The country was an English colony for a long time, then known as Northern Rhodesia (there was a Southern Rhodesia, now named UsefulNotes/{{Zimbabwe}}, infamously known for its president, Robert Mugabe, and his unlikely politics). It achieved its independence in 1964 and it was renamed Zambia (after the Zambezi river). [[WindbagPolitician Kenneth Kaunda]] assumed the presidency, holding onto it firmly until 1991.

Zambia had a lot of troubles, most of them coming from the civil wars, communist regimes and political pressures from its neighboring countries. All that, combined with the fall of the copper prices in the ‘70s threw the country into an economical hellhole, which eventually brought the downfall of Kaunda’s government.

Zambia finally managed to recover itself by the turn of the millennium, controlling the inflation and starting to exploit the mining resources. There has been a large influx of Zimbabweans fleeing their country in Zambia. The Zambian government has begun offering land to white Zimbabwean farmers who were chased off their lands by Mugabe's thugs.

Zambia had a lot of troubles, most of them coming troubles. Although relatively stable and peaceful itself, Zambia suffered tremendously from the civil wars, communist regimes and political pressures from its neighboring countries. All that, combined along with the fall of collapse in the copper market in the 1970s leading to drastically reduced copper prices and a massive reduction in the ‘70s national income, threw the country into an economical hellhole, economic hellhole with rampant inflation and unemployment, which eventually brought the downfall of Kaunda’s government.
