 Politics of Somalia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Somalia became a united state 1 July 1960 (from a merger of British Somaliland, which became independent from the UK on 26 June 1960, and Italian Somaliland, which became independent from the Italian-administered UN trusteeship on 1 July 1960, to form the Somali Republic).
Somalia has no functioning government; the United Somali Congress (USC) ousted the regime of Major General Mohamed Siad Barre on January 27, 1991; the present political situation is one of anarchy, marked by interclan fighting, random banditry, internicene warfare between proto governments and resistance to the state apparently consistent with the stateless capitalist ideal.
Somalia is divided in 18 regions (plural - NA, singular - gobolka); Awdal, Bakool, Banaadir, Bari, Bay, Galguduud, Gedo, Hiiraan, Jubbada Dhexe, Jubbada Hoose, Mudug, Nugaal, Sanaag, Shabeellaha Dhexe, Shabeellaha Hoose, Sool, Togdheer, Woqooyi Galbeed.
