Ethiopiaball​​, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopiaball, formerly known as Abyssiniaball, is a landlocked countryball within in the Horn of Africa. He is bordered by Eritrea-icon Eritreaball and Djibouti-icon Djiboutiball to the North, Kenya-icon Kenyaball to the South, Somalia-icon Somaliaball to the East, and Sudan-icon Sudanball and South Sudan-icon South Sudanball to the West. The country is divided into 9 regions, and two Administrative Cities being his capital Addis Ababa-icon Addis Abababall and Dire Dawa-icon Dire Dawaball, giving him a total area of 426,400 square miles, making him the 26th largest country in the world. As of 2019, he maintains a population of 107.5 million inhabitants, the most populated landlocked countryball in the World, as well as the second-most populous nation on the African continent after Nigeria-icon Nigeriaball.

He came from a very long history as is considered one of the oldest living countryballs. He was a site of the oldest evidence of Caveballs. Tracing its roots to the 2nd millennium BC, Ethiopia was a monarchy for most of its history. During the first centuries AD the Kingdom of Aksum-icon Kingdom of Aksumball, followed by Zagwe-icon Zagweball, and Abyssinia-icon Abyssiniaball. In the 19th and 20th centuries, he was the only country in Africa to resist European colonial power along with Liberia-icon Liberiaball(although Liberia was colonized, just by the USA-icon Americans) except an invasion by Italian-Empire-icon Kingdom of Italyball during WW2

Currently, Ethiopiaball is very poor (But eradicating Starvation). He has undergone a series of famines, no money, no peace and lives mostly on dry clay. Slowly, however, the country began to recover, and now the Ethiopian economy is one of the fastest-growing in Africa. In some Polandball comics, Ethiopiaball is depicted to be peanut-shaped instead of circular-shaped. This is a reference to his famine, poverty, and for that reason, why he is "thin". But this could change in the next years, the country starting to show signs of recovery of the bad years, In approximately 10-15 years, Ethiopia will become very rich and and maybe until 2050 a very DEVELOPED country (And even can into Obesity and Diabeetus). actually he cants into starvation anymore.

His national day is June 4th.


Ethiopia-icon Ethiopiaball is a descendant of 8-icon 8balls , 4-icon 4ball and Semitic-speaking 2-icon 2balls.

Some of the oldest evidence for modern caveballs are found in his clay which is widely considered the region from which caveballs set out for the Middle East and points beyond. Ethiopiaball likes to say to everyone that he is the "the beginning of everything".

He was a monarchy for most of its history. During the first centuries of the Common Era, the Kingdom of Aksum-icon Kingdom of Aksumball (c.100-c.940) maintained a unified civilization in the region and is an early site of Christianity, followed by Zagwe-icon Zagweball.

He, as Abyssinia-icon Ethiopian Empireball became known to the world as Abyssiniaball from the 1700s onwards. He is very respected by the countryballs of Africa because he kicked Italian-Empire-icon Italyball in attempt to colonize him in 1896.

In 1935, Italyball came back, and succeeded in "civilizing" him this time, but only for 6 years, before UK-icon UKball helped Ethiopiaball kick him out in 1941. His colours became the Pan-African colours, which subsequently, many newly born African countryballs adapted.

In 1974, his empire was replaced with Derg-icon Dergball (backed by Soviet-icon Sovietball), and in 1987, Dergball was replaced with the PDR Ethiopia-icon PDR Ethiopiaball, a communist countryball. After 1991, he was put into a transitional government until 1995 when the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopiaball was founded. Unfortunately, Ethiopia was starving, and living in poverty, but now started to recover from the bad times. Ethiopia is now one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.

On July 9, 2018, his Prime Minister and Eritrea-icon Eritreaball's president restored diplomatic relations by finalizing their border, officially ending their border conflict.
