Officially titled the State of Libya, this is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Algeria and Tunisia to the west.

The three traditional parts of the country are Tripolitania, Fezzan and Cyrenaica. With an area of almost 1.8 million sqjkm (700,000 sq mi), Libya is the 17th largest country in the world. The largest city and capital, Tripoli, is home to 1.7 million of Libya’s 6.4 million people.

A civil war and NATO-led military intervention in 2011 resulted in the ousting and death of the country’s former leader, Muammar Gaddafi, and the collapse of his 42-year “First of September ‘Al Fateh’ Revolution” and 34-year-old Jamahiriya state. As a result, Libya is currently undergoing political reconstruction. Elections to a General National Congress were held in 2012.
