Islam (at 55%), trailed by Christianity (at 40%). Starting in the seventh thousand years BC, human populaces moved into the Chadian bowl in incredible numbers. Before the finish of the first thousand years AD, a progression of states and domains had risen and fallen in Chad's Sahelian strip, each centered around controlling the trans-Saharan exchange courses that went through the district. France vanquished the domain by 1920 and joined it as a component of French Equatorial Africa. In 1960, Chad acquired freedom under the initiative of François Tombalbaye. Disdain towards his approaches in the Muslim north finished in the emission of an enduring common war in 1965. In 1979 the radicals vanquished the capital and put a conclusion toward the south's authority. In any case, the radical authorities battled among themselves until Hissène Habré crushed his opponents. He was ousted in 1990 by his general Idriss Déby.
