Introduction

The Central African Republic is also known by its abbreviated form, namely CAR. The nation has been the scene of the civil war for almost 10 years now. As a result, its population growth is much slower than in the case of other African nations. In the past 20 years, their population grew by approximately 20% to the level of 4.7 million, according to the data from 2019.

As a result of a large land area of 623,000 square kilometers, its density is one of the lowest in the world - 7 people per square kilometer. Still, their economy is very bad with the total GDP (PPP) of $4.2 billion.
