The short history of The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia.

The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia, formerly known as Abyssinia is located in the northeast of Africa, in the Horn of Africa. Ethiopia covers an area of 1.19 million Sq km and shares borders with Somalia, Djibouti, Eritrea, Sudan and Kenya.

Ethiopia’s ancient historical landmarks and antiquities with its numerous ethnic groups and diverse cultures and traditions, its breathtaking landscape, magnificent crater lakes, and the Great Rift valley system with its lined lakes characterized by fabulous aquatic life, together with its numerous National parks with their stunning views, makes Ethiopia a three-in-one destination.

Ethiopia is old beyond imagination; the origin of Ethiopia is largely the origin of us all. More than 3 million years ago one of our first hominid ancestors walked that portion of the earth which is now Ethiopia's spectacular Afar Depression. Scientists have named her Lucy but Ethiopians call her Dinkensh meaning “Thou Art wonderful”.

Ethiopia is a land of natural contrasts, from the tops of the rugged Simien Mountains (4543m) to the depths of the Danakil Depression which, at 116 meters below sea level, is one of the lowest dry land points on earth. The cornucopia of natural beauty that blesses Ethiopia offers an astonishing variety of landscapes: Afro-Alpine highlands soaring to around 4300 meters, deserts sprinkled with salt flats and yellow sulphur, lakes with rare and beautiful birds, moors and mountains, the splendor of the Great Rift Valley, white-water rivers, savannah teeming with game, giant waterfalls, dense and lush jungle… the list is endless.

Ethiopia is also known as ‘The Roof’ and ‘The Water Tower’ of East Africa, because of its high altitude and its great rivers that flow towards the neighboring countries, including the origins of the Blue Nile.Ethiopia is one of the ancient countries of the world. Its history and culture goes back 3000 years. Its legendry history starts with the mythical Queen of Sheba who, after a visit to the biblical King Salomon in Jerusalem, gave birth to his son Menelik I, the latter king of the pre Axumite Empire. [According to legend?] He took the Ark of the Covenant from Jerusalem to Ethiopia, where it is believed to rest until now.

Throughout its long history, Ethiopia has had incomparable art and antiquities - the Ancient town of Axum with its amazing carved obelisks, Christian festivals and relics including the Ark of the Covenant; Lalibela with its extraordinary rock hewn churches; Gondar with its castles and Medieval Churches; the Monasteries of Lake Tana with their amazing mural paintings and relics; the Ancient rock hewn churches of Tigray and the walled Muslim city of Harar, plus so many more.

Ethiopia is also a mosaic of diverse cultures. Currently it has a population of more than 82.5 million people, from four different linguistic families, speaking over 80 languages with 200 dialects, a melting pot of diverse customs and cultures, some of which are extremely ancient.
Ethiopia is the only country in Africa to posses its own alphabet and Calendar. The Ethiopian calendar follows the Julian calendar being 7 years and 8 months behind the Gregorian calendar.

Country Location

Located in the Eastern part of the African Region, Ethiopia is a country endowed with vast historical and natural resources of sparkling and contrasting physical features. It covers an area of about 1.14 million square kilometers. In the East and the South East it is bordered by the Republic of Djibouti, Somalia borders it to the East and South East, Eritrea to the North, Sudan and South Sudan to the West and South West, and Kenya to the South.
Country Topography
The country’s topography features high and rugged mountains, flat-topped plateaus, deep gorges, valleys, vast rolling plains and low lands. Its altitude ranges from 148 meters below sea level at the Dallol Depression in the northeast, to 4620 meters above sea level at Mount Ras Dashen-the highest peak found in the northwestern part of the country

The country’s fascinating major geographical features among others include, the Great Rift Valley - that divides the country into western and eastern highlands; and different canyons, gorges and river basins. The major rivers of the country are:-Abay, Awash, Baro, Omo, Tekeze, Genale and Wabe Shebele. They are used as sources of power generation, irrigation and transportation.

The Country climate
Ethiopia’s climate varies from cold to temperate and from tropical to sub-tropical from one part of the country to other. Although the country lies within 150onorth of the equator, owing to the influence of high altitude, significant part of its landscape enjoys a temperate and pleasant climate with average temperature rarely exceeding 200 0C.
Further to this reality, sub-tropical and tropical climates are evident in the sparsely populated lowlands of the country. At approximately 850 mm, the average annual rainfall for the whole country is considered to be moderate by global standards. In most of the highlands, rainfall occurs during two distinct seasons: These seasons are the ‘small rains’ that come during February and March, and the season of the ‘big rains’ that rain continuously from June to September every year.
Country anthropological
Ethiopians enjoy a three century-old diverse culture and deep-rooted values. Major anthropological findings have proven this truth. This is further attested by among many others by the finding of the 3.5 million year old Australopithecus skeleton otherwise known as ‘Lucy’ discovered in the Afar Region at a particular place called Hadar including by the 4.4 million year old remains of an Australopithecus Remides which is envisaged to be man’s anthropoid ancestor. Various earliest hand tools unearthed around the same area and in some other parts of the country also signify the truth that the country is endowed with ancient history that has also made it to become one of the few preferred tourist destinations in Africa.
The people of Ethiopia are considered exclusive in the face of the world because of their ethnic and cultural diversity. About 90 million people make up the population of the country and they are represented by 80 ethnically diverse nations, nationalities and peoples who are living together in harmony; each having its own cultural identity one of the most daring attraction that most tourists consider the country a ‘must to be visited destination.’ The peoples’ unity is exemplified by their history of togetherness that has been evidenced for more than three millennia.
Amharic is the official working language of the Federal Government. Other indigenous languages i.e. Tigirigna, Oromigna, Sidamigna, Wolaytigna, Guragina, Afarigna and Somaligna are also spoken by substantial number of people. English and Arabic and French are amongst the foreign languages spoken widely.

Country Religion
The two major faiths that constitute significant number of followers are Coptic Christianity and Islam. The other faiths that have also substantial followers are the Catholic and Protestant faiths.

The Structure of the Government
The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) is structured constituting nine regional states and two chartered cities based on the country’s Constitution promulgated in 1995. The parliament is bicameral and comprises the House of the People’s Representatives and the House of the Federation. The House of the People’s Representatives is the upper authority of the Federal Government while the House of the Federation represents the interest of the nations, nationalities and peoples of the different regions.

Elections are held every five years at which people freely elect their representatives for the seats of the Federal House of People’s Representatives (members of parliament) and members of the regional councils.

The exchange rate of the Birr is determined in the daily inter-bank market monitored by the National Bank of Ethiopia as may be necessary. Foreign currency exchanging facilities are available at the airport on arrival and at public and private banks, or licensed hotels. There are official and legal financial entities (banks) that change foreign currency both at the airport and at different parts in Addis Ababa and in many other major cities of the country.
