Chad (Arabic:تشاد, Tašād;
French: Tchad), officially the Republic of Chad, is a landlocked
country in central Africa. It borders Libya to the north, Sudan
to the east, the Central African Republic to the south, Cameroon
and Nigeria to the southwest, and Niger to the west. Due to its
distance from the sea and its largely desert climate, the country
is sometimes referred to as the "dead heart of Africa".
In the north, it contains the Tibesti Mountains, the largest mountain
chain in the Sahara desert. Chad was formerly part of the Federation
of French Equatorial Africa.
