Senegal's capital city, Dakar, is the African mainland’s westernmost point. President Macky Sall was elected in 2012 and again in 2019. Senegal’s official language is French.

Major commodities include peanuts, petroleum, fish, phosphates and cotton. While unemployment is high, the country has one of the region's most stable economies.
