Ethiopia is one of the oldest countries in the world, having existed within similar borders to today for over 2000 years. For most of its long history its governmental system was an independent monarchy, which was overthrown in 1974. The communist military Derg government that followed was itself overthrown in 1991, since when a shaky democracy has seen several contested elections. The African Union is headquartered in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital.
