Unique among African countries, the ancient Ethiopian monarchy maintained its freedom from colonial rule with the exception of a short-lived Italian occupation from 1936-41. Ethiopia is the second most populous country in Africa.  More than 70% of Ethiopia’s population is still employed in the agricultural sector, but services have surpassed agriculture as the principal source of GDP.  Ethiopia has the lowest level of income-inequality in Africa and one of the lowest in the world.
