The second largest continent in the world after Asia in both geographic size and population, Africa covers one-fifth of the Earth's land surface and contains 54 countries[[note]]56 if you include the separatist states of Western Sahara/Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic and Somaliland, from Morocco and Somalia respectively. While 46 nations recognize Western Sahara (There use to be 85 countries that recognized it, but 39 of those froze, suspended or withdrew recognition), the arguably more legitimate Somaliland has absolutely no recognition from anybody at all[[/note]], 8 dependencies, two thousand languages and upwards of a billion people. Its primary cultural divide is between the Muslim states north of the Sahara as well as Sudan (Known collectively as North Africa), which have more in common with the rest of the Arab world than with the rest of the continent, and "Black Africa" or sub-Saharan Africa further south. There are a ''lot'' of other divisions, though, including the differences between Southern Africa and the rest of sub-Saharan Africa, and the transition zones just south of the Sahara: the primarily-Arab [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sahel Sahel]] and primarily-"African" [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudan_(region) Sudan]] (which confusingly does not include the country of Sudan, where the people are for the most part culturally Arab but look "African" to outsiders).[[note]]This makes sense if you know Arabic; "Sudan" in Arabic means "Land of the Blacks," but historically this was purely a comment on skin color rather than identifying some "race" of people distinguished from Arabs. As there had always been dark-skinned Arabs, the "Blacks" in question could also be Arab.[[/note]]

In case you are wondering about African-Americans, they are American-born descendants of Africans brought over to UsefulNotes/TheUnitedStates as slaves in the Atlantic slave trade, particularly West Africans (with most African-Americans being of Nigerian descent) and Central Africans. They are not to be confused with Africans from the continent itself, though African-Americans did establish a country in West Africa, Liberia (Which is notably one of the only two countries in the continent that weren't colonized by Europeans during the 19th century, the other being Ethiopia[[note]]Ethiopia was briefly taken over by UsefulNotes/FascistItaly in the 20th century, however[[/note]]), with that country having it's own unique ethnic group, Americo-Liberians, as a result, and they also founded the capital of Sierra Leone, Freetown. Most Caribs are also descended from West Africans brought to the islands by Europeans in the same slave trade, and UsefulNotes/TheCaribbean in general has many aspects of West African culture in it's own culture.
