Libya (English: Libya Arabic: ليبيا ) is a country in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea to the north, Egypt to the east, Sudan to the southeast, Chad and Niger to the south and Algeria and Tunisia to the west. The country is made of three historical regions, Tripolitania, Fezzan and Cyrenaica. With an area of almost 1.8 million square kilometres (700,000 sq mi), Libya is the fourth largest country in Africa, and is the 16th largest country in the world. Libya has the 10th-largest proven oil reserves of any country in the world.

The largest city and capital, Tripoli, is located in western Libya and contains over one million of Libya's six million people. The other large city is Benghazi, which is located in eastern Libya.(Which is waaay cooler and has been liberated recently "in 2017")

A middle-eastern country, currently under Muammar Gaddafi's control. Libya is hell on Earth to be in right now, as people are being brutally murdered. It is also being blown to pieces by American ballistic missles.

A country so destroyed by US armament that the US Media forgot about all the dead kids and bombed funeral processions that they believe the only scandal of Barrack OBomba is a tan suit.
"Obama's presidency was scandal free. Remember the tan suit??"

"Remember all the kids we killed, funeral processions, and weddings we bombed in Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen, and Iraq under false pretenses and lies?"

"You are a racist for disagreeing with the right of the black president to kill kids."

Beautiful country, friendly people(if you're asian,arab) lots of nice food. Qaddafi runs the country like a communist state(arab socialism)excluding concentration camps, vodka and sole dictatorship. Dumb people view Libya as they view Iraq which is soo wrong. The libyans actually enjoy their livingstyle and truely patriotic.

Makes nukes together with Russia,China,North Korea and Iran.An Ally with almost all the arab nations,Asia and Russia. Other country take Libya as a role model for their growing economy, and vast military superiority. Libyans are taught to hate America.Illegally gave firearms to Saddam during the invasion of iraq. Have vast quantity of oil and plutonium.

Really REALLY hates Israel
where's saddams WMD?

The Libyans are making them!
