Africa is the world's second largest continent and has more than 54 countries. More than three times the size of the United States, it is home to enormous mountains, tropical rain forests, grassy savannas, three large deserts, and the world's longest river.
Africa has a long history of problems in many countries. Civil war (fighting between two or more groups in the same country for control) has also been an issue. The lack of industries, fertile soil, and opportunities has caused many countries to be labeled as "third world."
