Czech Republic vs Liberia
Transcript of Czech Republic vs Liberia
By: Ellie Ray and Brianna Bruggeman
The Czech Republic
The Czech Republic is located in central Europe, between Germany and Poland. It is a landlocked nation with a landscape of hills and mountains in deciduous forest.
Liberia is located next to Sierra Leone and Cote d'Ivoire along the west coast of Africa. Liberia is a part of the African Savanna biome, a large tropical grassland that covers many countries in Africa.
The Czech Republic used to be a successful kingdom called Bohemia, until it became part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. This collapsed after World War 1, and the kingdom of Bohemia became "Czechoslovakia." Unfortunately, Hitler and the Nazis invaded, occupying the nation for six years. Eventually, after becoming part of the Soviet Union during the Cold War, the Czechs dissolved their union with Slovakia and simply became the Czech Republic.

Liberia was founded by the American Colonization Society as a place for freed African American slaves. The descendants of the freed slaves are the ruling class, while the natives make up 95% of the population. After a civil war from 1989 to 1997, Charles Taylor won the presidential election, which left Liberia in poverty. Eventually the country rebelled and Taylor was exiled, but not before bankrupting the nation. The nation elected the first female African president in 2006
