Liberia Name and Land Facts


Settlement of freed slaves from the US in what is today Liberia began in 1822. Liberia’s name derives from the Latin word liber meaning free. The African country was so named because the nation was created as a homeland for liberated African-American slaves. Liberia is located in Western Africa, bordering the North Atlantic Ocean, between Cote d'Ivoire and Sierra Leone with a terrain of mostly flat to rolling coastal plains rising to rolling plateau and low mountains in the northeast.


About the population and people of Liberia


in Liberia, more 33 percent of the population lives within a 50 mile or 80 km radius of the capital Monrovia. Around 51 percent of Liberians are Urbanites while 49 percent are rural dwellers. Female genital cutting (FGC) is practiced by 10 of Liberia’s 16 tribes and affects more than two-thirds of women and girls. FGC is an initiation ritual performed in rural bush schools, which teach traditional beliefs on marriage and motherhood.


Brief look at Liberia’s economy


Liberia is abundant with water, mineral resources, forests, and a climate favorable to agriculture. Its principal exports are iron ore, rubber, diamonds, and gold. Palm oil and cocoa are emerging as new export products. During the 2014-2015 Ebola crisis, the economy declined and many foreign-owned businesses departed. Liberia’s main agricultural products are rubber, coffee, cocoa, rice, cassava, manioc, tapioca, palm oil, sugarcane, bananas, sheep, goats and timber.
