Madagascar is an island country located off the coast of East Africa, in the Indian Ocean. It is the fourth largest island in the world. The capital and largest city is Antananarivo. The population of Madagascar is around 29 million people.

Madagascar is a semi-presidential representative democratic republic with a president as head of state and a prime minister as head of government. The country has a diverse population, with the Malagasy people being the largest ethnic group, followed by Indo-Pakistani, Chinese and Comorians. The official language is Malagasy, but French and English are also widely spoken. The majority of the population follows traditional religions, but there are also significant Christian and Muslim minorities.

The economy of Madagascar is heavily dependent on agriculture, particularly rice and cassava, and also on fishing. The country is also rich in natural resources, including precious stones, cobalt and oil. The government has been implementing economic reforms and trying to attract foreign investment to diversify the economy and create jobs.
