Sierra Leone, officially called the Republic of Sierra Leone, is situated in western Africa on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Among the top ten diamond-producing nations in the world, it is one of the nations which made the term "blood diamond" popular. The official national language is English, and the capital Freetown. Once a British colony, it is now a constitutional republic, after a long-fought civil war which lasted from 1991 until 2000.
