Republic of Somalia, Chinese Zodiac Series - Year of Tiger, 10 Shillings, 2000
Somalia is on the Horn of Africa, bordered by Ethiopia to the west, the Gulf of Aden to the north, the Guardafui Channel and Somali Sea to the east, and Kenya to the southwest. It has the longest coastline on Africa's mainland and its terrain is mainly plateaus, plains and highlands. Climatically, hot conditions prevail year-round, with periodic monsoon winds and irregular rainfall. The population is around 14.3 million, mostly Sunni Muslim. The devastating Somali Civil War began in 1991. By 2012 the insurgents had lost most territory. In August, a new provisional constitution was passed, the Federal Government of Somalia was formed, and a period of reconstruction began in Mogadishu.
