The Republic of Togo is a country mostly covered with savannah and rainforests. It borders Benin, Burkina Faso and Ghana. The official national language is French. Present-day Togo is controlled by the Ewe peoples (32%) and the Kabyés (16%). 48% of the population are Christian, 33% animist and 14% Muslim. Togo is also known for voodoo. And fufu (a local dish of sweet potato).

Togo’s economy has suffered greatly. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) considers Togo as one of the poorest countries in the world, with a development undermined by political instability, lower commodity prices and foreign debt.

While industry and services play a role, the economy depends on subsistence agriculture, with industrialisation and regional banking facing major setbacks. There is also a marked difference in the rate of development between the richer south and the poorer north of Togo.
