Somalia is the farthest east you can travel on the main land of Africa. This country was created in 1960 when the territories of an Italian colony and a British protectorate were united. The mostly flat and arid land is only disrupted by occasional plateaus and rivers, as well as the longest coastline on the mainland. Among this land, civil outbreaks between warlords starting in 1991 have lead to the deaths of about 1 million people.
