Countries from a to z benin

  1. 1. Benin n (frz. Bénin) ist ein Staat in Afrika. Er grenzt an Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Togo und im Süden an den Golf von Guinea, genauer die Bucht von Benin. Bis 1975 hieß das Land Dahomey. Die Bezeichnung steht in Tradition zum historischen Königreich Dahomey, das bis zur Eroberung durch die Franzosen Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts den südlichen Teil des modernen Staates und des Nachbarstaates Togo umfasste. Beim Human Development Index steht das Land auf dem 167. Platz von 187. Benin (French: Bénin, formerly Dahomey), officially the Republic of Benin (French: République du Bénin), is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Togo to the west, by Nigeria to the east and by Burkina Faso and Niger to the north. A majority of the population live on its small southern coastline on the Bight of Benin. The capital of Benin is Porto- Novo, but the seat of government is in Cotonou, the country's largest city. Benin covers an area of approximately 110,000 square kilometers (42,000 sq mi), with a population of approximately 9.05 million. Benin is a tropical, sub- Saharan nation, highly dependent on agriculture, with substantial employment and income arising from subsistence farming.
