Alternative History
Reorganized Africa

In 1996, at the Nairobi Conference, all the great powers of the world (China, USA, Russia, European Union, etc) and the entire list of African countries decided that in the interests of creating a peaceful and beneficial world, Africa must be released from its improper borders and that new and more ethnically sound country borders would be created. During the next six years, a committee with members from each and ever current country, as well as minority groups that wanted their own countries, would meet regularly in Cape Town to plan the new continent. The Reorganized Africa Resolution was ratified by the new and existing countries on February 12, 2002, and came into implementation two years later. Since then, only one major change has occurred, wherein the Republic of The Sahara was split into the smaller (and more manageable) Republics of North, South, East, West, and Central Sahara. There is sporadic fighting between the nations of Mauretania and Sahrawi, but for the most part the new continent is peaceful and prosperous.

Wars and Conflicts[]

Africa has been a remarkably conflict-free continent since the Reorganization. Only three main conflicts have existed:

  • The Mauretania - Sahrawi Conflict: Mauretania lays claim to a thin fifty mile wide stretch of land in southern Sahrawi leading to the ocean, so that it isn't completely landlocked. The United Nations Counsel on Africa awarded this to Mauretania in 2007, but the nation of Sahrawi disputes that claim and continues to occupy it. A state of undeclared war continues in this region, leading Mauretania to sink farther and farther into economic stress as its access to the sea is cut off.
  • The Boer Free State - Orange Free State Conflict: Fought only in international court rooms, this war involved the right to the moniker "Free State". Settled in 2009, it was ruled that any nation wishing to use that name may do so at will. The Orange Free State continues to contest the ruling.
  • The Somaliland Rebellion - an ongoing conflict, there are many leaders in Somalia that claim that Somaliland has no claims and no right for independence. Somalia has invaded that nation twice since the Reorganization: Once in April 2006, and later in February 2010. Their army is still occupying the region, but peace talks mediated by Ethiopia are progressing.
