Africa map quiz – Do you know how many countries are there in Africa?

Africa is the 2nd largest continent in the world both by land area and population, with over a thousand official languages are spoken across the African continent.

According to worldmometers info, the total current population of Africa is about 1,328,579,066 people as of February 19, 2020, based on the latest UN estimates, with the total land area is about 29,648,481 Km2 (11,447,338 miles2).

The UN states that there are 54 countries located in Africa. Aside from 54 recognized states, there are also two states whose independence is disputed: Somaliland and Western Sahara.

Somaliland is a self declared state and recognised internationally as an autonomous region of Somalia. Its government regards itself as the successor state to the former British Somaliland protectorate which united with the Trust Territory of Somaliland to form the Somali Republic.

The disputed state is governed by a democratically elected government that self proclaims its independence. However, Somaliland is not recognised by any country or international organisation as an independent country of Africa.

Western Sahara is a disputed territory which has been claimed by both the Kingdom of Morocco and the Popular Front for the Liberation of the Saguia el Hamra and Rio de Oro (Polisario Front).

What is the largest country in Africa by land area and by population?

Algeria is the largest country on the continent by land area, and Nigeria is the largest by population. Some of Africa’s largest cities include Cairo, Casablanca, Lagos, Nairobi, Khartoum, Accra, Johannesburg, and Algiers.

The smallest country is Mayotte, located in the Indian Ocean, with the total land area is 374 km² (144 mi²) and has a population of 267,104 people.
