ኢትዮጵያ በኣፍሪካ ቀንድ የምትገኝ የረጅም ዘመን ታሪክ ያላት ሀገር ናት። ድሮ አቢሲኒያ በሚል መጠሪያ ትታወቅ ነበር። በአፍሪካ ነፃነታቸውን ጠብቀው ለመኖር ከቻሉ ሁለት አገሮች አንዷ ነች። የታሪክ ሊቃውንት ኢትዮጵያ የሚለው ቃል ከግሪክ መወረሱን እና ትርጕሙም "በፀሓይ የከሰለ ገጽ" ማለት እንደሆነ ይገልጻሉ። ቀደምት የኢትዮጵያ ሊቃውንት ግን ይህን አይቀበሉትም። ስያሜው የአክሱም መሥራች ከነበረው "ኢትዮጲስ" እንደተገኘ፤ እርሱም የኩሽ ልጅ፣ (የካም የልጅ-ልጅ፣ የኖህ የልጅ-ልጅ-ልጅ) እንደነበር ይተርካሉ።

English Ethiopia - Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia

The Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia is a country situated in the Horn of Africa (landlocked as of May 24, 1993). It is the third-most populous nation in Africa, bordered by ► Eritrea to the north, ► Djibouti to the northeast, ► Somalia, with ► Somaliland to the southeast, ► Kenya to the south, and ► Sudan to the west. Ethiopia is the only country in Africa with an unbroken sovereignty and is one of the oldest continuous nations in the world. Recently regarded as "the cradle of mankind", Ethiopia is also the second-oldest official Christian nation in the world, after Armenia. It has long been an intersection between the civilizations of North Africa, the Middle East and the rest of Africa. Unique among African countries, Ethiopia was never colonised, maintaining its sovereignty throughout the Scramble for Africa.
