Sierra Leone, located in West Africa, has seen economic growth in recent years. Much of this is due to the country’s rich diamond and mineral reserves, though these have also led to conflict in the country. Freetown, the capital, was established as a settlement for repatriated former slaves. English is the official language, but Krio is widely spoken.
