The East African Federation (Swahili: Shirikisho la Afrika Mashariki) is a nation located on the African continent. It borders Ethiopia and Egypt to the north, the Equatorial African Republic and the Congo to the west, the Pacific Ocean to the east and South Africa and Mozambique to the south. It is a regional power in Africa.

Britain and Germany had conquered the territory during the Scramble for Africa. The territory would later be entirely controlled by British protectorates following Germany's defeat in World War I. In 1961, the British created the East African Federation, an independent state comprised of Uganda, Tanganyika, Kenya, and Zanzibar, the former protectorates that had made up the territory.
