Independent from Britain in 1957. Nkrumah's 'socialist' experiment was a disaster from which the nation is taking years to recover. There have been five military regimes and three short-lived civilian governments since Nkrumah's overthrow in 1966. The revolutionary military government of Rawlings eventually opened up the way for multi-party elections in 1992, and again in 1996 but as a presidential democracy with autocratic leanings. In 2000 there was a successful democratic election and change of government.

Secular state with religious freedom since 1992 following a period of some restrictions. Increasing tensions between Christians, Muslims and Traditionalists have brought in some limitations.
