Chad ('''French:''' ''Tchad''; '''Arabic:''' ''تشاد‎ Tšād''), officially known as the Republic of Chad ('''French:''' ''République du Tchad''; '''Arabic:''' ''جمهورية تشاد, Ǧumhūriyyat Tšādis'') is a Central African country located at the middle of the continent. By area, it is the largest landlocked country outside of Asia.

The ascendancy of Idriss Déby as a president backed by most of the country's factions as well as the West in 1990 brought a semblance of peace to the war-torn country. [[LongRunner Déby occupied the post in 2021]]. His regime saw the spillover of the War in Darfur, bringing Darfur refugees and causing ethnic conflict from 2005 to 2010. Chad accused Sudan of backing rebels to try to undermine the government, while Sudan in turn also accused Chad of flaming the Darfur war. Peace was restored after both countries agreed to cease supporting the rebels, although the issues of refugees still linger. Another problem came in the TheNewTens with the rise of the Boko Haram, a jihadist group based in Nigeria's Borno state. During its height of power, Chad lost a small portion of the Lac region to the militants, who by then had occupied a cross-border area the size of UsefulNotes/{{Belgium}}. This prompted the creation of a multinational task force which conducted a massive operation in Lake Chad throughout 2015, ending with the militants being forced to retreat to Nigeria's Sambisa Forest. Sporadic attacks still haunt the country, especially since late 2018, when Boko Haram and its splinter group, an affiliate of Islamic State, made a resurgence in Borno. In 2021, Déby was unexpectedly killed by a rebel attack while visiting troops on the frontline.

Chad has a substantial amount of crude oil, which is the country's main export. Unfortunately, because of decades of mismanagement, neglect, and pervasive corruption, virtually nobody except for the upper echelons enjoy these riches (unlike, say, Libya, which despite all things considered is fairly prosperous). It is among the poorest countries in the world and its HDI is near the world's bottom according to the United Nations. The economy is overwhelmingly dominated by agriculture and a half of the population live below the poverty line.

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, two of the only western mentions of the country are a throwaway gag in ''Film/CatsAndDogs'', and the origin and getaway location of some serial killers in an episode of ''Series/CriminalMinds''. As for the video games, the situation is only marginally better, as Chad appears several times in the ''VideoGame/DeltaForce'' series (as a 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]]''.
