Senegal's capital city, Dakar, is the furthest western point of Africa. 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.

Senegal is a member of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), La Francophonie, and the African Union.
