Liberia is a country located on the west coast of Africa. It is bordered by Sierra Leone to the northwest, Guinea to the northeast, Ivory Coast to the east, and the Atlantic Ocean to the south and west.

Liberia was founded in the 19th century by freed American slaves, and was Africa's first republic. It has a population of around 5 million people, and its capital city is Monrovia. The official language is English, and the currency is the Liberian dollar.

Liberia has a rich cultural heritage, with various ethnic groups such as the Kpelle, Bassa, and Mano. It is also known for its diverse wildlife, including elephants, chimpanzees, and pygmy hippos. The country has had a tumultuous history, including a civil war that lasted from 1989 to 2003, and the outbreak of Ebola in 2014-2015, which severely affected the country's economy and healthcare system.

Liberia is a resource-rich country, with significant deposits of iron ore, diamonds, and gold. However, poverty and inequality remain significant challenges, and the country continues to face issues with corruption, political instability, and human rights abuses.
