Liberia is a state in West Africa. Liberia was initially a project to settle former African American slaves after the abolition of slavery in the United States and one of the first independent states on the African continent. Conflicts between former Afro-American slaves and the native ethnic groups shape the country to this day. After a bloody civil war, the democratic election of a new president in November 2005 laid the foundation for a new democratic beginning in Liberia.
