Djibouti, officially the Republic of Djibouti, is a country in the Horn of Africa. It is bordered by Eritrea in the north, Ethiopia in the west and south, and Somalia in the southeast. The remainder of the border is formed by the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden at the east. Djibouti, which has a population of 849,245, is one of the least populous countries in Africa. The predominant religion in Djibouti is Islam, with a 94% majority, with the remaining 6% practicing Christianity. In the 19th century, Djibouti, then known as French Somaliland, was acquired by France through various treaties with Somali sultans. In 1967 the name was changed to the French Territory of the Afars and the Issas. The territory was declared an independent nation in 1977, and changed its name to the Republic of Djibouti. Djibouti joined the United Nations on September 20, 1977. While Djibouti is an independent state, it maintains deep French relations, and through various military and economic agreements with France, it receives continued security and economic assistance.
