** Chairman of the Transitional Military Council: Mahamat Déby
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.
