According to watchtutorials, Liberia is a small West African nation located between Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast. It has a population of around 4.7 million people, making it the 89th most populous country in the world. The majority of Liberians are of African descent, with around 20 ethnic groups living in the country. The two largest ethnic groups are the Kpelle and Bassa, who each make up around 20% of the population. There is also a sizable minority of Americo-Liberians, descendants of freed American slaves who migrated to Liberia in the 19th century. These people make up about 5% of the population and are mostly Christian. The majority of Liberians live in rural areas and rely on subsistence farming for their livelihoods. The urban population is growing, however, with over half a million people now living in cities such as Monrovia, Liberia’s capital city. This growth has been driven largely by young people seeking better economic opportunities in urban centers. Additionally, Liberia is home to hundreds of thousands of refugees from neighboring countries including Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast who have fled conflict or persecution in their home countries. All these different populations have contributed to making Liberia one of the most diverse countries in West Africa with a rich cultural heritage that has been shaped by centuries of migration and exchange between different groups from across the region.
