About Ethiopia

Facts

Ethiopia is a beautiful country in the Horn of Africa. It is the most populous landlocked country in the world and the second most populous nation of Africa. There are more than 102 million inhabitants and the total area is 1.1 million square miles. The capital city of Ethiopia is Addis Ababa. In terms of elevation, it is the 4th highest capital city in the world.

More than 83 languages are spoken in Ethiopia and over 200 dialects. The national language of Ethiopia is Amharic. 

The Ethiopian calendar has 13 months and is 7 to 8 years behind the Western calendar. This means that when it is 2019 in the rest of the world, it is 2011 or 2012 in Ethiopia. The 13th month only has 5 days, or 6 in a leap year.
