Ethiopia is Africa's third most populous nation. The population of Ethiopia has above 74 million people.
Ethiopia is the oldest independent nation in Africa. It was home to the powerful Christian kingdom of Axum in the first century’s and became a Christian empire in the 15th century.
The third century persian prophet Mani wrote that there are four great empires in the world(at that time).The empire of babylon and persia,the empire of Rome,the empire of Axum(Presently Ethiopia) and the empire of china.

Ethiopia is a multi-ethnic state. Four main language groups: Semitic, Cushitic, Omotic, and Nilo-Saharan.
