The country doesn’t receive much publicity and not many people are aware of the critical conditions going on in it; neighboring countries like Sudan or Libya tend to focus all the international attention. In fact, one of the only western mentions of the country is in a throwaway gag in ''Film/CatsAndDogs''. As for the video games, the situation is only marginally better, as Chad appears several times in ''VideoGame/DeltaForce'' series (as campaign in ''1'', ''2'' and ''Xtreme''). The country itself has a slow film industry as a result of the war and the lack of cinemas (turns out there’s only ''one''). Some Chadian films, however, managed to reach the western audience - for example, ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daratt Daratt]]''.

The country went independent in 1960, but has been in [[ForeverWar an eternal wave of civil wars]] since then. The deplorable French mandate, plus all the ethnic groups fighting for power, resulted in continuing disputes amongst themselves: each time one of the groups manages to hold control of the capital (and, de facto, the country), the other groups start another civil war to try to topple the actual group in power. Just to spice things up, once in a while external groups decide to join the civil wars, like France in the 80’s, Libya (which ended in a complete disaster for [[MuammarGaddafi Gaddafi]], since the government got the support of almost all the warring factions to expel the Libyans from their country) and, more recently, the war in Darfur has spilled over to the eastern region, causing an influx of Sudanese immigrants.
