Zambia (Wikipedia)

Zambia (/ˈzæmbiə/), officially the Republic of Zambia, is a landlocked country in southcentral Africa,[8] (although some sources prefer to consider it part of the region of east Africa[9]) neighbouring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, MozambiqueZimbabweBotswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of Zambia. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest, the core economic hubs of the country.

As per 2010 Zambian census, Zambia’s population was 13,092,666. Zambia is significantly ethnically diverse, with a total of 73 ethnic tribes. During the country’s occupation by the British, between 1911 and 1963, the country attracted immigrants from Europe and the Indian subcontinent, the latter of whom came specifically as labourers. While most Europeans left after the collapse of white minority rule, a fair number of Asians still remain.
