Bordering South Africa,  Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola, Namibia is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Since gaining independence from South Africa in 1988, Namibia has operated as a democratic republic, with a president who is both head of state and head of government. Human rights and political freedoms are among the best in the region, though problems persist with the justice system, discrimination against women and girls and supporting people living with AIDS and HIV.
