Libya is a country located in North Africa, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south, and Tunisia and Algeria to the west. The official language is Arabic, and the currency is the Libyan dinar. The population of Libya is approximately 6.8 million people.
Libya has a rich history and cultural heritage, with influences from the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, and Ottoman Empire.
The country has been facing political turmoil and civil war since 2011, when a popular uprising led to the overthrow of long-time leader Muammar Gaddafi. Since then, the country has been divided between two rival governments, the internationally recognized Government of National Accord in the capital, Tripoli, and the Libyan National Army in the east.
The economy of Libya is based on oil, which accounts for about 95% of government revenue and nearly all export earnings. The oil industry has been severely impacted by the ongoing conflict and the production has dropped significantly.
The country has been facing a humanitarian crisis, with a high number of internally displaced people and refugees, and the lack of access to basic services such as healthcare, electricity, and water.
