ivory coast, also known as côte d'ivoire, is a sovereign state located in west africa. ivory coast's political capital is yamoussoukro, and its economic capital and largest city is the port city of abidjan. its bordering countries are guinea and liberia in the west, burkina faso and mali in the north, and ghana in the east. the gulf of guinea (atlantic ocean) is located south of ivory coast.
prior to its colonization by europeans, ivory coast was home to several states, including gyaaman, the kong empire, and baoulé. two anyi kingdoms, indénié and sanwi, attempted to retain their separate identity through the french colonial period and after independence. ivory coast became a protectorate of france in 1843–1844 and later a french colony in 1893 amid the european scramble for africa. ivory coast achieved independence in 1960, led by félix houphouët-boigny, who ruled the country until 1993. the country maintained close political and economic association with its west african neighbors while at the same time maintaining close ties to the west, especially france. since the end of houphouët-boigny's rule in 1993, ivory coast has experienced a coup d'état, in 1999, and two religion-grounded civil wars. the first took place between 2002 and 2007 and the second during 2010–2011. in 2000, the country adopted a new constitution.
