Please note that this answer has recently changed. Up until June 2011, the answer was the Republic of Sudan; however, South Sudan declared independence (from the Northern por…tion) in June 2011. As they are now separate countries, the title of largest country in Africa now falls to: Algeria with 2,381, 740 km2, followed by the Democratic Republic of the Congo at 2,344,858 km2 Previously the Republic of Sudan (north and south combined) was the largest country in Africa, it covered an area of 2,505,813 sq km, (967,495 sq mi).
The largest country in Africa is the Sudan. It's population was 41,347,723 in 2008. The African country with the largest population is Nigeria. It's population is expected to …reach 155,000,000 this year.
The most populous country in Africa is Nigeria with an estimated population of 155,215,573 (2010) people. The largest country in Africa is Sudan and is not the most populated… as vast areas of it are uninhabitable.
The largest county in Africa is Mali t's bordered by Algeria to the North.
1. Algeria 2,381,741 sq. km 2. D.R. Congo 2,344,858 sq. km 3. Sudan 1,861,484 sq. km
South Africa with 1,219,912 square kilometers of area is the largest country in Southern Africa. Nambia ranks second, Botswana ranks third, Lesotho fourth and Swaziland is the… smallest, ranking fifth with only 17,363 square kilometers.
Answer: Sudan is the largest, followed by Algeria, then DR Congo, then Libya, then Chad, then Niger, then Angola, then Mali, and then South Africa.
1. South Africa GDP: $ 467.6 billion Global Rank: 27 South Africa is a middle-income, emerging market with an abundant supply of natural resources; well-developed financial…, legal, communications, energy, and transport sectors; a stock exchange that is 17th largest in the world; and modern infrastructure supporting an efficient distribution of goods to major urban centers throughout the region.2. Egypt GDP: $ 431.9 billion Global Rank: 29 Egypt is bisected by the highly fertile Nile valley, where most of its economic activity takes place. Since 2005, when the government reduced personal and corporate tax rates, reduced energy subsidies, and privatized several enterprises, the stock market boomed, and GDP grew about 5% per year in 2005-06, and topped 7% in 2007. The economy also experienced an increase in foreign direct investments. However, the subsidies have contributed to a sizeable budget deficit - roughly 7.5% of GDP in 2007 - and represent a significant drain on the economy. 3. Nigeria GDP: $ 294.8 billion Global Rank: 40 Oil-rich Nigeria is virtually a mono-economy as demonstrated by its overdependence on the capital-intensive oil sector, which provides 20% of GDP, 95% of foreign exchange earnings, and about 80% of budgetary revenues. The largely subsistence agricultural sector has failed to keep up with rapid population growth and the country, once a large net exporter of food, now must import food. GDP rose strongly in 2007, based largely on increased oil exports and high global crude prices. 4. Algeria GDP: $ 268.9 billion Global Rank: 42 The hydrocarbons sector is the backbone of the Algerian economy, accounting for roughly 60% of budget revenues, 30% of GDP, and over 95% of export earnings. Sustained high oil prices in recent years have helped improve Algeria's financial and macroeconomic indicators. Real GDP has risen due to higher oil output and increased government spending. The government's continued efforts to diversify the economy by attracting foreign and domestic investment outside the energy sector, however, has had little success in reducing high unemployment and improving living standards. Structural reform within the economy, such as development of the banking sector and the construction of infrastructure, moves ahead slowly hampered by corruption and bureaucratic resistance
