Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, is in northeastern Tanzania.
Tanzania is one of the poorest countries in the world. Tanzania's population is diverse, composed of several ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups.
It is a presidential constitutional republic, and since 1996, its official capital has been Dodoma, where the President's Office, the National Assembly, and some government ministries are located. Dar es Salaam, the former capital, retains most government offices and is the country's largest city, principal port, and leading commercial centre.
