Description:   Sierra Leone is a small West African Republic. It is an ex British colony. Sierra Leone has an almost embarrassing amount of natural resources for a country its size. After the recent civil unrest it is getting back on track very quickly. In a few more years it will be one of the most affluent of all African states (it should be with all the natural resources that it has).
