South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa, is a country in the very south of Africa. It has a multi-ethnic population of about 51.8 million, of which around 80% are of black African ancestry. It has 11 official languages, of which the most commonly used are Afrikaans and (South African) English.
Most of South Africa's population are descendants of immigrants from other parts of Africa, Europe and Asia. The region was ruled by several Bantu kingdoms before colonization, by European powers such as the Netherlands and Britain, started in around the 17th century. From 1948, South Africa was under an official system of racial segregation and white minority rule, known as Apartheid, until its first egalitarian elections took place in 1994.
South Africa is now governed by a parliamentary republic, with the President serving as the head of state and the head of government. It is one of the most developed countries in Africa and has the largest economy in the continent.
