Just a year after the end of the Tuareg rebellion, a coup deposed the democratically-elected president, with the military rule ending in 1999. The aforementioned unaddressed injustices brought a second Tuareg rebellion from 2005 to 2007. Niger experienced ''another'' coup in 2010, although this was contentious rather than condemned, as it followed a constitutional crisis that saw the incumbent president, Mamadou Tandja, attempting to modify the constitution so he could seek a third term. A year later, the country returned to civilian rule with the election of Mahamadou Issoufou as president. In 2015, Niger was embroiled in the Boko Haram insurgency from Nigeria and experienced attacks around the Lake Chad region. A multinational task force was able to struck a major blow to the organization, but occasional low-level attacks continue to pose a problem in the southeast.

Niger, officially known as the Republic of Niger ('''French:''' ''République du Niger''), is a large country located in West Africa. As with the Saharan countries, the country is sparsely populated compared to its size, as a large chunk of its territory (namely, the north) is arid desert that is rich in mineral resources but utterly unsuitable for a living. The country's middle portion is the extensive Sahelian savanna and is only a little bit livelier than the north, with the population being nomads. Instead, most of the settled population is concentrated in the southern Sudanian Savanna bordering UsefulNotes/{{Benin}}, UsefulNotes/BurkinaFaso, and UsefulNotes/{{Nigeria}}, where precipitation is substantial and the land is cultivable.

Niger, officially known as the Republic of Niger ('''French:''' ''République du Niger''), is a West African country located right in the middle of the Sahara. As with many other Saharan countries, it has a vast area but a small population primarily concentrated in the moderate south. While Its population are overwhelmingly Muslim (99%) with some bits of Christians populating the south, and its people mainly speak an Afroasiatic language (Hausa), it is still considered a West (not North) African country and is also not a part of the Arab world, even though it borders two Arab countries[[note]]UsefulNotes/{{Algeria}} and UsefulNotes/{{Libya}}[[/note]] and one non-Arab but still having Arabic as an official language[[note]]UsefulNotes/{{Chad}}[[/note]] (so it's a part of the OIC[[note]]Organization of Islamic Conference[[/note]] but not the Arab League). Niger itself recognizes French as the sole official language and is thus a part of the La Francophonie.

* The average lifespan in the United States and most of the developed world is 75-83 years. It's ''36'' years old for both sexes in Niger.
* The adult mortality rate is over 51%.
* It has the world's highest fertility rate (7.6 children/woman) which led to the world's highest infant mortality rate and how over 50% of the population is under 15.

The main reason for the bad state of human development is the fact that, since its independence from France in 1960, Niger has been in one way or another under dictators more worried about their pockets than the country's problems. Consider the fact that the first dictator was in power until 1991, followed by a [[HopeSpot brief period]] of freedom of speech, which ended in 1996 with another dictatorship that lasted until 1999. A constitutional crisis followed in 2010 when the incumbent president tried to stay longer than allowed and the military once again took charge (however, this time they were more welcomed since they were deposing the increasingly more dictatorial president Mamadou). If that's still not enough, Boko Haram's insurgency in northern Nigeria has led to thousands of refugees fleeing to neighboring Niger and UsefulNotes/{{Chad}}, particularly to the border city of Diffa.

Also, serious cases of drought come from time to time, putting the agriculture in grave danger. After all, the country is just [[CrossingTheDesert desert]], with only some oasis separated by many miles. A famine also struck the country in 2010.

The
population of Niger is diverse. The Sahara and Sahel are overwhelmingly Muslim (99%) with some bits of Christians populating the south, and its people mainly speak an Afroasiatic language (Hausa), it occupied by the Tuareg Berbers, who practice a nomadic lifestyle centered around the trade of salt and copper. The eastern Lake Chad region has a history of being ruled by [[UsefulNotes/{{Chad}} Chadian]] states and is still considered ethnically Kanuri. The border with Nigeria is part of Hausaland inhabited by Hausa, who used to rule a caliphate located in southern Niger and northern Nigeria in the 19th century. Finally, the western region, centered around the Niger River and including the capital Niamey is home to various Songhai tribes, who once ruled a vast empire stretching throughout West (not North) African Africa from the 15th to 16th centuries. The largest single ethnic group in Niger is the Hausa, but the Songhai historically have a major say in the country's politics. The only thing that unifies these disjointed ethnic groups is their traditional adherence to UsefulNotes/{{Islam}}.

UsefulNotes/{{France}} entered the region in the late 19th century and subjugated Niger in the early 20th century. For a while, it was relegated under the administration of colonies in the west, as much of the territory was out of reach. Even after it became a proper colony in 1922, the northern region was under military rule until after UsefulNotes/WorldWarII.

Niger became independent in 1960. Unfortunately, the country's politics have been consistently tumultuous after that. The first president, Hamani Diori, was a dictator who ruled for 14 years. He was deposed in a coup by the military, who proceeded to reign with an iron fist for the next 19 years. The first multiparty election was held in 1993, but the damage had been done; a Tuareg rebellion occurred between 1990 and 1995, partly due to the repression, partly because the Tuareg, like the rest of the non-upper class population, did not share in the prosperity of their land's uranium mines. Peace was eventually achieved and the government vowed to become more inclusive, but it was shaky and did not address the injustices.

Just a year after the end of the Tuareg rebellion, a coup deposed the democratically-elected president, with the military rule ending in 1999. The aforementioned unaddressed injustices brought a second Tuareg rebellion from 2005 to 2007.
