ABOUT SOUTH AFRICA 

The Republic of South Africa, is a country located at the southern tip of the African continent. South Africa is a very racially diverse nation. It has the largest population of people of Coloured, whites, and Indian communities in Africa. Black South Africans account for slightly more than 70% of the population.
Two philosophies originated in South Africa: ubuntu (the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity); and Gandhi's notion of "passive resistance" (satyagraha), developed while he lived in South Africa.
The country is one of the few in Africa never to have had a coup d'état, and regular elections have been held for almost a century; however, the vast majority of black South Africans were not enfranchised until 1994. The economy of South Africa is the largest and best developed on the continent, with modern infrastructure common throughout the country.
