Chad (official name: the Republic of Chad) is a landlocked country located in the central part of Africa and shares its borders with Libya, Sudan, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, Nigeria and Niger. It has been described as one of the ten failed states of the world, and it has also earned the notoriety as the "dead heart of Africa" due to its distance from the sea and its desert climate. The Tibesti Mountains in the north of Chad is the largest mountain chain in the Sahara desert.

More than 200 ethnic groups live in Chad. Most of those living in the north and east are generally Muslim and most those who live in the southern part of the country are animists or Christians. The country has maintained a long traditional religious and commercial relationship with Sudan and Egypt. Most of the population of Chad depend on agriculture for livelihood, and that too subsistence farming.
