Republic of Somaliland
|Status||Proto Independent State|
|ISO3166-1 Codes||SO, SOM, 7061|
“A nation troubled and torn asunder, Somalia remains a no-go zone, but for its northernmost secessionist province of Somaliland. Somaliland, proudly `independent´ since 1991, is now slowly emerging as a potential destination for adventurous travellers. Admire remarkable rock paintings, feel the pulse of the fast-growing capital, walk along deserted beaches, visit market towns and be awed by stunning landscapes - wherever you go, you´ll feel like a pioneer. Its tourist infrastructure is still embryonic but it´s this sense of pushing Africa´s secret door ajar that makes Somaliland one of the most weirdly fascinating countries you could hope to visit.”

There isn't much information in the database for Somaliland, most likely because it is either a part of another country (i.e., a territory or posession) and therefore most international statistics are counted for the country as a whole, or, this is such an exotic place that little data exists about it.
